Porsche Tries To Beat Nissan’s Time… Again

Written by tonks on April 24, 2009

2010 Porsche 911 GTRPorsche and Nissan are at it once again. The two automakers have been trying for more then a year to prove to consumers that they have the fastest supercars on the market. The clear winner each time has been the Nissan GT-R – but each time Porsche has claimed that the Nissan is cheating in order to stay ahead in the time.

In the past Nissan has been more then willing to have others test the car and to show everyone that they have done nothing except equip it with a better engine and chassis to make it faster then the previous model. But Porsche remains unconvinced and is trying one more time to prove that theirs will beat them.

They recently clocked the 2010 911 GT3 on the Nurburgring track in Germany. This new model has been equipped with an aspirated 3.8 liter flat six that is able to push out 435 horsepower. It also sports a track tuned chassis that Nissan GT-Rhelps to add to the performance and handling of the car. During testing of the supercar they timed it an 7:40 with Walter Rohrl driving.

Naturally we are all impressed with this time and even though they were not able to beat the Corvette ZR1 (which has 638 horsepower) they were confident that they had Nissan this time. However, these hopes were dashed when they were informed that the GT-R made it in 7:27.

Being the sore and speculative losers that they are they informed Motor Trend that this news was false and they believe that the best time they could achieve is around 7:56. So who do we believe this time. It seems that this drama could carry one for another year!

these articles are fucking garbage, whose writting these things and what makes them think people want to read shit they made up? the article titled Porsche Tries to Beat Nissans Time… Again. is a prime example. the GT3 is not porsches fastest track car, and isnt really that comparable to the GTR. Porsche has however won more 24 at le mans than any other manufacturer… ever. how many has nissan won…? in addition the research is based on motor trend articles… since when is that the automotive bible?

Porsche are good, but Nissan are much better than them. They have fastest cars of the world and highest quality at all.
