2016 BMW M6 vs. 2016 Porsche 911 Review

Comparison Review

The Porsche 911 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M6, making it more convenient to drive.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW M6 will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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 M6 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche 911.

Since the BMW M6 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 M6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 911.

Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M6 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

The BMW M6 has a larger turning radius than the Porsche 911, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M6 has a much more powerful engine than the Porsche 911. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M6 and the Porsche 911. The BMW M6 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Porsche 911.

The BMW M6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
