Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M4 as you will with the Porsche 911, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 M4 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 M4 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
The BMW M4 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 BMW M4, which is slightly longer than the Porsche 911.

Handling
The BMW M4 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 BMW M4 is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche 911.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW M4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M4 and the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The BMW M4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
