That's why they compare the 911 Turbo to the GTR, and the Z06/ZR1 to Ferraris, Lamborghinis, and Porsche. Does value matter to people that are looking at buying one? Yes. To Average Joe's and keyboard commandos, price only matters for the sake of an argument. If someone is looking at a 911S, most of the time they are not cross shopping a Corvette, of any kind. Different driving experience, different type of car, and totally different market segments. The GT-R was supposed to slay the 911 Turbo, and it a lot of performance tests it did. Do you know how much market share it took from the 911 Turbo? Exactly 0%. GT-R got released, and 911 numbers still went up that year, and the following year, and last year, and they are up again this year.
Because 911s are the SH$%#$$#t
