Panama City, Panama is a booming metropolis in Central America. It's a hub for international trade and there are massive skyscrapers going up all over the city. Of course, there are exotic cars (including this sizzling Red Nissan GT-R).

A side note: How many times have you had some college kid giddily proclaim to you, "I'm going to "Panama" for Spring Break!" ?   You reply, "That's wonderful. Central America is a beautiful part of the world and Panama is a wonderful place to vacation." The college kid then gives you a confused look and, while using a tone that suggests you should brush up on your geography knowledge, says something to the order of, "Huh??? Central America?... What?... Uh, I'm going to Flo-rida. You KNOW Pan-am-a C-i-ty." You then shake your head and simply walk away hoping that the kid will stumble upon Panama City, Panama while attempting to use Google Maps on his iPhone to show his buddies the best route for their Spring Break trip.

Here is a peak into the REAL "Panama", i.e. not Panama City, Florida  =)   Chevere!

Interesting Fact: The Panamanian currency is the Balboa (It is only made in coins these days. Paper Balboas are not longer printed). Since its creation in 1904, the Balboa has been tied to the US Dollar on a 1 to 1 basis. So, if you're coming from the USA, just bring dollars and spend them, as they are accepted in trade with no problems. In fact, the US Dollar is the paper currency that is used in Panama (since paper Balboas are no longer printed.)

@ Space Jockey: Yep, the Nissan GTR is a great value in supercars. You get alot for about $80K. That's why it's known as the 'Porsche 911 Turbo Killer' (similar performance for $65K less).
