This is the second GTR I’ve been lucky to have but both cars ( black) get road dirt kicked up covering the rear end even when the rest of the car is spotless. Anyone have this issue or solution?

I have no idea here.  I think it's simply a function of the aerodynamics and driving on dusty surfaces.  The road to my house is unpaved, so yeah, my car stays clean for about 10' of driving. :(

Yeah, it kind a sucks...I figured someone had come up with a dust repellant product more than ceramic coating by now

haven't seen a miracle solution to this yet and running catless doesn't help. i believe some folks PPF wrap the rear end which will allow for more abrasive solvents/compounds to be used on the protective film. that and waxing the crap out of it so you always have a layer inbetween the paint/clearcoat surface and the debris.

Keep it waxed really well. Follow up with a pressure washer connected to a deionizing system and spray it down between full washes.
