    So for 7 grand you can go 3 years newer, 10k miles fewer, and special(er) edition...? Does the 09 hold value better due to the high rev launch or am I missing something?

    ^ Who knows what to trust when a stealership employee throws out a $ figure? I'm just repeating what they said. Perhaps they underpaid the guy for his trade-in, which wouldn't be a surprise. But low- to mid-60s is what I have heard repeatedly as the value of a clean low-miles 2009.

    Based on this statement, the logic would be to purchase this newer GTR rather than a 2009, regardless if the 2009 holds higher value.
    The newer the better, correct?

    I was thinking more from the perspective of already owning the 09. The dealer was basically saying he could trade in his car for a newer, lower mileage, special edition version, with I think a decent horsepower bump, for 7k. I was wondering if the high rev launch from the earlier years or something else made them hang close in price, because otherwise why not jump on it?

    The price the Gen'l Mgr noted for the 2012 was in answer to my question regarding what the trade-in value was. Without a doubt, his resale price to the next owner would be many thousands higher. So the trade-up premium to swap the 09 for the 12 at the dealership wouldn't be $7-10K; I'm guessing it would more likely be ~$12-15K. But obviously, the best way to buy (and especially to sell) a used GT-R (or most any car) would be in a private sale, not at a dealer.

    Im thinking of putting a long term (5 yr.) plan on purchasing one. Depending on how I do with bonuses in the next few years, I want one. Such an awesome car.

    I never see myself owning one. I don't like to be in debt so I won't finance..and for me to actually save an extra $60-$80 grand and to actually spend it on a car (instead of saving it, house additions/work, etc) I would not be able to justify it.

    ^ I hear you! Car debt is not the way to go. I bought mine for cash as my gift to myself for not taking ANY vacation during the first 8 years of having my own business.

    This!

    When I'm in your shoes, that's the exact same thing I'm doing. You probably saved money buying the gtr vs lost productivity from the vacations you would have taken during those 8 years

    In this case, the gift was justified
