2018 Porsche 911 vs. 2018 Audi R8

Porsche and Audi are two car brands that everyone desires to own, but only a few fortunate people have the luxury and pleasure of owning it. If you are one of them looking to choose between the 2018 Porsche 911 and the 2018 Audi R8, this comparison would help you in making a decision.

Design & Style

The exterior finishing is quite posh for both the models, but the interiors tell a different story. The 2018 Audi R8 is a 2-seater with an elegantly designed interior featuring top-notch materials. The overall aesthetic appeal is quite beautiful with a blend of performance and luxury. However, the cargo space is not sufficient enough to accommodate even a moderately sized item. The 2018 Porsche 911 is a winner in this aspect with plenty of space to be content with, thanks to folding rear seats. The 4-seater vehicle has adequate legroom and headroom, while the cabin is beautifully designed with even trim pieces exuding elegance.

Technology & Safety

Technology-wise, the 2018 Audi R8 features an MMI infotainment system with voice control and navigation. It also includes Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, Audi’s virtual cockpit satellite radio and a Bang & Olufsen audio system. Even with responsive MMI system and sharp graphics, there’s an absence of a secondary screen that can be easily seen by the passenger. The standard safety features are just about average.

The 2018 Porsche 911 comes standard with the Porsche Communication Management infotainment system featuring smartphone integration capabilities, USB port, voice command recognition, Wi-Fi hotspot, Apple CarPlay, HD Radio, and satellite radio.  The infotainment system has plenty of useful functions and it’s easier to operate.  Some of the available safety features include park assist, rearview camera, speed limit indicator, and adaptive cruise control.


Talking about performance, the Audi R8 delivers enough acceleration and power with its V10 engine cranking a top speed of up to 199 mph. With the Porsche 911, you have a range of options with a power output ranging from 370 to 450 HP. If you are considering the 911 Turbo or 911 GT3, you are occupying a high-performance vehicle.

The Bottom Line

Both the models are quite a good choice for the price you pay, but the 2018 Porsche 911 is a step ahead with exceptional handling and superior performance. Getting behind the wheels of an Audi is a matter of pride, but for Porsche, it’s a matter of self-satisfaction and pleasure. Their attention to detail in all aspects makes you feel great about the vehicle.
