2013 Aston Martin Vantage vs. Its Competition

2013 Aston Martin V12 Vantage Roadster
Nelson Ireson Nelson Ireson Senior Editor

The Maserati GranTurismo closely matches the V8 Vantage's performance, and has its own, Italian flair for style.

Ferrari's California is also very close in performance figures, with Italian style, but a slightly more in-your-face look than the Vantage.

Porsche's 911 is more practical, with (small) rear seats and more cargo area, but without the somewhat exotic status of the Aston or other brands.

Still a tremendous value, the 2013 Porsche 911 range offers a great balance between dedicated sports car handling and daily practicality.
