Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz S-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Porsche 911, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The Mercedes-Benz S-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz S-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is somewhat more powerful than the Porsche 911.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the Porsche 911.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
