911 Carrera vs. R8: City & Highway MPG

While the 2020 Audi R8 offers stronger engine options, the 2019 Porsche 911 Carrera lineup allows you to cruise the Los Gatos roadways for longer on less fuel. Available in two trims, V10 and V10 Performance, the 2020 Audi R8 achieves just 13 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway across the lineup. The base 2019 Porsche 911 Carrera, however, earns city and highway mpg ratings to suit your needs and 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.
