2021 Porsche 911 Turbo vs. 2021 Audi RS7

The 2021 Audi RS7 is an aggressive looking car that offers magnificent performance and the hatchback variant gives it added versatility. But is it good enough to beat the 2021 Porsche 911, an iconic car which manifests every hallmark of masterful design, from its aerodynamic body to lightning fast acceleration and speed?

Design & Style

Whether you purchase it in the form of a coupe or cabriolet, the Porsche 911 Turbo is a great looking car. Passengers within the cabin will be treated to powered and ventilated seats that can be adjusted 18 different ways and an infotainment system that is accessible via 11 inch high resolution screens. Every surface in the cabin is covered in high end material, from supple leather to carbon fiber and wooden trim.

The Audi RS7 has a wide frame with four doors and a backseat that is quite spacious. The body work in the latest variant is aggressive and reflects its incredible speed, especially with the 4 wheel steering, all-wheel drive and air suspension which is fully adjustable. The body sits on elegant twenty two inch wheels and the Black Optics edition in particular looks fabulous.

Technology & Safety

Audi takes the safety of its vehicles seriously, and the RS7 does an outstanding job of protecting its passengers. It accomplishes this through blind area monitoring, multiple airbags, cruise control which is adaptive and a camera with 360 degree view. Amenities within its cabin include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, dual touchscreens, leather seats, climate control and a cargo area that provides up to forty nine cubic feet worth of space when the back seats are folded.

The Porsche 911 matches the Audi RS7 when it comes to driver assistance.  It too has blind area monitoring, numerous airbags and cruise control that are adaptive, along with automated emergency brakes, lane management and night vision. Amenities within its cabin include satellite radio, Wi-Fi, the choice of a Bose or Burmester sound system and digital gauges.

Performance

The Porsche 911 Turbo is so fast that it is perfectly capable of competing in professional racing tournaments….and winning them. Those that acquire the Turbo S variant will get a flat six, 3.7 liter engine that is dual turbocharged and capable of cranking out 640 horsepower, enabling it to blast from zero to sixty in an amazing 2.2 seconds. The Audi RS7 answers with a V8, 4 liter dual turbo engine that is paired with a forty eight volt hybrid unit that can generate the equivalent of 591 horsepower that enables it to accelerate from zero to sixty in 3 seconds.

The Bottom Line

While the Audi RS7 is good, the Porsche 911 Turbo is better. Aside from the 911’s superior acceleration time, the Audi RS7 has been criticized for its clunky infotainment system, which makes the Porsche the winner.
