The 2022 BMW M8 Grand Coupe is a visual masterpiece, with performance that easily places it in the super car category. But is it good enough to beat the 2022 Porsche 911 Turbo, an iconic car that is famous for its incredible performance, sky high price tag and remarkable opulence?
Design & Style
The Porsche 911 Turbo is sold in coupe or cabriolet form, both of which are prime examples of superb engineering. They each use a dual turbo engine and this combined with the all-wheel drive and dual clutch eight speed transmission makes it a joy to handle. Its newest features include improved infotainment, wireless Apple CarPlay, and a navigation system which is even more efficient than before.
The BMW M8 is distinctive for its extended wheelbase, lovely four door frame and dual turbo engine. Buyers have the option of all-wheel drive and its newest features this year include a horsepower boost, Track mode, M Sport style exhaust and carbon bucket based seats that feel wonderful to sit in. The chassis has also been revised for better performance.
Technology & Safety
The BMW M8 Grand Coupe is one of the safest automobiles in its class. It has all sorts of driver assistance gear, from emergency automated braking to frontal collision alerts, stop and go, lane management, blind area monitoring and cruise control which are adaptive. Amenities within its cabin include a Harmon/Kardon audio system with sixteen speakers, rotary controller, ten inch touch display, wifi and the choice of Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
The Porsche 911 Turbo is equipped with every safety function found in the beamer, including lane departure alerts, emergency automatic brakes, cruise control and night vision which allow drivers to identify people, animals and objects in the dark. Amenities within its cabin include wifi, satellite radio, and Burmester audio system with digitized gauge display that is completely reconfigurable.
The Porsche 911 Turbo is one of the fastest cars ever made. Those that want the absolute best will buy the Turbo S variant which provides a whopping 640 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in about 2.2 seconds. The BMW M8 Grand Coupe is powerful as well, and equipped with a V8, dual turbo 4.4 liter engine that can generate 617 horsepower with the ability to accelerate from zero to sixty in 2.7 seconds.
The Bottom Line
The BMW M8 Grand Coupe is good, very good, but its performance still lags behind the Porsche, and this combined with its disconnected steering feedback, unbalanced pedal feel and stiff driving experience makes the Porsche 911 Turbo the winner.
