The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Porsche 911, making it more convenient to drive.
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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.
Since the Porsche 911 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. The Porsche 911 is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which may make it easier to park.
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Porsche 911 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
The Porsche 911 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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