2018 Porsche 911 Compare


2018 BMW M3 Yellow


2018 Porsche 911 vs. 2018 BMW M3

Choosing between the 2018 Porsche 911 and the 2018 BMW M3 isn’t too hard, with even a cursory examination revealing BMW weak points that the Porsche steps in to solve. To save you the hassle, we’ve conducted a competitive comparison to show how these two luxury thoroughbreds compare.

Power and Efficiency

The new 911 provides a diverse array of power options from the following cutting-edge engines:

  • 3.0L Twin-Turbo Flat-Six: Makes up to 370 hp and 331 lb-ft of torque as standard, up to 420 hp and 368 lb-ft of torque in S models, or up to 450 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque with GTS models.

  • 3.8L Twin-Turbo Flat-Six: Pushes power up to 540 hp and 486 lb-ft of torque, or up to 580 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque with S models.

  • 4.0L Flat-Six: Makes up to 500 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque.

The BMW M3 doesn’t value your freedom of choice, with only a single 3.0L inline-6 engine across all trims providing up to 425 hp. The M3 just doesn’t offer as much power as the 911, and you’ll lack a more efficient alternative. As such, expect up to just 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. The Porsche 911 can make up to 22 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway.

2018 Porsche 911 Rear


Both the 2018 Porsche 911 and the BMW M3 present a strong range of features and fittings, but the BMW falls behind in terms of connectivity by failing to offer the following technologies:

  • Built-in LTE module with Sim Card Slot: Provides a fast and reliable connection to the internet for multiple devices at once.

  • Apple CarPlay: Promotes convenient integration with your compatible iPhone.

2018 Porsche 911 Technology


The 2018 Porsche 911 might deliver unbridled performance, but that doesn’t mean safety technology has been neglected. On the contrary, there are several protection features present you won’t find in the BMW M3, including:

  • Porsche Dynamic Light System: Detects the lights of vehicle ahead, then adapts the headlight range to provide faultless forward visibility.

  • Porsche Torque Vectoring (PTV): Stability is optimized by intelligently braking the rear wheels around the current situation. You’ll notice greater agility and more precise turns, so driving enjoyment is boosted alongside safety.
