Subaru Outback Wagon 2.5i (2014) vs Porsche 918 Spyder (2015): 36 facts in comparison

1. Has dual-clutch transmission

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.

7. more horsepower

Horsepower is the most common unit for measuring the power of an engine.
170hp
Hennessey Venom GT (2014): 1244hp
887hp

8. Has a turbocharged engine

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.
