The Nissan GT-R is essentially a supercar with a four-seat chassis, so finding direct competitors for it is not an easy task. The first competitor to the plate will be the 2013 Ferrari FF, which is set to be released soon and it will be a carryover from the 2012 model year. The FF’s 651-horsepower, 6.3-liter V-12 engine puts it at 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds and a top speed of 208 mph all while seating four people. Next up is the 2013 Porsche 911 Turbo, whose 500-horsepower 3.8-liter, six-cylinder engine gets it to 60 mph in 3.4 to 3.5 seconds and its two rear seats allow it to squeeze four people into its cabin. Next up would have to be the Ford Shelby GT500 with its 662-horsepower, 5.8-liter V-8 engine that shoots it to 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.
Though the competition is not necessarily extensive for this Japanese supercar, it certainly is stiff, so Nissan had better keep checking its rearview or one of them is bound to pass it up.
