2015 BMW 640 vs. 2015 Porsche 911 Review

Comparison Review

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the BMW 640 is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche 911. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW 640 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 640 is much wider than the Porsche 911, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 640, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 911.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 640 and the Porsche 911 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 640 has a larger turning radius than the Porsche 911, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 640 is significantly less powerful than the Porsche 911. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 640 and the Porsche 911. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 640 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The BMW 640 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
