Drag Battle Of The Titans: 1570 HP Nissan GT-R Vs 1600 HP Porsche 911 Turbo S

King Kong vs Godzilla: a 1600 HP Porsche 911 Turbo S and a 1570 HP Nissan GT-R line up for an epic Duel

The two cars are popular tuning platforms

Both pack around 1,600 hp, DCT, and AWD, but that's where the similarities end

Porsche has the tire advantage

Both cars run street tires, but the 911 has semi-slicks at the rear

The GT-R is known for its exceptional grip

But this one has street tires all around

The Porsche has a better power-to-weight ratio

1,600 hp and 3,527 lbs

The Nissan GT-R needs a diet

Its 1,670 hp have to lug around 3,858 lbs

However, the GT-R packs way more torque

Its 4.1-liter stroker engine develops 1,254 lb/ft vs the Porsche's 996 lb/ft

But the 911 Turbo S has a quicker gearbox

The PDK unit is noticeably better than the R35's outdated 6-speed DCT

GT-R has more torque than the tires can handle

Godzilla spins around in the first race

Meanwhile, the Porsche lays down crazy numbers

1/4-mile: 9.12 seconds at 165.65 mph 0-60 mph: 2.28 seconds

The GT-R also manages to lay down some numbers

1/4 mile: 9.92 seconds at 165.15 mph 0-60 mph: 2.31 seconds

Things get crazier at the 1/2 mile drag

Porsche manages 14.13 seconds at 200.48 mph

The GT-R still struggles for traction, but follows closely

It manages 14.27 seconds at 192,58 mph

Godzilla manages to find some traction for the rolling race

However, it's too little too late, as the 911 already pulled ahead

Porsche wins 3 out of 3 races

More power, less weight, PDK, and semi-slicks play to its advantage

But despite being limited by the tires, GT-R performed admirably

Props to the driver for having b***s of steel to drive a 1,600 hp car on street tires
