Haha seriously, there is no comparison, what's the point? If a GT-R smokes a 911 turbo, Z06, etc, how does an IS-F stand a chance?

Well, I've seen some UK magazine did comparison of GT-R, R8, 911 and M3. So, why not IS-F? Sure, GT-R is faster, handles better, etc; still it would be very interesting to read how they stand against each other in real life. Unf, it's almost impossible to read the scan...

It's a comparison because it's the only other japanese performance car with a similar introductory pricetag. (not including dealer markup)

You just answered your own question.

From what I can read of the article, the IS-F aquitted itself quite well against the GT-R.....
They're not in the same league, for sure, but the IS-F is much more affordable and available...and without dealer markup.
To my mind the Lex is better looking too.:)

I still doubt you can run even with a GT-R on the track even with a ton of mods on an IS-F. And the price gap isn't huge to begin with, by next year the GT-R dealer markups should be gone...

Take? LF-A... But buy with money? There's no comparison. I've heard price figures for the LF-A that are more than double the price of the GTR.
