BREAKING: Several People Still Commenting on Blog Posts About the Nissan GT-R
“We were as surprised as anyone else. After we milked that Nurburgring lap times story for everything it had, and then beat to death the GT-R Launch Control/Warranty controversy, we just assumed that future posts would go completely ignored,” said Mike O’Malley, Assistant Supervising Editor for Content and Stories at the CarsRulez blogsite.
Other fatally bland stories about the GT-R have described car accidents, funny license plates, and aftermarket tuning house versions with photoshopped body kits.
The comments on Nissan GT-R stories still follow the traditional rubric, either comparing the car positively or negatively to the Porsche 911, characterization of it as “just an Infiniti G35,” and finally complaints about the GT-R’s “crackhead” price.
“I’ll be honest,” O’Malley told MetaCars, “It’s not the good old days, when a post about some 750 horsepower version with beeswax brake calipers would get us 40-50 comments. But GT-R stories are still part of our gravy train.”
