Been happy with Sumitomo HTR ZIII and recently the Hankook Ventus V12. Doesn't sound like you really need an "N" rated tire but I'm sure that will start some dialog.

I got Pilot Super Sport tires earlier this year for my Box S and they are really nice. Hardly any road noise. The ride is smoother on the highway and they grip as well or better than the Bridgestone RE11.

I've had the Michelin Pilot Super sports, but I need all 4 new, because of the rating change. I posted asking about the Hankook, since they are less than half price of the Michelin. I have asked out at Fernley raceway, since I have seen several cars with them. They seem to get good reviews...
