2021 Porsche 911 vs. 2021 BMW 8-Series

The 2021 Porsche 911, just like the Porsche 718 Cayman, is considered one of the best luxury sports cars there is in this generation. It has that sporty vibe which resonates in its features. The Targa trim comes back, while the Turbo S trim debuts for this generation of the 911.

The 2021 BMW 8-Series is also one of the top luxury sports cars to consider among car buyers in New York. One of the things that you will look forward to is its large trunk space.

Design & Style

The 2021 Porsche 911 is made to seat up to four people comfortably in its well-cushioned and aptly-bolstered seats. The huge cabin gives passengers plenty of room to stretch in, even taller passengers will find entering and exiting the ride a breeze. Experience nice outward visibility for the ride too. It has an upscale interior made from premium quality materials, thus making it look and feel modern.

Just like the 911, the 2021 BMW 8-Series 2021 version also boasts of plenty of cargo space inside. It is available in two seating configurations – one is the four-door series which can accommodate up to five passengers, and there is the two-door version which drops the capacity to four. Front seats may be comfortable but it is an entirely different story at the back. Since there is a sloping roofline inside, it has a tighter headroom too. It is not as opulent as its Porsche counterpart.

Technology & Safety

One of the things that you will look forward to in the Porsche 911 is its user-friendly infotainment interface that uses a 10.9-inch touch screen. This easily responds to user inputs, and is equipped with straightforward menus. It also displays clear graphics. Equipped with Apple CarPlay, the ride has safety features like front and rear parking sensors, rearview camera, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking.

For the 2021 8-Series of the BMW, it uses a 10.25-inch touch screen display for its iDrive infotainment. This one is not as easy-to-use as that of the 911’s interface. This is all because of the rotary knob found on its center console. It has a navigation system, Wi-Fi hot spot, and two USB ports, plus for safety, it is equipped with a rearview camera, rain-sensing windshield, and forward collision warning.


The 2021 Porsche 911 starts with the Carrera engine that can generate up to 379 horsepower. The Turbo S trim is able to generate 640 horsepower. In the case of the BMW 8-Series, the highest rating it registers is 523 horsepower. The brakes produce odd noises when you step on them just to aspirate this number.

The Bottom Line

The 2021 Porsche 911 is more than just a rugged luxury sports car. It is powerful, handsome, and tech-rich. The 2021 BMW 8-Series lags behind it.
