The new 911 is faster than any plain Carrera S to come before it. Now Tiff Needel at Evo Magazine wants to know if the Porsche can finally beat its supercar-killing rival — the recently-updated 2012 Nissan GT-R.

Tiff unsurprisingly prefers the manual, naturally-aspirated, rear-wheel-drive Porsche, but it's still nowhere near fast enough to beat the turbo'd Nissan around Bedford Autodrome.

Now we just have to wait for the next GT3 to come out and we can start the dance all over again.
