2016 Porsche 911 vs. 2016 BMW 640 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the BMW 640 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Porsche 911, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 640, 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 640.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche 911 is much slimmer than the BMW 640, 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 640.

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

Handling
The Porsche 911 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 640, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche 911 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 640. 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 640. The Porsche 911 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 640, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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