2015 Porsche 911 vs. 2014 BMW 550 Gran Turismo 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). The Porsche 911 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, 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 BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Since the Porsche 911 is much slimmer than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Drivetrain
The Porsche 911 has much less torque than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Porsche 911 has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Porsche 911 has less horsepower than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, so it will probably be somewhat slower.
