    • Porsche 997.2 Turbo S PDK with 530 wheel horsepower on race gas versus Nissan GT-R with 585 wheel on E85 from stop and roll

      Here is a race between two turbocharged six-cylinder vehicles with all wheel drive and dual clutch transmissions. The Porsche 911 Turbo S and the Nissan GT-R. The Porsche 997.2 Turbo is said to have bolt ons and race gas with output in the 530 wheel horsepower range. The Nissan GT-R is also stated to have bolt ons but 585 wheel horsepower with E85 fuel. So more power in the GT-R but the 911 Turbo is lighter. Who wins?


      The GT-R takes this rather easily and shows it is the more powerful vehicle. The 997 rips it out of the hole from a stop but the GT-R catches and passes relatively easily. Perhaps the GT-R owner was babying it out of the hole. Sure looks like more than 55 wheel horsepower at work though.

      Video is below, enjoy. Also respect to the 911 Turbo S owner for his support our troops decal, nice to see. Camo wrap may be a bit much but hey, his car.

        Awesome wrap on the P-car & the PDK is clearly is outdoing the GTRs DCT, but when you're down on power (Turbo S 530 WHP/ Race Gas according to the vid description vs. GTR with 585 WHP/E85) it's not a surprise that the GTR pulls away.

        if both cars were at 585whp the Porsche would win.

        The wrap was very impressive indeed...

        Maybe so, but the comparison is fair now as the Nissan is heavier and the Porsche lost.
        Yes, I would have loved the Porsche to take this one as I love the brand more than Nissan, but it didn't.

        That love does not mean I am a child saying "well, you know, IF!" Face it, Nissan GT-R won and there are no ifs, buts and maybes involved.

        Does anyone know what power levels of the GTR's stock turbo are? I know that the 997's are fairly limited (like ~500 WHP) on the factory/non-modified turbos.

        I hope this help answer your question although it's a 2008 Article.

        Found a better article on that website that gave exact numbers. Built motor with stock turbos running 24psi peak & 19psi at redline with an E85 tune made 642 WHP / 700 WTQ

        Fairly impressive for stock snails, but they were probably running a very aggressive timing since the motor was built
