Porsche 911 GT3 Can Easily Hang With 550 PS Nissan GT-R

What’s great about this drag race is that both cars are stock and the Porsche’s weight advantage helps it keep up with the GT-R. Until a certain point that is.

These two model are remarkably different yet a little similar at the same time. Let’s start with the similarities though. The Porsche 911 GT3 will max out at 315 km/h (195 mph) and guess what, so will the Nissan GT-R. And because both of these cars are stock, we can feel pretty good about this “data”.

Also, both cars have the same number of cylinders as well as 3.8 liter engines, though one is a V6 and the other a boxer.

However, other differences are a lot more noticeable. First of all, the GT-R has 550 PS where as the 911 GT3 only has 475 PS. There’s also a huge peak torque difference between the two cars where the Nissan’s 632 Nm (466 lb-ft) completely overshadow the Porsche’s 440 Nm (324 lb-ft).

Then you’ve got the weight difference where the GT-R tips the scale at 1,815 kg (4,001 lbs) while the GT3 weighs just 1,505 kg (3,317 lbs). Even so, the Nissan will definitely get off the line quicker, reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 2.7 seconds, whereas the Porsche needs an extra 0.8 seconds. It’s almost a full second slower off the mark, so good thing this race had a rolling start.

As for what happens in the video, well, it’s pretty darn close – which probably shouldn’t surprise anybody since even though the Porsche lacks muscle, it more than makes up for it by being so “slim”.
