2015 Porsche 911 vs. 2014 Lexus IS 350C 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 Lexus IS 350C, 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 Lexus IS 350C.

Dimensions
Since the Porsche 911 is much wider than the Lexus IS 350C, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Porsche 911 is slightly shorter than the Lexus IS 350C, 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 Lexus IS 350C.

Handling
The Porsche 911 has a larger turning radius than the Lexus IS 350C, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche 911 has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus IS 350C. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.
