LOL! Ya, my GTR is a low 10 second 1/4 mile car. Not much out there would be able to keep up.

I noticed you mentioned the GTR. You'd be surprised at how big the trunk is! haha, it is a great all weather sports car but of course limited passenger/cargo space.
I hear you on the compromise between on-road and using different vehicles. My dilemma that led me to the JGC Diesel is that I like to do long drives and trips and then go-off roading and the back trails on a whim..
I recently got back from a trip to lower Alabama from North Carolina in my JKU Rubicon and I realised just how bad that vehicle is on the highway. I don't know if it's just because I am getting older, but those flat surfaces with associated wind noise, loud off-road tires, solid axles with massive drift and wobble having to always keep your hand on the wheel or it's all over the road.
The JKUR is great for local off-roading. Take the top off, spend an afternoon on the rocks its awesome. But drive a few states away on a trip, very uncomfortable and it doesn't like to drive fast (I drive 80-85+ on the highway). Plus the abysmal gas mileage.
So I decided to sell it as I don't spend much time on very difficult rocks and stuff. My modified WK2 chipped Diesel should be able to do 80-90% of what my modified JKUR can do off-road, and like 5x more comfortable/better on highway/technology and 2x gas mileage.
For me the JKUR only checks two blocks: Great off-road and good cargo.
Chipped modified WK2 Diesel checks off many: Good off-road, good cargo, good MPG, good trip vehicle, "peppy" speed wise, great interior, good technology
GTR: super fast + AWD all weather speed, looks great
SRT WK2: Good cargo, Good trip vehicle, fast, great interior, good technology, looks nice
SRT is awesome, but if I took it on a long trip I'd be limited to street and light trails, plus the gas mileage would be eek!
Actually, if they kept some of the off-road features on the SRT I would have considered it.
