2015 Nissan GT-R vs. Its Competition

2015 Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary Edition (Japanese spec)
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

Whether you see the Nissan GT-R as a high-performance sports car, a supercar, or a street-going race car (it fits all of these descriptions, really), this is a car that has only a couple of rivals anywhere near its price point.

The new C7 Chevrolet Corvette isn't quite as quick as the former Z07 (at least not yet), but Chevy says it can get to 60 mph in just 3.8 and generate more than 1g of grip—and the Z51 handling package makes it an especially capable performer.

The current Porsche 911 Turbo S, on the other hand, can accelerate to 60 mph in as little as 2.7 seconds; its ride comfort is also a bit better (as is its drivability).

Pricing for the Porsche is a bit higher, though.

And if money is no object, you still probably should be looking over to the Bugatti Veyron and its true exotic-supercar shape.
