2018 Porsche 911 vs 2018 Nissan GT-R

Proudly Serving Farmington Hills, MI

Whether you’re a first-time luxury sports car buyer or a veteran high-end auto enthusiast, the Porsche 911 likely ranks near the top of your dream car list. Here’s how this iconic roadster, named the best luxury sports car by U.S. News and World Report, compares to one of its main rivals, the 2018 Nissan GT-R. Both vehicles can accommodate up to four passengers and have few changes for the 2018 model year.


While the base model of the GT-R delivers more horses than the 911, upgrading to one of the high-performance engines will leave the Nissan in the dust. The 911 GT3 gets 500 horses while the 911 Turbo tops out at a blistering 607, more powerful than the top GT-R powertrain. Despite its stellar performance, the 911 also delivers respectable fuel economy of an EPA-estimated 20/29 city/highway miles per gallon, compared with 16/22 city/highway mpg for the GT-R.

Interior Quality

When you’re in a Porsche 911, you know you’re in a luxury car thanks to the supple full leather material, ornate yet sophisticated design, and high-quality materials. The inside of the GT-R looks a bit plainer than the Porsche, and some viewers find the build quality and materials to be more utilitarian than posh.


With an investment like this, you’ll want your luxury sports car to last a lifetime. That’s possible with the Porsche 911, which received an incredibly rare perfect predicted reliability score from J.D. Power and Associates. In contrast, the GT-3 received just an average score of 3 out of 5 from the agency’s study.

The Porsche 911 is the recipient of the MotorWeek Driver’s Choice Award and the Edmunds Buyers Most Wanted Luxury Sports Car Award. Porsche Farmington Hills is your source for the incredible 2018 911. Visit our knowledgeable sales staff today to arrange a test drive you’ll never forget.
