There’s no performance-oriented luxury vehicle quite like a Porsche. Unless, of course, the vehicle in question is the Ultimate Driving Machine, better known as BMW. If you’ve been around the block in Normal more than a few times — and we do mean literally — then chances are you’re already well-aware of the prestige and recognition that driving a BMW or Porsche carries. But despite similar reputations for making quality performance vehicles — and despite similar 4-year/50,000-mile new vehicle limited warranties with 24/7 Roadside Assistance coverage — these brands do differ pretty significantly once you start comparing them at length.

Want to see how these differences make themselves manifest on your favorite Decatur streets? Read on to compare BMW vs. Porsche cars and SAVs, then contact us to schedule a test-drive or simply browse our new BMW inventory online!
