• Fake Nissan GTR ads with attitude targeting Porsche, Lamborghini, and Ferrari that should be real

      These ads are not real. We wish they were though as they show some serious attitude. Manufacturers poke fun at each at times these days but it is very politically correct. The attitude of past ads (check out this classic Porsche ad that mocks Nissan) is lost in modern advertising where everyone seems to be concerned about not stepping on any toes. You can even try to do something fun without any negative intention but people will still get offended and raise a fuss.

      It is for those reasons you will never see advertising this aggressive in today's age at least in the overly sensitive and politically correct United States. It's a shame though, because these are pretty damn good. They also show how far Nissan has come that the idea of them taking on Ferrari, Lamborghini, or Porsche is no longer considered absurd. It actually is more than realistic.

        Good stuff; funny indeed. Bottom line is Godzilla can back up most of these claims as well unless you're talking about the "very exotic" offerings from these manufacturers.

        Exactly. Nissan has come a long way.

        Very cool ads either way. Someone did Nissan's marketing for them.

        $#@!ing awesome

        Love it or hate it Nissan developed one hell of an amazing platform.

        I am still not sure of any other car that could be considered a DD, with all the luxury and features, and have it capable of a 9 second 1/4 pass. Granted it will take an investment to get it to those levels but damn.

        Yup, love the GTR. If I never had bought my BMW in the past year I'd probably be driving one now. Ellwell, still have something cool IMO. Maybe someday I'll own a Nissan

        Those ads are great. Land Rover used to do some good ones too that built on their uniqueness:
