I think the $55,000 CorbaR will beat a NIX on a track. A Z06 Corvette, BMW M3, and Viper GAS also will run with a NIX. Personally I would pick the new M3. At $47k (not 100% sure of the price, but at least 90% sure)it is a bargain. The M3 is an all out performance car that doubles as a German luxury coupe.
As for comparing the Mustang CT to a GAR. I think it is fair. Honda people always brag about performance to anyone that buys anything different. The only performance that matters to me is how fast it will go on a road course. A stock Mustang CT in most cases will be faster then a stock GSR. A Type-R will stay close because of its great handling and even beat it on a tight course, but it cost 3k more then a GT. I'm sure 3k would buy you the handling to match the Type-R. Fords CobraR parts bin would be a great place to start. You can argue we are comparing a 4-cylinder to 8-cylinder until you are blue in the face. It is just a way of denying defeat. I used to always make that argument when I lost to Corvette or 911 Turbo. There are many ways to build a sports car. Which is right? (High-RPM low displacement, Medium RPM-Large Displacement, or Forced Induction? FWD, RWD, or AWD?) I can't say. I just try to look at things from the other guys point of view. I do believe that RWD and 6 or more cylinders is a good place to start building a sports car though.
