In a telling example of how awry things are at Nissan they are still trying to get sell 50 (thatís right, not 500 but fifty) of their special edition GT-R50. Only fifty are to be made but itís been available to order for a year and Nissan still has not sold all 50. Production is supposed to begin early next year but with Nissanís current cash crunch what are the odds this will actually happen? Nissan pricing is absolutely insane for this car (over $1,000,000.00 USD) which Iím sure has been a huge factor. With all of the ultra high performance available these days Nissan apparently thought bilking 50 unaware wealthy bonobos was a sound business plan. Hereís the link.
I know I rant about Nissan and I donít think theyíre the worst vehicles on the market by any means. My problem is that Nissan has been portrayed as the ďsaviorĒ of Mitsubishi but the truth is really the opposite.
