2015 Nissan GT-R vs. 2015 Porsche 911 Review

Comparison Review

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Nissan GT-R or the Porsche 911, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Nissan GT-R is much higher than that for the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan GT-R is much wider than the Porsche 911, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Nissan GT-R, which is slightly longer than the Porsche 911.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan GT-R does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan GT-R has a much more powerful engine than the Porsche 911. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan GT-R and the Porsche 911. The Nissan GT-R has less cargo capacity than the Porsche 911, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan GT-R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche 911.
