Engine Power & Efficiency

Performance-wise, the 911 Turbo and GT-R are a lot alike. Both include all-wheel drive, selectable drive modes, and a 3.8L turbo V6 engine. However, taking a closer look at specs, you’ll see some glaring differences. The GT-R produces more horsepower (565 vs. 540), while the 911 Turbo dishes out 486 lb-ft of torque—19 lb-ft more than the GT-R. When it comes to gas mileage, the 911 Turbo is superior across the board. It earns a 19 mpg city/24 mpg highway rating, while the GT-R lags behind with 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway rating.

Premium Features

There are plenty of features for San Jose drivers to be excited about inside the new Porsche 911 Turbo and Nissan GT-R. Voice-activated audio control, a navigation system, an MP3 player, leather door trim inserts, a garage door opener, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror are standard equipment. Even so, the 911 Turbo seems to prioritize comfort and technology more than the GT-R. Unlike the GT-R, the 911 Turbo includes the following with purchase:

  • Power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel
  • 10-way power-adjustable front seats
  • Front-seat power 4-way lumbar support
  • Driver memory settings
  • Auxiliary input jack
  • 12-speaker sound system
  • Driver and passenger auto-dimming mirrors
  • Illuminated glovebox

Safety & Driver Assistance

With high performance comes the need for first-rate safety. Comprehensive airbags, LED taillights, LED daytime running lights, a rearview camera, and front/rear parking sensors are shared by both models. When it comes to driver assists, however, the GT-R falls short in comparison to the 911 Turbo. Purchasing the 911 Turbo grants you access to the following systems:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: Rather than simply regulating speed, Adaptive Cruise Control maintains a preset distance interval between you and a straight-ahead car.
  • Porsche Active Safe: This system is included with Adaptive Cruise Control, and uses radar sensors to scan the road ahead for slowing or stopped vehicles.
  • Lane Change Assist: Like Porsche Active Safe, Lane Change Assist relies on radar to detect vehicles in your blind zones. Although the system doesn’t actively intervene, it alerts you via a visual signal in the mirror when you should be cautious.
