But they don't. Almost every car has the same sort of model interior that they follow, but apart from that, these are worlds apart...

complaints

These are 2 makes I have serious complaints over.

Ok, porsches are extremely expensive cars, given the fact they don't exactly offer gigantic engine sizes for options and have absolutely ZERO luxury amenities or options. Why do some porsches cost up to 100 grand if it doesn't provide either of those? For the name? Ok, I can see that with a ferrari, (which is another one that doesn't offer any options) but at least that doesn't look like a buick skyhawk on the interior. I do understand that many luxury features add weight to the car which is not idealistic for a sports car, but jeez, offer something more for the money? A bigger engine size at least?


Second is audi. This is probably the worst of the two. At least porsches have very sporty, performance potential reputation which is what makes it cost so much, but audi? I was car shopping about 2 weeks ago and the audi a4 cabriolet is the crappiest car I've EVER seen. It costs 37,000+ msrp and that is without ANY luxury amenities. It doesn't even give leatherETTE seats! It comes standard with FABRIC seats! NOT ONE luxury feature period. The worst part? It has a TINY 1.8 liter engine with hardly any power. And like I said, unlike the porsche, audi isn't exactly a make that has a long glorious reputation of sportiness and performance to sell itself on. BIGGEST over-priced piece of junk ever!

Ok now in regards to the photos, doesn't audi or volkswagen rather own porsche?


Sorry I had to rant :\

No, Porsche just bought 25% of VW a couple months ago. VW owns Audi and many others. Porsche helped in VW's starting out with the Beetle...which was designed and planned-out or rather 'created' by Porsche.

Now to your Porsche cost vs...engine size rant. The '06 911 Turbo costs around a 100 grand with a 3.6L Boxer twin-turbo with 480hp. 0-60 time is what...3.7-3.8 seconds? Top speed is what...193mp/h or 308-9km/h? Add to that a damn amazingly refined and well-mannered chassis...And you've got yourself a blazing fast car with a 6.

Lastly, where'd you get the lack of 'luxurious amenities' in a 100 grand priced Porsche from? Look at the 911 Turbo's features at the Porsche website...
