    Congrats. Those two cars compliment each other nicely, I think. People often expect the GTR to be a luxury car, it is not. However, by the same measure, the P85D isn't going to offer track prowess to the level of the Nissan. Both cars are wonderful and shine in their own arenas. I'd be thrilled to have those two cars in my garage. :)

    Excellent choices!
    That looks like my dream garage (and very fitting tags)

    Thank guys. I would like to say it is definitely my dream garage. Hoping to add an SRT Jeep in the 3rd bay, in future, the far future.

    My sentiments exactly. +1
    In fact, I was looking at the GTR before learning about the Model S a couple of years back. Never regretted the decision by a long shot, but if I had the money I would have both.

    Model X !!!!

    Been searching daily for that. Is the GT-R stock? That video will be viral in no time.

    I'm sure you'll have no trouble finding someone to drive either of the cars for you. I hope you'll do it at a track where it is safe. Which car do you suspect will win? I'll predict the GT-R but it will be very close, assuming it's stock with an experienced driver. P85d will take the first 1/8th mile but GT-R will catch up and slowly pass.

    The GTR is stock. If launch control is used, I think the GTR will win 1/8 and 1/4. The P85D may have the jump, but wont hold the lead very long.

    I'm thinking the same. With an experienced driver anyway. Reaction time will matter with the ICE however slightly.

    I seem to be more interested in your garage floor than your two cars. :) Is it 2 pieces of carpet, or some brand of floor tiles?

    I had a GTR and sold it about a year after getting my first Model S. I loved my GTR (2013 Black Edition) but once I got the Tesla I hardly ever drove it. I do miss it every once in a while but I know I would barley drive it. Just giving you a heads up :wink:
