Comparison Review

Convenience
The Audi A5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Porsche 911, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Audi A5 is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche 911. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A5 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
The Audi A5 is about the same width as the Porsche 911. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A5, which is slightly longer than the Porsche 911.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Audi A5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche 911.

Handling
The Audi A5 has a larger turning radius than the Porsche 911, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi A5 is significantly less powerful than the Porsche 911. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A5 and the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The Audi A5 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
