Comparison Review

Convenience
The BMW 430 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 BMW 430 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 BMW 430 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
The BMW 430 is about the same width as the Porsche 911. If you go with the BMW 430, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 911.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 430 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche 911.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 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 BMW 430 and the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The BMW 430 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
