2018 Porsche 911 Turbo vs. 2019 BMW i8

The 2019 BMW i8 is an upcoming sports car that has caused excitement within the automobile industry. Its futuristic looks, incredible power and acceleration, and luxurious interior makes it highly anticipated. But how does it stack up against the Porsche 911 Turbo, a legendary vehicle known for its dynamite engine, blistering speed and assortment of powertrains?

Design & Style

The Porsche 911 Turbo has an iconic appearance which is similar to other Porsche models and previous editions. The tail lights in the rear have been altered a bit, and horizontal design elements have been added which makes the vehicle appear wider. The outer edges are curvy, and within the cabin, the dashboard is covered in upscale trim. A multifunctional screen is visible in the center that will be easy for drivers to access at all times. The BMW i8 has a design which is very much the opposite of the Porsche. Where the 911 Turbo opts for curves, the BMW i8 prefers sharp, sword-like edges. The doors open in the same manner as a Lamborghini and can be purchased with a roof that is fixed on or as a convertible. It will also use laser headlights.

Technology & Safety

The BMW i8 is designed with state of the art tech. Its construction is lightweight, yet it is durable and provides an array of safety countermeasures. It also consumes low amounts of energy when compared to most contemporary vehicles. It has lots of airbags, blind area monitoring, control systems for traction and stability, and emergency automatic brakes. Within the cabin, passengers can expect power adjusted seats, multi-zone climate control and high-resolution touchscreens. The Porsche 911 Turbo is well equipped with many safety features. It has side collision airbags which are designed to inflate up so that passengers are protected, along with doors that are reinforced, protection against rollovers, and control systems for stability and traction. Within the cabin, passengers will also be treated to touch screens which are 6.5 inches, an audio system with eight speakers, seats that can be power adjusted, Alcantara upholstery and Apple CarPlay.


The Porsche 911 Turbo has incredible performance that few competitors have been able to match. Its flat 6, 3.8-liter turbocharged engine can produce up to 580 horsepower, allowing it to accelerate from zero to sixty in about three seconds. The BMW i8 has a three-cylinder engine that can produce a maximum of 357 horsepower, allowing it to get to sixty miles per hour in about 4.4 seconds.

The Bottom Line

Both of these vehicles are gorgeous, fast, and incredibly advanced. Despite this, the Porsche blows the BMW i8 out of the water in terms of performance, so the 911 Turbo wins.
