Mercedes-AMG GT S vs Porsche 991 Turbo S vs Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary

Mercedes-AMG GT S vs Porsche 991 Turbo S vs Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary

Three of the best performing cars go head to head in the latest Motor Trend battle.

When the Nissan GTR came out in 2009 (US Spec) it looked like it was unbeatable and no one would take away the crown. But now new technology has come up and is making the GTR sweat.

We hope Nissan is taking notes and will make something extraordinary of the next generation GTR or else it will be very hard for GTR  fans to bench race in the forums.

 

 

So here are the results:

3rd Place: Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary Edition

Mercedes-AMG GT S vs Porsche 991 Turbo S vs Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary (9)

The once almighty GT-R is hit with a one-two punch of age and an audience-chasing softening, the sum of which is a disappointing showing.

2nd Place: Porsche 991 Turbo S

Mercedes-AMG GT S vs Porsche 991 Turbo S vs Nissan GT-R 45th Anniversary (1)

The consummate Yes Man, the 911 is everything you want and everything you need, so long as you keep things strictly business.

1st Place: Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S

Passion, lust, excitement—this is the car we, as drivers and enthusiasts, want every manufacturer to build. It’s not as frustratingly perfect as the 911, and that’s why we love it.
