Unfair competition? Perhaps, although as you can see in the video we made of the comparison test, the German supercar proves more than capable of holding its own in some areas.
Porsche 911 versus full-blown single-seater is one of many intriguing face-off videos we've produced, pitching high-performance road cars against a smörgåsbord of rivals, including racing bikes, track-day specials – and even the humble Dacia Duster. Here's a selection of the most popular.
1. Ariel Atom V8 versus Citroën DS3 rally car versus BMW HP4 Superbike
We pitch Ariel's ultimate track day toy against Citroën's 600bhp DS3 rallycross car, as well as a BMW superbike. While on paper the bike may look like the weak link in this test, it's got 193bhp and weighs just 169kg. Which will win this ultimate drag race?
2. Nissan GT-R versus Ducati 1098S
In another bike versus car face-off, Ducati's 150bhp, 180kg 1098S superbike takes on the 473bhp Nissan GT-R around Cadwell Park. Which can set the best lap time?
3. Nissan GT-R versus Formula 3 racing car
This time, the Nissan GT-R has to try to hold off a Formula Three racing car. The F3 car has 220bhp, 550kg and rear-wheel drive, but can it outpace the four-wheel drive GT-R?
