Porsche 911 Turbo S Vs. Ferrari California T

Some say that there’s nothing like driving a Ferrari. Those people are right. There’s nothing like being left in the dust by a lighter, smaller, more powerful supercar. The 2017 Ferrari California T is slower, less sharp in corners, and comes with a much higher price tag than the Porsche 911 Turbo S. If you’re looking to show off on Sunset Blvd., you buy the Ferrari, but if you really care about a superior driving experience, the Porsche 911 is the supercar that you want to have in your garage. Learn more about how the Porsche 911 Turbo S is the superior model to the Ferrari California T below, and then call the team at Beverly Hills Porsche to test-drive your next new supercar.

Porsche 911 Turbo S vs. Ferrari California T: Performance

Porsche 911 Turbo S

The 2017 Ferrari California T simply can’t measure up to the awesome power and acceleration that the new Porsche 911 Turbo S is capable of. Despite having two more cylinders in its engine than the 911 Turbo S, the new California T isn’t capable of generating the same level of power or acceleration as the Porsche. Key differences in performance specs between the two supercars include:

Porsche 911 Turbo S vs. Ferrari California T: Driving Experience

The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S was designed with the German brand’s founding concept in mind. Engineers in Stuttgart sought to design a small, lightweight sports car, which used power efficiently, and built it themselves, just like Ferry Porsche did when he designed the 356. While his 356 had a 35-HP four-cylinder engine, your 911 Turbo S is capable of a lot more.

Weighing in at only 3,527 lbs., the new Porsche 911 Turbo S is much lighter than the 2017 Ferrari California T and its curb weight of 3,813 lbs. The difference in weight means quicker acceleration, and better handling in the corners. In addition to the weight, there are several key features included with the new 911 Turbo S to maximize the overall driving experience.

  • Variable Turbine Geometry to adjust the level of boost provided by the turbocharger
  • Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus with rear differential lock for even greater stability
  • Porsche Active Aerodynamics including a multi-stage adjustable front spoiler and a rear spoiler
