While being a nice car the 911 is far from a great car. The reason it has "stood the test of time", "has been around for ever", etc is that Porsche wouldn't let go of the crappy design. There is one car left in this world that that has the engine hanging out behind the rear wheels. Everyone else figured it out a long time ago. It ain't that fast. But it sure is nostalgic, though. If Porsche had put all the effort they put into the 911 imagine what could be done. The Japanese and the american's (to a small degree) change up their offerings from time to time. POrsche has offered basically the same package for almost 50 years. What other manufacture would do something like that?

Now the Nissan is one ugly sum*****, but they must be doing something right. Five seconds ain't nothing to sneeze at. Wonder what the new ZR1 will do? Funny when it was built the NSX was a much better car than the same year Porsche.

According to KBB.com the 1992 NSX holds its value better than a 1992 911. But the Nissan didn't hold any value. Go figure. Too bad Honda didn't design the GTR, maybe it would look better (probably not), but it would be a better car.
