2021 Porsche 911 vs. 2021 BMW 8-Series

The 2021 Porsche 911 is ranked as one of the best luxury sports cars. It boasts of a potent engine lineup and a modern-looking interior. This sporty ride has a promising set of intuitive features as well. Expect the return of the Targa and the debut of the Turbo S trim for this model.

The 2021 BMW 8-Series is one ride that impresses in this category too. It is praised for having a large trunk and a refined cabin.

Design & Style

The 2021 Porsche 911 seats up to four people in its amazingly large cabin. It has well-cushioned and bolstered seats up front. There is an abundance of legroom and headroom as well. This makes taller passengers appreciate the ride even more. You will find great outward visibility too, if you are the driver. Trimmed with the best quality materials, expect a stylish cabin that has that refined definition to it. It is sporty, yet it remains modern all throughout.

Boasting a large cargo space inside, many would be lured by the promises made by the 2021 BMW 8-Series. This one comes in two variations. One is the four-door series that can seat up to five people, and the other is a two-door version that accommodates four. Front seats are comfortable for the ride, but the back seats are not so impressive. Headroom is tighter because of its sloping roofline. It lacks the opulence of its competitors in terms of interior styling, the 911 included.

Technology & Safety

Inside the 2021 version of the Porsche 911 is a user-friendly infotainment system. It is outfitted with a 10.9-inch touch screen that is praised for easily responding to user inputs. It also has straightforward menus, and displays slick graphics. It is also equipped with Apple CarPlay. Among its safety aids are a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, and forward collision warning. It also has front and rear parking sensors.

The 8-Series, on the other hand, is gifted with the iDrive infotainment system. This takes time getting used to, most especially because there is a rotary knob added to its center console. It is given a 10.25-inch touch screen, two USB ports, Wi-Fi hot spot, and navigation system. Safety wise, it has only a few which include forward collision warning, rain-sensing windshield, and rearview camera.

Performance

The 2021 Porsche 911 gives you four engine choices. One is in the Carrera and is able to generate up to 379 horsepower. The highest engine variation is found in the Turbo S. This one generates up to 640 horsepower. As for the BMW 8-Series, the highest rating it goes is 523 horsepower. This does not accelerate swiftly when you step on the breaks.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche 911 is your ultimate definition of a luxury sports car. It has a solid exterior and interior, and is gifted with the right technologies to boost your spirits down the road. Those powerful engines make it even outlast that of the 8-Series.
