I had high hopes for that car too, until I drove it. You didn't miss anything. That car was garbage- heavy, underpowered, and ugly.

Dang, never thought of it that way, but totally agree. The G37 6MT was low volume for sure, but they padded that by making all of them fully-loaded. Great execution indeed.

Also interesting term, "executive enthusiasts." Folks that are willing to spend more, but old enough to know what a stick shift is, and prefer it. Obviously cars with manuals are quickly fading away, but I wonder how quickly the folks that want to drive them will follow suit. Clearly plenty of stalwarts on the forums.

I assume most kids born after 2000 or so have very little to no interest in a manual transmission.

Lexus LS430

I know it is completely two different ideologies, but has anybody thought about getting a Lexus LS after driving Gs? Its gonna be a little downgrade for me cause I will only have enough money for 04-06 LS430 after my 09 G37x was totaled, but I just took a spin on one of them at the closet dealer and I kinda loved it! What do u think? Is it worht it?

Why not look at an older GS300? You could find one relatively cheap, aim for the early 2000s models. Might be a better option, you could find one with a 2JZ-GE or GTE (supra motor, I think this is JDM only? Regardless the 2JZ-GE has a ton of potential for mods) and have a ton of fun with it, gives you a great platform to mod/grow. Swap in a MT, boost it to 600whp, enjoy.
