2019 Audi R8 vs. 2019 Porsche Carrera 911

This era of car competition is focused on defining what it means to be a supercar. With the range of advancements for car technology, it is almost impossible to visualize this goal and still remain at an affordable price range.

The latest 2019 Audi R8 and 2019 Porsche Carrera 911, however, seems to defy the norms. Aside from the promise of a thrilling performance, both cars maintain a livable price point. These luxurious rides are more than just a car but rather a representation of today's buying market.

Design & Style

On the outside of the 2019 Audi R8, there are sharper bumpers and larger exhaust pipes. The latest model also has a slightly edgier nose. Inside, the cabin is spacious but still has that intimate air. There are beautifully wrought details that make you focus on the quality of its execution.

The 2019 Porsche Carrera 911 has a redesigned front section that features black air blades as well as LED headlights. For its interior, the cabin layout is updated with new instrumentation.

Technology & Safety

The latest R8 is technologically advanced with its 12.3-inch digital display that is equipped with the MMI technology. This serves as the brain of both the audio and navigation systems and has innovative handwriting-recognition to control everything. It also comes standard with the latest driver aids that were developed by Audi for their latest redesigns.

The infotainment system of the 2019 Porsche Carrera 911 is a combination of advanced innovations and luxury. It also has features that assure a safe ride for the driver and the passengers.


The driving performance of the new Audi R8 is crisper and edgier than the previous models. The 5.2-liter V-10 engine easily produces 532 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. The ABS and driveline traction control keeps the car firmly on the road. The suspension and steering were also tweaked in order to be more stable and easier to handle. The electronic stability control significantly enhanced the braking performance of the R8.

Compared to the Audi R8, the Porsche Carrera 911 only has a 3.8 liter twin turbo 6-cylinder engine that can deliver 540 hp and 486 lb-ft of torque. It gives a quiet ride with slick gearbox shifts. It progresses well and stays calm during acceleration but noticeably snaps with sudden inputs.

The Bottom Line

All in all, both cars deliver as expected. They look great with their respective facelifts and they truly are like supercars in terms of the technology being injected. But between the two, the consistency of Audi to produce reliable cars is evident on the 2019 Audi R8. The speed and potency feel more special because of the V-10 engine.
