67 year old happily divorced guy. I've always been into sports cars. Driving the N with the Performance Package is a treat. I have to decide if I want to track the car or not. I would like to get this car on Road Atlanta and see how it does.

32 yo Male. Married, no kids. Always owned small cars.

87 Toyota Celica GT
02 Toyota Celica GTS
02 Chevy Corvette Z06
02 Kia Spectra (don't ask)
06 Nissan Sentra SE-R Spec V
08 Honda Civic EX
20 Genesis G70 3.3T Sport

If I was only able to own 1 car, I honestly think it would be the VNPP. It's a complete package that is just so much fun to drive.

47 year old IT engineering manager, married, one kid in high school. I live small, turbocharged vehicles and autocrossing them, along with mountain biking and skateboarding.

I had a 2019 Veloster R-Spec and one unsecured truckload of chalk later, I’m in a red 2020 N PP.

I tend to modify things. A lot.

Hey guys...I'm 53, male and retired Air Force and a Systems Engineer. I just bought my 2020 VN PP...plan to use it as a commuter/daily driver. I guess if I have to have a commuter, it might as well be fun...and you can't beat the warranty.

I've been lucky enough to had a lot of great cars...currently my other ride is a 2018 Challenger Hellcat - the slow 707HP, regular fender version and one of the best, most fun cars I've ever owned. Otherwise, I drive a 2017 RAM truck and a 2018 HD Heritage Softail. I have indeed been blessed.

Take care...

LoL crazy number on the SS...hey give us some feedback on the 13 VT. It was a DFI motor right? Did you ever do anything to mitigate carbon buildup, any BG services or catch can? Why did you get rid of it? (y)

Cool man. What are some of the differences you've experienced after driving both cars? How do they compare?

The R-Spec was a weird car that I really liked. However, if the N was actually getting delivered in the US when I got that car (January 4th, 2019) I'm sure I would have bought that instead. I drove it a few times between College Station and DFW for work, but I normally work from home and only drive to take my daughter to school (not really an issue right now). I loved how light it was and I had changed several parts out on it. I autocrossed it a couple times before the local club lost their facility, and I haven't bothered to drive two hours each way to run in Houston. I might do that for this car though.

What was odd about the R-Spec was the annoying throttle control it would perform in Sport mode, and the suspension. I hated how non-linear the throttle response was, but the suspension handled poor surfaces really, really well without the worst in body roll I've ever experienced. But I do like that I don't have the Forward Collision Avoidance system anymore. It was a nightmare to contend with in DFW traffic, and when the windshield had to be replaced I had to leave it at a shop to get the cameras recalibrated. Having lived in TX and AZ for a long time, I prefer to have windshields replaced at home or in a parking lot instead of dropping it off somewhere and arranging for a lift. :)
