Every driver dreams of owning a particular sports car. Your dream sports car likely appeals to you due to its sleek design and/or great engine power. Three sports cars in tight competition with one another are the Nissan GT-R, the Porsche 911 and the Chevrolet Corvette. All three vehicles have established fan bases because of their power, but which car is really the quickest? Take a look at a comparison Montgomeryville Nissan conducted between these three cars to help you answer that burning question.
The Porsche 911 has been in production since 1963. There are numerous 911 trims available to drivers, but the Turbo S models have the most powerful specs. The 2013 Porsche 911 Turbo S features a 6-cylinder 3.8L engine with 530 horsepower and a max engine speed of 6,250 to 6,750 revolutions per minute. This popular sports car can reach a top speed of about 195 mph and can accelerate from 0 mph to 60 mph in about 3.1 seconds.
The Chevrolet Corvette began hitting roads back in 1953. Just like the Porsche 911, Chevrolet produces a number of models trims for the 2013 Corvette. Of these trims, the Corvette Z06 is perhaps the most famous and the most popular. With an 8-cylinder 7.0L engine, the Corvette Z06 is made with pure power in mind. The 2013 Corvette Z06 features about 505 horsepower and an engine speed of 6,300 revolutions per minute. The vehicle can accelerate from 0 mph to 60 mph in about 3.7 seconds and is able to attain a top speed of 198 mph.
A fairly young vehicle, the Nissan GT-R has been in production since 2007. The GT-R is partly based off the discontinued Nissan Skyline, which was once considered one of the best cars in the world on BBC’s Top Gear. The Nissan GT-R has a 6-cylinder 3.8L engine and features 530 horsepower. The GT-R’s max engine speed is about 6,400 revolutions per minute, and the vehicle can accelerate from 0 mph to 60 mph in less than 3.0 seconds. In addition, the Nissan GT-R can reach a top speed of 197 mph.
The 911, Corvette and GT-R are all magnificent sports cars that have resulted from years of innovative engineering. Out of these three vehicles, though, the Nissan GT-R appears to come out on top. The Corvette’s 1 mph advantage in top speed is belittled by the fact that the GT-R’s 0-60 mph acceleration time is about 0.7 seconds faster. Additionally, the GT-R completed a lap on the famed Nürburgring track in Germany in just 7 minutes and 24 seconds, which is better than the recent 911 Turbo S time of 7 minutes and 38 seconds.
