The 2021 Cadillac CT6 is a regal automobile which does an outstanding job of merging luxury with performance. Its smooth handling, array of tech and powerful V8 engine make it a force to be reckoned with. But can it beat the 2021 Porsche 718, a sports car which many consider a masterpiece due to its sleek transmission, gorgeous design and awe inspiring power?
Design & Style
The Porsche 718 is a real attention grabber. Although it is inspired by the 911 in many ways, it still retains its own distinct flair. It has a broad nose with triangular shaped headlights and sculpted body lines. The air intakes are prominent and designed to cool its engines which are mid-mounted. Within the cabin passengers will be presented with a large central control that has buttons which are readily accessible and designed to handle multiple functions. The Cadillac CT6 is defined by an extensive hood with long, elegant lines. Its exterior is angular and sharp, with a presence that commands respect. Vertical headlights can be seen in front and inside the cabin the leather seats feel soothing and every surface is covered in premium materials.
Technology & Safety
The Cadillac CT6 is outfitted with all sorts of safety tech, such as blind area monitoring, alerts for cross traffic in the rear, emergency automatic brakes and cameras which face the driver to monitor their attention. It has enough luxuries to rival a five star resort, including heated and powered seats, dual USB ports, ten inch touchscreens and a phone charger that is wireless. The Porsche 718 has all the safety features found in the CT6, including parking assist, cruise control, emergency automatic brakes and blind area monitoring. Luxuries within its cabin include seven inch touchscreens, satellite radio, leather upholstery, heated seats, mirrors that dim automatically, two zone climate control and Apple CarPlay.
Performance is what the Porsche 718 was made for, and few cars on Earth can match it. It comes with an engine that can generate 350 horsepower with 309 pounds of torque, which allows it to cruise from zero to sixty in just 4.9 seconds. Those that want far greater power can upgrade to the GTS or Spyder variants. The Cadillac CT6 comes with a V6, 3.6 liter engine that can generate 335 horsepower.
The Bottom Line
The Cadillac CT6 and Porsche 718 are both world class cars. However, the Porsche 718 has a distinct performance edge, especially if one upgrades to the higher trims, and the front seats in the CT6 leave a lot to be desired, making the Porsche 718 the winner.
