Ever since Nissan unveiled the GT-R sports car, there’s been nothing but a growing rivalry between it and the Porsche 911 Turbo. Every time Nissan GT-R broke a record, the Porsche 911 Turbo was right behind it, trying to one-up its efforts. The same can be said when Porsche succeeded at breaking a record; Nissan was right there with their GT-R trying to get one in over Porsche.

With a heated rivalry forging on, the new 2013 Nissan GT-R Black Edition went up against its twin-turbo, all-wheel-drive rival, the 2012 Porsche 911 Turbo S courtesy of MotorTrend’s Head 2 Head show. With more than 500 HP under their hoods, both supercars annihilated California’s canyon roads, then squared off for an epic quarter-mile drag race.

We have to admit, this is one of the most impressive video we have ever seen featuring these two sports cars. Let us know in the comments section below what you think about it.

In this competition nothing is actually a loser.

It’s an impressive video, and I can’t help watch it repeatedly.

There is no need to compete; I’m stuck with GT-R from the start.

The video shows greater performances from Porsche and Nissan, and if I ’m going to ask if which car I’ll choose, it’ll be GT-R.

I think this video just made me like either supercars.

I love the video representing the GT-R and of course, the Porsche Turbo S. I’m now aware that the GT-R is not a typical car we used to know. It’s more than that, and I love it further from this day forwards.

I choose the former, just because I liked it from the start.

At least, Turbo S’s front fascia looks more innovative! Nissan’s design is old, not vintage, only old.

I am in the middle of these two; I won’t side with either. One outdoes the other in appearance, and one outdoes the other in performance.

I literally can’t decide, but it’s not like I have to choose, right? I just think that both are very impressive in performing and style.

Only Nissan’s appearance has distracted me, but it’s Porsche’s performance that has captivated me.

It’s like Porsche’s charm is going down the drain; Nissan has manifested more allure.

I think it’s about time that Nissan takes over the scene again. Porsche isn’t actually all that alluring even when performing, but Nissan has this charisma that makes your eyes locked on it.

I side with Nissan. Porsche is like a trying hard here, sorry.

None of these two’s looks are appealing to me, but I’d rather choose Nissan’s car when it comes to performance. It has a lot to fill, unlike Porsche, which seems to be at its limit already.
