Porsche vs Ferrari1



Many people might argue that the Ferrari 360 Modena is a better car then the Porsche 911
Turbo. Through the years the engineers from both Porsche and Ferrari have excelled a great
deal. However, the engineers at Porsche have done a better job in many ways that Ferrari
can’t. If you look at the statistics they are about equal but when you look at the
technology, the body, and the engine you will see that the Porsche will overcome the
Ferrari.


“Look at those huge knockers! The way that they sleek back and form a nice hump and then
go back down.” That’s what could be said about the new Porsche. Through the years Porsche
has designed a car that most people love. They have done many things to improve the
performance, comfort, and style. But one thing remains that no other car company can
honestly say about their cars. The Porsche engineers have done a great job at keeping the
body design almost exactly the same. The reason why so many people buy the car is because
the body itself has been the same for about fifty years and going. While Ferrari can say
that their designs are better, they can’t say that they have found a design to last for
fifty years. They have to keep on changing their design because their bodies get boring
and when cars get boring, people stop buying.


Secondly, the Interior of the Porsche isn’t like a Mercedes but it still has its little
toys that you can play with when you get bored of speed. Integrated with the new Porsche
stereo is a GPS system that can guide you from any place in Canada with just a push of a
couple buttons. Also the Porsche has added a new six CD-changer in the trunk of the car
and a new premium grade stereo and speakers from Blaubunkt. Comfort wise, two people can
sit comfortably in the front but you couldn’t even fit an average size person in the back
seat. Another good little option you can get is the all-wheel drive running system, which
keeps the power hooked to the ground. On the other hand, the Ferrari is total opposite of
the Porsche. While it does have a radio it doesn’t have a GPS and it doesn’t even have a
CD player. All the Ferrari has is an outdated tape player. Also the Modena just has the
plain old rear placed engine that gives you a lot of kick but little stability around
corners. It doesn’t even have all-wheel drive. Another downfall of the car is that it only
seats two people. While the Porsche is said to fit four it can really hold two, but still,
it should at least have four spots in the car.


Finally, there's just one mental question you need to win before you blow two hundred
grand on a Porsche 911 Turbo: "Do I really need enough horsepower to peel back my eyelids.
The newest Porsche Turbo is the fastest, most desirable car they've ever put on the
street. The Turbo hammers out 415

That task alone is extremely complex and involved, but the brain also has many other tasks.
