2021 Porsche Cayman vs. 2021 Nissan GT-R

Dominating the world of luxury sports cars, what is there to expect in the 2021 Porsche Cayman? First, there are powerful engines waiting its buyers. It also has that excellent handling capability that makes the ride worth it. Comfortable seats await those of its would-be passengers.

For the 2021 Nissan GT-R, it boasts of a rocketlike acceleration. It also has that surefooted handling that you are looking for. Track and 50th Anniversary editions were dropped down the list of models.

Design & Style

That comfortable seating arrangement makes the Cayman a truly enticing buy for car purchasers out there. The ride carries two people, but both will find the cabin roomy enough for that weekend getaway. Taller occupants will never complain of body pain with the generous setup. Solidly constructed on the outside, the interior is lavish in all aspects, making it a deserving luxury car in the top spot.

For the 2021 Nissan GT-R, the setup of the two-door coupe is not really impressive all throughout. The front seats are comfortable to carry the pilot and his passenger, but the rear seats are best left to smaller adults. It comes standard with leather upholstery and leather-wrapped steering wheel but the feel and look is not as upscale as the Cayman.

Technology & Safety

With reliable technologies in its Porsche Communication Management infotainment system, you will never go wrong choosing the 2021 Porsche Cayman. Inside this setup are features like the Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay, eight speakers, satellite radio, two USB ports, and HD radio. These are fitted in a seven-inch touch screen which quickly responds to user inputs. The ride is also blessed to have safety features like the rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, and other available driver aids.

For the Nissan GT-R, the ride has an eight-inch touch screen which has a simply menu layout. Buttons for the audio and climate controls are also available on display. Despite the effort, the graphics display looks plain, boring, and dated. There are no available advanced driver aids for the ride. All you get are front and rear parking sensors, and the rearview camera.


The Porsche Cayman’s powertrains start with the base engine that can aspirate up to 300 horsepower. Other trim levels have engines that can generate up to 350 to 400 horsepower. Meanwhile, there are two engine options as well. One is a twin-turbo V6 that yields 565 horsepower and the other an upgraded engine that holds 600 horsepower. Throttle response is slower because of these engines.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche Cayman has a solid body, elegant interior, and upgradable features that you can enjoy. It also has the right engines to suit your needs, fast to respond when you step on the brakes. These make it better than the 2021 Nissan GT-R.
