Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche 911 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Honda Civic Type R, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Honda Civic Type R 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 Honda Civic Type R carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic Type R is a little wider than the Porsche 911, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic Type R takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche 911.

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

Performance
The Honda Civic Type R has less horsepower than the Porsche 911, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the Honda Civic Type R doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche 911.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic Type R and the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic Type R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche 911.
