Ferrari vs Porsche : Whats your pick?
A Simple poll, thats not specific to any car but more to the brand. Or line of cars.
Which brand do you prefer between the two?
- Ferrari for its passion and panache. Every Ferrari is special, and everyone knows it. The charisma (and exhaust note) of a Ferrari is unmatched. Isnt that what supercars are for? But the compromise of unreliability and impracticality.
- Porsche for its precision engineering and reliability. But the compromise in the flamboyance and "wow" factor. A Porsche wont be gasping in bumper to bumper traffic and will serve as a dependable tool for years to come. I remember a regular gumballer saying that he can drive a Porsche at "200+ all day" while a Ferrari would break down in half the time.

To me Porsche is more drivable -Practical. Hence voted for Porsche.
PS- I have even seen a 911 in Bangalore daylight city traffic.

Like you have already mentioned - if I had to buy a sportscar that would also be used as an everyday car, and would be my only one, I would surely go for the Porsche for its reliability.
However, if I had an option of having a sportscar purely as a luxury option for those one-off weekend flings, nothing beats a Ferrari (or a lambo).

Ferrari - since Lambo is not in the picture here.
The only Porsche that would make me think twice ..

Well considering their Technical & Engineering prowess it's Porsche over Ferrari for me anyday. My personal opinion is that Ferrari is more of a poser's tool whereas the Porsche is for serious drivers.

A ferrari is anything but a poser's tool. Agreed a porsche is a sportscar that can be used daily but it can only be as good as ferrari on track not better, minus all the passion.
Who say's ferrari's cant be used as everyday car's, a prime example is the new F430.
