The Aston Martin Vantage range offers similar performance to many sports cars, but with its unique looks, exclusive name, and relatively high price tag, it's almost in a niche of its own.
Porsche's 911 is a more practical, but also more pedestrian alternative, despite offering even better sports car performance and far better gas mileage.
At this end of the market, the choice comes down to personal taste more than any definining performance or equipment characteristic.
