The Porsche Is The Most Powerful And The Lightest Of The Lot
The Nissan GT-R Nismo is powered by a 3.8-liter, twin-turbo V-6 engine that makes 600 horses and 481 pound-feet of torque.
Power is channeled to all four wheels via a six-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
The Honda NSX is a beast, too. It features a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine and a trio of electric motors to assist it. It produces 581 horses and 476 pound-feet of twist combined.
It comes with a nine-speed automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system.
As for the Porsche 911 Turbo S, it comes with a 3.5-liter, twin-turbo flat-six engine. It churns out 650 horses and 590 pound-feet of twist.
Power is routed to all the wheels here as well, via an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox.
Courtesy of all those motors, the NSX is the heaviest of the lot, weighing in at 3,878 pounds. The GT-R Nismo isn’t too far behind, weighing at 3,754 pounds, whereas the Porsche is the lightest, standing in at 3,615 pounds; over 250 pounds lighter than the NSX.
The Porsche 911 Turbo S Is In A Different League Altogether
The first standing drag race was canceled out since the GT-R was in manual mode. They restarted the race and the Porsche just flew off the line. The NSX got a pretty good launch, too, but the Porsche was too much for it. The GT-R Nismo managed to catch the NSX at the finish line and edged it to come second.
The second drag race started out completely differently. The GT-R got the best start this time around and left both its rivals behind. The 911 Turbo S, however, got ahead of the Nismo after a few seconds. The NSX, yet again, came last. The Porsche completed the race in 10.4 seconds, 0.4 seconds quicker than the Nissan and 0.7 seconds quicker than the Honda.
Next up was the rolling from 50 mph in comfort settings. The Nismo had the slowest kickdown here. The Porsche, despite being in a supposedly relaxed setting, was way quicker and faster than both the Japanese cars. The GT-R got past the NSX well before the half-mile mark. The Porsche was well ahead of the GT-R and probably out of sight of the NSX.
In the second rolling race from 50 mph in the sportiest setting and manual mode. There was no difference in any aspect of the race except for the reduced gap at the end. The Porsche and the NSX got better starts at kickdown, but the GT-R eventually got past the NSX. All this while, the Porsche was leading the way.
The final round was the brake test from 70 mph. The Porsche 911 Turbo S took the shortest distance to stop, whereas the Honda NSX and the Nissan GT-R Nismo almost stopped in the same distance further ahead. However, the NSX was adjudged the winner, which means it got a consolation win over its counterpart.
