2021 Porsche 911 vs. Its Competition

2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S Coupe Angular Front Exterior View
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Porsche 911 combines amazing performance with everyday drivability, which makes it more of a complete package than most of its competitors.

The new BMW 8-Series aims more at comfort but provides plenty of performance, especially in its big-output spec.

Chevrolet’s Corvette isn’t as refined as the Porsche and it carries itself with more bravado, but it offers track-ready handling and a decent ride on the street for less money.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG GT lacks the tiny rear seat and has a front-engine layout, but it’s a thrilling car to drive and a worthy competitor.

The Audi R8 sings a sonorous V-10 tune, but it isn’t the performance bargain that the 911 is.

Finally, the Jaguar F-Type is absolutely beautiful, but it doesn’t have the performance pedigree of its rivals.
