Serving North Olmsted, OH
When it comes to driving fast and furious on the road, few cars live up to a standard of excellent performance and a sleek exterior design. The 2019 Porsche 911 and the Lexus LC 500 are top competitors that have solid track records as sports cars. If you want to decide which one comes out ahead, there are a few features to evaluate between both models.
The 2019 Porsche 911 is equipped with a punchier engine and can reach 62 mph in 3.5 seconds. The 6-Cyl 4.0 Liter engine is lively and doesn’t hesitate to respond quickly to commands but still feels controlled. It shows off what it’s capable of with a loud growl that overpowers other engines each time that the car is revved. The handling is also superb and allows you to feel like you’re gliding on different types of roads or highways. An updated all-wheel-drive system and improved aerodynamics make the car faster and more versatile.
A standard V8 engine delivers plenty of power in the Lexus LC 500 and has handling that is agile. The 5.0-liter V8 engine delivers 471 horsepower and comes standard with rear-wheel drive. Although the vehicle drives like a sports car, the brakes don’t have sufficient braking power and affect the quality of the ride. The throttle pedal also doesn’t compare to the one available in the Porsche 911 and could be improved with its design.
It’s easy to recognize that the 2019 Porsche 911 has an updated exterior that is boxier and squared off than its predecessor. The headlights have been revised and the channel is more pronounced in the bonnet. The rear of the vehicle is intimidating and impressive with a light signature that spans across the back and replaces the light cluster that has commonly been used on previous models. Black accents are used on the double-pipe sports exhaust and on the number plate, which adds a touch of contrast and creates a sporty design.
Few cars are as edgy and daring as the Lexus LC 500 due to its futuristic body and styling. The car has a long hood, an oversized black grille, and lights with unique shapes. Although the car is successful at looking unique, the styling may be too bold and flashy for some drivers. The two-door LC 500 mimics the silhouette of a Corvette and has chrome exhausts that are present on the rear of the body. Sharp edges and lines are abundant, meaning that a lot is going on with the look of the vehicle.
Inside of the new Porsche 911, drivers will be surprised to find a larger interior that feels more spacious. Gloss black panels are present and create an elegant design that is upscale. The steering wheel has also been redesigned with new buttons that control the dash displays and infotainment system. Due to the lack of buttons that are present on the dashboard, a minimal design is created, which looks clean and seamless.
The Lexus LC 500 feels cramped compared to the spacious interior of the 911 and doesn’t offer a lot of hip- or legroom in the front and back seats. Fortunately, premium and upscale materials are used to create a handsome aesthetic that has a high level of appeal. Although the front seats are supportive, the back seats are tight and make it difficult for adult passengers to ride comfortably. The cargo space is also limited compared to the amount of room that is provided in the new Porsche 911.
