If you’re considering the 2018 Audi TT or 2018 BMW M4, we encourage you to take a closer look at another of the sporty coupe/roader segment’s top models: Porsche 718. Offered in 718 Cayman (coupe) and 718 Boxster (convertible) configurations, this two-seater is powerful, fast, and surprisingly cost-effective. Compared to the Audi TT and BMW M4, it shines in terms of speed, efficiency, and available features. We’re confident drivers from San Jose to Alameda will appreciate the rip-roaring speed of the Porsche 718, as well as its safety-minded and tech-savvy feature set. Look below to see how the 718 stacks up against the Audi TT and BMW M4!

In the power, luxury, and safety categories, all three competitors prove themselves worthy. However, the Porsche 718 stands alone in some respects. Compared to the Audi TT, the Porsche 718 is not only more powerful, it also offers enticing add-ons like a ceramic brake system, memory-adjustable front seats, and a heating steering wheel—none of which are available on the TT. Although the BMW M4 generates greater engine figures, it can’t live up to the Porsche 718 Coupe and Convertible’s mpg ratings or top speed of 170 mph. Simply put, the Porsche 718 balances power and efficiency for a ride that’s truly unforgettable.
