1,100-hp Nissan GT-R vs. 950-hp Porsche 911 drag race settles what you’d expect

July 20, 2012

The unlimited drag racing scene in Moscow has produced a few notable showdowns already, but this recent run between a Nissan GT-R boosted to 1,100 hp and a Porsche 911 Turbo packing 950 hp turns into one of the more even matchups yet -- although it doesn't look that way from the start, and it takes a mile to sort things out.If you think the Nissan will stomp all over the Porsche from the get-go, remember that even in stock form the GT-R weighs up to 400 lbs. more than the Porsche, thanks to its all-wheel-drive, larger size and twin-turbo infrastructure. If only there was a Bugatti Veyron lying around to take the winner on.
