Comparison Review

Convenience
With the Porsche 911 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Nissan LEAF, 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 Nissan LEAF 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 Nissan LEAF carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Porsche 911.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan LEAF is much slimmer than the Porsche 911, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the Nissan LEAF takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Porsche 911.

Handling
The Nissan LEAF has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche 911, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan LEAF is significantly less powerful than the Porsche 911. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The Nissan LEAF has much less torque than the Porsche 911, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Utility
The Nissan LEAF 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 Nissan LEAF is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Porsche 911.
