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). The Porsche 911 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Audi S5, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Porsche 911 will cost more in transportation costs than the Audi S5.

The Porsche 911 is about the same width as the Audi S5. If you go with the Porsche 911, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Audi S5.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Porsche 911 and the Audi S5 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Porsche 911 has a smaller turning radius than the Audi S5, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
The Porsche 911 has less seating than the Audi S5, making the Audi S5 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Porsche 911 has significantly less cargo room than the Audi S5, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
