It doesn’t have a technological advantage anymore, but the Nissan GT-R is still a supercar. This doubles as the sharper and faster 2022 GT-R NISMO. However, it does have a major competitor in the form of the 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo S. This supercar in car shape has already run into the UK’s GT-R Nismo once before. But now, the YouTube team choke house The Supercar Titans brought back these supercars for a second match.

Although the Nissan GT-R was a bargain when it debuted, the 2022 GT-R NISMO topped $200,000. The Nismo Special Edition, with its convertible carbon-fiber hood and forged aluminum wheels, is likely to be even more pricier.
But what’s even more surprising is that despite being the most expensive Porsche 911, the base Turbo S is a bit cheaper than the NISMO. Admittedly, only about $3,000, but still. However, once you start adding options, the GT-R quickly becomes the most affordable option.
The 2022 Turbo S is not only the most expensive Porsche 911, although it is also the fastest. And if you pay $10,340 more, it gets faster and lighter with the lightweight package.
This removes the rear seats and some sound-deadening material, but adds carbon fiber bucket seats and thinner glass. Porsche also reset the adaptive shocks to reduce the ride height by 0.8 inches. The result is an internal combustion car that rolls a Model S Plaid in a straight line on a real road. And as the table above suggests, the 2022 Nissan GT-R Nismo could embarrass as well.
But don’t necessarily count the GT-R out yet.

choke houseThe race tests conducted by the Nissan GT-R Nismo 2022 reflect the previous encounter between the Nissan GT-R Nismo and the Porsche 911 Turbo S. The hosts ran two-mile drag races, one from a stationary start and one from a rolling start. So, given the recent struggle of these supercars, you would have thought the 911 would be the easy winner.
However, it is worth noting that when choke house Running a GT-R Nismo against a C8 Corvette, Nissan won. It doesn’t sound very impressive at first, but on paper, the C8 does meet or beat some GT-R numbers. However, the GT-R came out victorious.
In addition, 0-60 times does not always reflect real-world performance results, but often 5-60 times. and in car and driverIn my hands, the GT-R Nismo is just 0.1 seconds behind both models of the 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo S. Or rather, the pre-2020 model, without the weight-saving carbon-ceramic brakes and carbon-fiber body panels, was just 0.1 seconds behind.
In short, the 2022 Nissan GT-R Nismo didn’t completely get out of the race.

Unfortunately, although the 2022 Nissan GT-R Nismo Special Edition could match the Porsche 911 Turbo S at a short distance, the mileage was too much. In both the stop and start races, the lightweight 911 Turbo S beat the GT-R Nismo. And she beat it by the length of the car, too.
Admittedly, the GT-R is still in its R35-gen form, while the 911 has advanced two generations since the R35 debuted. So, it’s not terribly surprising that the more extreme Turbo S could beat the GT-R. However, with Nissan considering a GT-R hybrid, the next-generation Nismo could be a 911 killer.
Regardless, this supercar goes for the 911.
