2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet VS 2014 Audi R8 Spyder

2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet VS 2014 Audi R8 Spyder

Both the 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera S Cabriolet (991) and the 2014 Audi R8 Spyder are great drivers cars. The R8 is a mid-engined all-wheel drive car that has very good acceleration and now has perhaps the best dual clutch transmission that money can buy. The 911 has a rear engined rear-wheel drive layout that provides a different experience than any other sports car.

While both cars are great, the 991 is the more modern car as it was brand new last year where the Audi is more of a slight update. The Porsche has less horsepower, but more torque and the bigger thing is it weighs 400 pounds less. Either car is fun to drive, but the Carrera S is just a bit more fun thanks to its nimbleness.

This video pits the two German sports cars head to head to see which one is the better on the road and track. It tests all the performance stats on a track and then takes them to some great mountain roads for a road test. Both cars are good, but which is the better car to own?
