The Dodge Viper was designed by Japanese guy.

Would that make Viper a non-American?

So should we believe someone who doesn't even know the proper name of the car (considering it does not have Skyline badge anywhere on the car) to test a car and tell which is better?

GTR vs 911 GT3 vs M3

Part1

Part2
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XzEivL1Kruo

EDIT: I just watched the Part2, idiot didn't even know there was the "M dynamic mode" to use to get a better launch.
This test driver does look like he can drive around the track though (he's a far better driver than the original video)

IIRC, the 2nd gen Viper was designed by a non-American.

The first gen design, I forgot. I think it was American

GTR is faster in many tests simply because it is a easier car to drive than 911 turbo for an average driver. It is easier to go fast,but it does not make it a better and more enjoyable car overall. It actually becomes quite boring after a while.

PS: I do have a lot of respect to GTR. However, I would choose a used 911 turbo over a brand new GTR with high mark-ups for similar price .

Also, GTR would be a much more desirable car if it comes with 6-speed manual,better brakes and 200kgs lighter.

So where exactly are you saying the 3rd gen rx-7 steals anything from? As far as I can tell no one else has a TT rotary and the body is timeless.

Larry Shinoda, the creator of the Boss Mustangs in the late 60s was a Japanese-born American. The guy that made the Enzo is a Japanese-born, western-educated Italian. The Japanese culture simply is not conducive to the out-of-the-box thinking that innovation requires.
