German engineering strikes back at the long standing top of the food chain contender that is Ferrari with its powerhouse, the 911 Turbo S up against the rivaling Portofino. At first glance you may see the price tag and think there is now way Porsche could compete with the Portofino, but from the research done it seems as though the Ferrari isn’t delivering the value you may expect from that price tag. In terms of power, the Ferrari does a tiny bit better, but the Porsche is faster at a top speed of 205MPH compared to 200MPH on the Portofino. The 911 can also accelerate 0-60 in 2.8 seconds while the Portofino reaches 60 in 3.5 seconds. An added bonus on the 911 Turbo is the All-Wheel drivetrain and rear axle steering making it easier to corner and park!
In terms of bang for your buck, the 911 Turbo gets better fuel economy at 19MPG/24MPG while the Portofino gets 16MPG/22MPG and you get some more leg and headroom in the 911 compared to the Portofino. Both models are extremely sleek and very design forward and have incredible drive and power.
