Nissan GT-R vs Porsche 911 vs Jaguar XKR-S
Sometimes, a car is too lairy and scary. Sometimes, it's too comfy and boring. But sometimes, it's just right...

I'm surprised they haven't commented on the unusual front-end looks. The grille seems to have sprouted a thin moustache that droops sullenly either side. And it has a carbon front splitter - that'll be expensive when it nerfs into a sleeping policeman.
The Jag's still a lovely, voluptuous shape, and tracing its outline with your hand is an oddly sensual experience. Try it next time you see an XK, but maybe not if people are looking. Do the same to the GT-R, and you'll be making a lot of chopping movements. It's all angular and edgy. All of it except those strakes around the front running lights that look like someone picked up the original clay styling buck and forgot to smooth out the finger grip marks afterwards. The rest of it is architecturally brutalist.
