Chris Harris GT-R Track Pack vs 911 Turbo S track test [Video]
British racer and journalist Chris Harris took the Nissan GT-R Track Pack and Porsche 911 Turbo S out on the race track and gave a serious test of each to see which car would come out on top. The cars are two of the fastest and most extreme versions of the road cars offered by each car maker. Even though the track was a bit wet on the day Harris took the pair out for the test, he was able to make some fast runs around the track with each car.
Harris makes some good points about each car and gives us a good idea of what each car is about. Although the 2013 Nissan GT-R he drove was the Track Pack model which is currently offered in the UK and Japan, with modifications, it can be even made to go faster. The 911 model, was the latest version of the high-performance Turbo S that was first launched in 2011.
The Nissan GT-R Track Pack gets extras
We’ll give some details on each car starting with the 2013 Nissan GT-R Track Pack model. At the launch of the new 2013 GT-R, Nissan released information about a Track Pack model that would have some extra goodies designed to give the already fast car an “extra edge” on the race track. The car is currently only offered in the UK and Japan, and buyers in those countries can expect to pay an additional $15,600 to get the Track Pack package. That brings the total cost of the GT-R to $131,750.
