Nissan GT-R v Porsche 911 Turbo video part 1

Published: 19 February 2008 Updated: 26 January 2015

Nissan GT-R vs Porsche 911 Turbo – it’s the clash of the year. And CAR has pitched the benchmark Porsche against the first GT-R to arrive in the UK, and you can watch the video at the foot of this page.

Two blown, four-wheel drive cars, each nudging the 500bhp mark, head-to-head on Rockingham’s infield circuit. In the first part of our video, assistant editor Ben Barry takes out the 911 Turbo to set the time for the GT-R to chase. But then the storm clouds blow in… Check out how the Nissan gets on in our second instalment.

The April 2008 issue of CAR, on sale Wednesday 27 February, has the definitive GT-R test, over 17 pages. A GT-R showdown on road, on track, versus the clock, and up against three sensational rivals.

Don’t forget, if you’ve got any videos you’d like to share with the world you can publish them directly onto this website. (If you’re having problems viewing this video you may need to update to the latest version which you can do free here.)
