2014 Nissan GT-R vs. Its Competition

2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition
Marty Padgett Marty Padgett Editorial Director

Sports car, supercar, hypercar--the Nissan GT-R fits all those descriptions, and has only a couple of real rivals anywhere near its $100,000 price point.

The Porsche 911 Turbo is one; with its 480-hp turbo flat six and top speed of 200 mph, it's a hammer of unrivaled refinement, but let's face it, $125,000 will barely get you into one.

The Chevy Corvette is at the end of its current generation, but it's still captivating and available as a ZR1, where the supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 launches it to 60 mph in 3.4 seconds, and to a top speed of 205 mph, all for a price about $20,000 higher than the GT-R—with two fewer seats.

Money no object? Sign up for a million-dollar-plus Bugatti Veyron and let us know how that works out for you, dollar to value.
