2022 Porsche 911 vs. 2021 Audi R8

Twin-turbo flat-six engines, and other transcendent driving traits define the new 2022 Porsche 911. This makes it flawless in terms of its built and other capacities. It is athletic, and has a lavishly designed and roomy interior. You definitely won’t ask for more.

As for the 2021 Audi R8, you will definitely be thrilled with its engine choices. As usual, it promises that you will have that opulent cabin that these rides have been blessed with. You also have the option to purchase one with the rear-wheel drive configuration.

Design & Style

The interior of the 2022 edition of the Porsche 911 has a lot of updates in terms of design, the most notable of which is the inclusion of a large center cupholder. It also carries digital gauge clusters to deviate from the usual analog instruments found in the dash. The ride is comfortable as it is opulent. It has supportive front seats, plus the driver can make adjustments via the steering wheel. There is enough to sit four in the sports car.

When compared to the newly innovated edition of 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

There are a lot of things to expect in the 911 when it comes to technology and safety. Now it carries the wireless Apple CarPlay, though it still uses the wired version for the Android Auto. There is a Wi-Fi hot spot too, plus you have a choice between the one carrying the 12-speaker Bose audio, or the 13-speaker Burmester setup. Adding to its great list of features is a 10.9-inch sitting on the middle of the dashboard. For safety, you get to enjoy automated emergency braking, forward collision warning, night vision, blind-spot monitoring, and automatic high-beams.

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 for the basic trim are the rearview camera, and the front and rear parking sensors.


All Porsche 911 models carry the twin-turbo flat-six-cylinder, 3.0-liter engine which can result in 379 horsepower for the base Carrera, 443 horsepower for the S variant, and 473 horsepower for the GTS model. The 2021 Audi R8, on the other hand, carries with it a V10 engine for the base variant which can reach up to a maximum of 532 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

There are many things to look forward to when it comes to the 2022 Porsche 911. It has elevated its looks when compared to its predecessor and oozes with a lot of great details that luxury sports car aficionados will love. It defeats the 2021 Audi R8, in most, if not all aspects compared above.
