The 2021 Porsche 911 is a legend on wheels. It’s astounding speed and acceleration, array of interior amenities and deep customization makes it too much for the competition. But how does it stack up against the 2021 Aston Martin Vantage, a legendary British automobile that is incredibly fast, built with a reinforced and aerodynamic chassis and offers limitless luxury?
Design & Style
The Aston Martin Vantage has a killer appearance. It looks best in the Spirit Silver color with the roof painted in red. It sits on twenty inch alloy wheels with a grille that is vaned. It is long and sleek with curves that are so elegant and refined. Inside the cabin passengers will be treated to soothing seats and gear selectors which are clear and structured in the shape of a pyramid. The vent metallic trim looks amazing as does the infotainment system. The newest Porsche 911 shares many design similarities with its predecessors. However, its hips have been widened and its fenders are rounder. The LED lights look great, as does the haunches and alloy wheels. Inside, passengers will be presented with plenty of space, comfortable seats and touchscreens which are 10.9 inches in size.
Technology & Safety
The Porsche 911 incorporates state of the art technology, such as pedestrian detection, lane control that is active, emergency automated brakes, night vision, and a camera with surround view. It also has stability systems which will ensure the car stays on the road at all times, even during inclement weather. Luxuries within its cabin include heated/cooled seats, Apple CarPlay, sound system with eight speakers, keyless start and climate control. Safety countermeasures which can be found in the Aston Martin Vantage include parking sensors, blind area monitoring and driver assist. Luxuries within its cabin include heated/cooled seats that can be power adjusted sixteen ways, climate control, Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, and an LCD cluster gauge that is twelve inches in size.
The Aston Martin is obscenely powerful. It is equipped with a V8, 4 liter engine that can generate 503 horsepower with 505 pounds of torque, which enables it to accelerate from zero to sixty in just 3.7 seconds. Those that purchase the Porsche 911 turbo get 640 horsepower that enables it to blaze from zero to sixty in just 2.7 seconds.
The Bottom Line
Both of these cars carry a six figure price tag and are as hot as a volcano. However, the Aston Martin has a weaker transmission and performance; some have described its cabin as being a bit claustrophobic, and the innards used to direct airflow is comprised of plastic, which is absolutely unacceptable for a car of this caliber, making the Porsche 911 the winner.
