Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M850 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). The BMW M850 is somewhat more expensive than 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 M850 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M850 is much wider than the Porsche 911, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW M850, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 911.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M850 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

Handling
The BMW M850 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 M850 has a much more powerful engine than the Porsche 911. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M850 and the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The BMW M850 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
