2018 Aston Martin DB11 vs. Its Competition

2018 Aston Martin DB11 Volante
Kirk Bell Kirk Bell Senior Editor

Priced around $200,000 to start, the Aston Martin DB11 is in heady company.

Porsche's 911 Turbo S can reach that stratosphere, and it certainly is more ready for track duty, though it isn’t nearly as beautiful.

The Ferrari Portofino replaces the California and promises more performance and even more exclusivity.

Bentley's Continental GT is the most direct competitor.

It’s old and is about to be replaced with the new car that promises similar gains in performance and comfort.

The Mercedes S-Class Coupe is far more focused on luxury and offers much more space, but it, too, can run up the bill.

The Maserati GranTurismo is another beautiful GT car from a small manufacturer, but it doesn’t have the cachet of the DB11.

The 2018 Mercedes-Benz continues to push the envelope for comfort. safety, and autonomous driving aids, while improving upon its effortless power and dignified road manners.
7.6
The 2018 Porsche 911 is a superlative sports car that has defied its age. It’s a classic, but performs better than nearly any newcomer to its arena.
6.8
Reduced to just the convertible and the W-12, the 2018 Bentley Continental GT is still elegant, fast, and fashionable.
The 2017 Ferrari California T embraces a more luxurious lifestyle, but can peel away the road as well as any $200,000 sportscar should.
