Porsche 911 Turbo Vs Audi R8

The contenders

Audi R8 5.2 FSI V10 quattro S-tronic

List price £119,520
Target Price £115,400
All-new R8 looks relatively good value and has stupendous, high-revving engine.

Porsche 911 Turbo PDK

List price £127,630
Target Price £127,630
Now with even more power, the 911 Turbo is more devastatingly rapid than ever.

For decades the Porsche 911 has been the benchmark to which other sports cars aspired. However, there are now markedly different 911 versions, and the four-wheel-drive powerhouse that is the 911 Turbo could be worthy of super car status.
The 911’s petite 3.8-liter twin-turbo engine officially propels it from 0-62 mph in 3.0 sec. That’s half a second faster than the all-new R8. Even in its ‘cheapest’ form, the Audi now has a huge 5.2-liter V-10 engine, so the argument for calling it a super car is stronger than ever, too.
