2014 Porsche 911 vs. 2013 BMW M3 Review

Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche 911 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M3, due to its larger tank size and better 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 M3, 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 M3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche 911 is much wider than the BMW M3, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Porsche 911 is slightly shorter than the BMW M3, 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 M3.

Handling
The Porsche 911 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW M3, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche 911 is somewhat more powerful than the BMW M3.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Porsche 911 and the BMW M3. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Porsche 911 as you will in the BMW M3.

Warranty
The Porsche 911 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M3.
