Ever seen a Spanish bull fight? Absolute brutality. The fight goes on for what seems like a lifetime, as you watch the enraged bull charging towards the bullfighter. The bullfighter then outsmarts the bull and pulls the red cape away. Sometimes this will end with the bullfighter injured, yet the bullfight always ends with the bull being killed. This is like the ferocious battle between the 2011 Nissan GTR and the 2011 Porsche 911 Turbo S. The Nissan is like the bullfighter; always the clever one with speed and agility. While the Porsche is the Bull, the one that powers the fight with all muscle and brawn, but no brains and after it fails; they will bring out another one.
The Porsche Turbo S uses a twin turbo flat six producing 523bhp and this cannons the Porsche from 0 to 60mph in 3.3 seconds. Want to know the top speed? 196mph. Utterly insane! All this acheived with a super lightweight aluminium chassis. The Porsche should be bought however, for the thrill of the handling; It is simply sublime, you will be able to go maximum throttle around a hairpin with pinpoint precision. There is only a slight downside because all the thrills in the world will never make up for the price: £132,600.
The Nissan GTR on the other hand is £67,000 leaving you with a saving of £65,600 from the Porsche. The thing with the Nissan is the badge. You really have to be a real car enthusiast to know it that it is a supercar that can warp towards 60mph in 3.0 seconds. But if you want to be a little discrete, then buy it, because it isn’t exactly a Skoda, it is face-crushingly rapid; it’ll hit the limiter on its semi-automatic double clutch gearbox at 196mph. The car is powered by a 530bhp V6. The on board computer has more power than five apple macs and has security onboard that was designed by the japanese military. This is all so that it slots right in the supercar league. With this GTR it isn’t all power and no cornering. This Godzilla of a car, lapped the nurburgring in 7 minutes and 24 seconds which is 17 seconds faster than the Porsche. Proving that Brains always beat brawn. The bull loses out to the bullfighter, again.
Overall the Nissan wins this test, because not only is it faster, it is half the price of the Porsche and is less ugly than the Porsche. The Porsche loses out on this because as always its just another 911.
There is another Porsche coming along; this time not a 911, but something a whole lot more beastly.
