2019 Porsche 911 vs. Its Competition

2019 Porsche 911
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Porsche 911 may be a better complete package than its competitors at being an “everyday supercar.” The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT borrows liberally from the 911’s playbook—except for the rear engine—and is a thrilling drive.

The BMW 8-Series is new and aimed as a long-range comfortable cruiser.

The Chevy Corvette is nearing its end as the all-American sports car and it’s much more brash than the Porsche.

The Audi R8 offers a sonorous V-10 engine planted mid-ships, but it’s also very conservative.

The Jaguar F-Type is achingly gorgeous, but relatively aged among its competitors.
