General info

1.Has fully independent suspension
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
2.Has a petrol (gasoline) engine
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A petrol (gasoline) engine offers several advantages over diesel. For example the engines tend to be lighter and cheaper than their diesel counterparts. Petrol engines also tend to have higher horsepower, and the fuel is more readily available.
3.Has dual-clutch transmission
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is an automated manual transmission that allows the driver to control gear-shifts themselves or to let the computer decide. Upshifts are extremely fast, resulting in smooth acceleration, and due to the uninterrupted power flow it also has the benefit of increasing fuel efficiency.
4.Has rear-wheel drive
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.
5.CO2 emissions

291g/km

72g/km

The CO2 emissions of the car, measured in grams per kilometre. A car with less emissions is better for the environment.
6.Has four-wheel drive
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.

Dimensions

1.height

1.3m

1.17m

The height represents the vertical dimension of the product. We consider a smaller height better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.length

4.56m

4.65m

We consider a shorter length better because a compact chassis is generally easier to maneuver.
3.weight

1.43t

1.7t

We consider a lower weight better because lighter devices are more comfortable to carry. A lower weight is also an advantage for home appliances, as it makes transportation easier, and for many other types of products.
4.width

1.88m

1.66m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
5.wheelbase

2.45m

2.73m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
6.Has vertically-opening doors
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Vertically-opening doors are useful for when parking in tight spaces, and are aesthetically pleasing.

Speed

1.top speed

312km/h

344km/h

The fastest speed that the vehicle can reach.
2.acceleration time (0-100 km/h)

3.2s

2.5s

The time it takes for the car to accelerate from 0-100 kilometres per hour.
3.coefficient of drag

0.36Cd

0.36Cd

The coefficient of drag is one measurement of how well air travels around a vehicle. A lower value means it is more aerodynamic and the engine doesn't have to work as hard. It can result in faster speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Engine

1.maximum torque

470Nm

540Nm

Torque is a measurement of an engine’s power, closely related to horsepower. More torque indicates a more powerful vehicle and is also a good indication of its acceleration.
2.engine size

4l

4.6l

This measurement is the total volume of all the engine's cylinders, also known as the engine displacement. This is one of many aspects of an engine that determine its horsepower, but generally speaking a greater size indicates more power.
3.horsepower

520hp

887hp

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
4.number of cylinders

6

8

Although there are many aspects that determine the power, a higher number of cylinders is generally a good indication of the potential power of the engine.
5.Has Stop-Start system
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.
6.Has a turbocharged engine
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.

Features

1.Has in-car system
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
2.Has a rear-view camera
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
3.Has ISOFIX/LATCH
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
ISOFIX (also known as LATCH) is a standard system of attachment points for child safety seats, allowing them to be fitted quickly and safely.
4.Has smart key as standard
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
5.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2019)
Porsche 918 Spyder (2015)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
6.USB ports
