2016 Nissan GT-R vs. Its Competition

2016 Nissan GT-R NISMO N-Attack Package
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell 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 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 is only slightly slower in a straight line, but it offers a Z07 package that adds such performance equipment as carbon ceramic brakes, and the price starts below that of the GT-R.

The current Porsche 911 Turbo S can also accelerate to 60 mph in as little as 2.7 seconds; its ride comfort and drivability are also a bit better.

Pricing for the Porsche is a bit higher, though.
