2021 Porsche 911 vs. 2021 Audi R8

The 2021 Porsche 911 is among those on the top ranks for luxury sports cars. It is praised for its great engine lineup as well as its handsome interior. It also carries with it a set of intuitive features. The batch also debuts the Turbo S trims, with the return of the Targa body style.

In the case of the 2021 Audi R8, you will find a luxury sports car with a thrilling engine that offers a comfy ride. It has a high-end interior, as well as user-friendly features too. A rear-wheel drive variant has been added to the model.

Design & Style

Seating up to four people, many of the sports car lovers out there will find the Porsche 911 a great deal. This one has well-cushioned and supportive front seats. It is even more likeable because it has plenty of legroom and headroom, thus making the ride even more comfortable. There is enough room to stretch in considering that this is a sports car. The cabin also offers great visibility. The interior is well-trimmed with high-end materials, proving that this ride is fresh and stylish at all levels.

When compared to the 911, the 2021 R8 can only accommodate up to two people. You will find the ride heavily-bolstered thus adding to its comfort. Questions on visibility can be experienced with this ride too, especially because of the presence of thick roof pillars inside. It also has a small cargo space.

Technology & Safety

Carrying a user-friendly infotainment system, the 2021 Porsche 911 is indeed one modern car that has been equipped with technologies that you will love. Its 10.9-inch touch screen easily responds to user inputs. Straightforward menus, and slick graphics will make you appreciate it even more. It is also equipped with Apple CarPlay. Safety wise, it has a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning. It also has front and rear parking sensors.

The R8 is packed with great features too, including a reliable 12.3-inch touch screen unit just found behind the steering wheel. This takes charge of functions for infotainment, navigation, and audio. All three knobs on the dashboard are within reach. Some finds the touch screen size quite a challenge considering that this car is not that big enough. It is so disappointing to find out that with its price range, the only advanced safety features part of the basic trim are the rearview camera, and the front and rear parking sensors.


The 2021 Porsche 911 has a total of four basic configurations, starting from the Carerra which produces up to 379 horsepower for its twin-turbo, 3.0-liter flat-six engine. Then it goes up to 640 horsepower for its Turbo S version. All configurations are worthy of the purchase. The 2021 Audi R8 carries with it a V10 engine for the base variant which can reach up to a maximum of 532 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

This comparison shows that the 2021 Porsche 911 is a better buy for those of you who are looking for aesthetics and power in a sporty car. You will love its tech features too more than you would appreciate what you will find in the R8.
