City & Highway MPG

While the 2018 Audi R8 offers stronger engine options, the 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera lineup allows you to cruise Livermore’s roadways for longer on less fuel. Available in two trims, V10 and V10 Plus, the 2018 Audi R8 achieves just 14 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway across the lineup. The base 2018 Porsche 911 Carrera, however, earns city and highway mpg ratings to suit your needs, and it never fails to exhilarate when you hit the gas.

  • With the standard 7-speed manual transmission, the 911 Carrera earns 20 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
  • With the optional 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung transmission (PDK), those fuel economy ratings expand to a 22 mpg city/30 mpg highway.

Available Safety Systems

You’d expect nothing less than reliable safety systems from sports coupes—and the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 Carrera deliver. Both models come equipped with features like high-performance brakes, strategically placed airbags, traction and stability control, a rearview camera, and parking sensors. Surprisingly, driver assists are unavailable for the 2018 Audi R8 Coupe. In pleasant contrast, any of the 911 Carrera Coupes and Cabriolets can be equipped with:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
  • Porsche Active Safe (included with ACC)
  • Lane Change Assist
