BMW vs. Porsche. Fans of fast, precise, powerful performance, get ready: the new BMW 6 Series packs upgrades and redesigns that pit it against the legendary Porsche 911. Each of the iconic automakers has earned diehard fans, thanks to their different approaches to sports-oriented vehicle. If you’re in the market for a new – and tremendously exhilarating – ride, see what the 6 Series has to offer.
The BMW 6 Series, of course, features luxury grand tourers. The newest addition to the line will be smaller and more agile. A true sports car that aims to go head-to-head with the 911. What do we know so far?
BMW joined forces with wildly popular Toyota to collaboratively create a sports car. They have been working on a shared car platform. Toyota puts a larger version of the platform under their Supra coupe, while BMW uses it for the Z4. The Z4 hasn’t been a big seller year-over-year so BMW is looking to expand the platform’s usefulness. It looks like the new 6 Series may fit the bill.
Experts predict the new BMW 6 Series will be larger than the Z4, and more comparably sized to the Porsche 911. This boosts the power capacity of the vehicle and will turn it into a real sports-enthusiast’s dream. We can expect the same elements of the “Ultimate Driving Machine” that we’ve come to know and love in other models – such as responsive handling, crisp brakes, an industry-leading infotainment system, inclusive safety features, and much more.
