2019 Nissan GT-R vs. Its Competition

2019 Nissan GT-R image

The Acura NSX is the GT-R’s closest competitor as a nostalgia-laden supercar from Japan, but with its mid-engine hybrid design, it’s less utilitarian but more futuristic.

Audi’s popular R8 delivers all-wheel-drive V-10 power and excitement with a tech-savvy approach but carries a badge premium over the Nissan.

The Chevrolet Corvette is as strong a performance value as ever, especially with the world-beating ZR1 model now available, but its all-American character isn’t for everyone.

The Porsche 911 range spans sports car, grand tourer, and supercar territory, and is as quick as the GT-R in Turbo S guise but significantly more expensive.
