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.

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

Powertrain
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.

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.
