TDLR; 2009-2011 model years is where the best value is had.

"So what can we tell from the table above? The first thing that strikes us is that the people who got their hands on the very first 2009 cars in late summer 2008 got an absolute bargain. Nissan adjusted its prices upwards that September citing increases in material costs, though it was probably also blown away by demand and kicking itself for not pricing the car higher to start with.

We can also see that today’s 2023 GT-R Premium looks like pretty great value after all, even at $113,540. That price makes it $20k cheaper in real terms than the 2017 Premium (which introduced the current 565 hp / 572 PS engine), and more affordable even than the 2018-19 base-spec Pure cars. And because Nissan has held the price at $113,540 since 2020, the car has offered more value every year since. The GT-R Premium has been better value than it is today, but not since 2011."

"And what about the GT-R Nismo? That was best value in 2016, a year after its introduction because Nissan carried the $149,990 price over from 2015. The Nismo gained a new look for 2017 along with the rest of the range, but also ballooned in price to $174,990, or $212,535 in modern dollars. Then 2020 brought another huge leap in price to an eye-watering $210,470 ($242,415 today) when the Nismo was upgraded again with GT3 turbos and carbon brakes. The flagship GT-R hasn’t changed much since, but neither has its price, meaning it’s more affordable in real terms."
