2014 Porsche 911 vs. 2014 BMW 428 Review

Comparison Review


Convenience
The BMW 428 requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Porsche 911, making it more convenient to drive.

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 BMW 428, 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 and the BMW 428 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Porsche 911 is a little wider than the BMW 428, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. The Porsche 911 is slightly shorter than the BMW 428, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Porsche 911 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 428.

Handling
The Porsche 911 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 428, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche 911 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 428. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Porsche 911 and the BMW 428. The Porsche 911 has less cargo capacity than the BMW 428, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Porsche 911 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 428.
