Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger will cost more in transportation costs than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
Since the Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 911.

Handling
The Dodge Challenger 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 Dodge Challenger is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche 911.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Dodge Challenger does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

Utility
The Dodge Challenger offers greater seating capacity than the Porsche 911, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Dodge Challenger is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche 911.
