Design & Style

Stylish as the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera is, you may wonder what else it can offer apart from its beautiful exterior. This rear-wheel-drive coupe oozes with appeal with the inclusion of a great-looking body. Inside it, you will love that it also has plenty of headroom and legroom. Of course, you cannot deny that the materials quality has been carefully considered by its maker. The driving position is excellent for this car as well.

As for the 2018 Audi R8, you will appreciate its sleek design as well. Note that it has been gifted with an exceptionally modern cabin that provides the comfort you are looking for. It struggled a bit when it comes to the small amount of legroom that it has been gifted with.

Technology & Safety

In terms of technology, you will also note that the touchscreen display in the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera provides the modernity that has already been proven by its infotainment system, all in all. The eight-speaker system produces great sounds perfect for a sports car as well. Driver aids included adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and pedestrian detection – all of which are indeed needed for a sports car like the 911.

Inside the 2018 Audi R8, you cannot help but appreciate the presence of a dependable MMI infotainment system. This gives this ride a boost in terms of technology features. The rotary dial for smartphone integration is questionable as well. The carmaker could have made things better using a touchscreen technology instead. Safety aids are also optional for this car.


Travel freely down the road without those bothering noises that can be disturbing when you ride the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera. This has a flat-six, 3.0-liter engine yielding results of up to as much as 370 horsepower and 331lb-ft of torque for this car.
