Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Ford Mustang 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 Ford Mustang 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 Ford Mustang carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 911.

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

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

Performance
The Ford Mustang has less horsepower than the Porsche 911, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Ford Mustang 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 Ford Mustang and the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Ford Mustang is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche 911.
