Nissan has issued a statement announcing new pricing for the 2013 model year Porsche-fighter, the GT-R, which has sprouted some styling changes and more horsepower from the same 3.8-liter V6 twin-turbo.
The 2013 GT-R now starts at $96,820 in the US market, a substantial increase from the 2012 model's $89,950 price tag. Meanwhile, the Black Edition has also been made more expensive $106,320, which is up from $95,100 in 2012. The decision to increase pricing probably has more to do with the strength of the yen more than anything else.

Basically, this means the GT-R is now sporting the same price as the 2012 Porsche 911 Carrera S, which, unfortunately, cuts some of its pricing advantage over its most important rival, the 911 Turbo. However, Godzilla is packing more muscle than ever: 545 horsepower and 463 pound-feet of torque. The supercar beater sprints from 0 to 60 miles per hour in a blistering 2.7 seconds, fast enough for you not to care that you’ve spent some $7,000 more.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
