Nissan GT-R review

So which one's better away from the restrictions of the road, and which one's going to be faster against the stopwatch? Let's find out in an Auto Express track battle in the video review above.

The most powerful 911 in the range, the Turbo S, provides an extra 39bhp, taking the output of the 3.8-litre straight-six up to 552bhp and delivering a whopping 700Nm of torque.

At just under £80,000, the Nissan GT-R is a pound-per-performance bargain compared to the Porsche. Nissan's Technology Pack showcases a 3.8-litre twin-turbo engine which pumps out 542bhp and 632Nm of torque.
