BMW M4 vs Porsche 911 Carrera | evo TRACK BATTLE

The BMW M3 coupe has morphed into the new M4, and with its closest rivals from Audi and Mercedes now very long in the tooth, we went seeking a rival from further up the food chain. Can the M4 do itself proud on Anglesey circuit against a proper sports car, the Porsche 911 Carrera?

  1. M4 can carry four people and luggage. Different concept.

  2. So much driver error

  3. this is basic 911 or s model ?

  4. A M4 is for a 27 year old guy. A 911 for a 72.

  5. the "slowest" 911 vs the quickest bmw 4-series… thats embarassing! imaging how the Turbo (S) would rape the M4

  6. the "M4" should be compared against the carrera S.

  7. I love the bmw m4 four seater rocket don’t know any other luxury auto that would come close to the m4.

  8. BMW makes good performance cars but let’s face it people.. Porsche is in its own class.. I love Porsche.. Can’t wait to own one

  9. the porsche is so ugly

  10. I do have to laugh at everyone’s comments. Everyone has an opinion and everyone is a fan boy (of the car they like including myself). I love BMWs but they are two different cars. Porsche are quite unique in that they are built the way they are. A 3er or 4er is a sporty saloon (very sporty in M guise). What is always funny to me is how the M cars are always compared to more bespoke ‘desirable’ performance cars. A hard top Z4 would probably be a closer chassis size and balance match to the Porsche.

  11. 911’s are sports cars. M4 is a GT car. 🙂 One is balanced. The other was designed for cruising and straight line speed. Then there’s aerodynamics. Porsche comes out on top. NO KIDDING!! 🙂 Less HP or not. 🙂

  12. Check Out our Bmw M3 F80 Videos with a lot of nice modifications for extra Power 😉

  13. Sometimes i can’t help but wonder what a set of really good track tires like the Trofeo R’s would do on the BMW. Actually it would be nice to see both vehicle fitted with the same exact rubber.

  14. I was a surprised to find the 911 smoother on the imperfect roads of New York compared to the M4.

  15. Two absolutely great cars from two great companies. But let’s be honest, PORCHE is just superior !

  16. I bought my 2011 E92 a year ago. I also testdrove 3 different 911:s. My problem on those was the power. With the 68keur I paid for the E92, a same priced Porsche was much slower or at least it felt like that. I only track my car once a year but I do need the back space. So after testdriving (and sitting in the backseats) I could only choose the E92. Porsches are fantastic cars but as a daily driver a nogo for me.

  17. m4 ist viel schneller. video ist gekauft.

  18. Base German skill angry dining will gravity

  19. go with a Corvette and you will be fine 😉

  20. So interesting hearing pros talk about these cars; love the way they break it all down. Fascinating insight.

  21. M4 is not designed to be an all out track car. It’s a powerful badazz car you can drive everyday, in town or on a 10 hr road trip. N it was only 1.4 sec behind the porsche on the track. Are you buying one to drive on a track everyday? Hell no. both are great cars, but the M4 is my choice. All these youtube comments about this car sucks or this car blah blah blah. shows how immature and childish, not to mention spoiled, most people are. haha people used to travel by horse n buggy, be thankful for all the great automobiles we have available to us n pick you favorite flavor and move on.

  22. SO AS LONG AS YOUR IN A M4 AND THE GUY IN THE 911 IS NOT A PROFESSIONAL RACE CAR DRIVER….YOU MOST LIKE GOING TO DUST EM??? LIKE A SECOND BEHING… THATS COMES DOWN TO YOUR PERSONAL SKILL IN A RACE VS SOMEONE ELSE. GREAT VIDEO! BUT I ALWAYS TELL PEOPLE WHO THINK THEIR CAR IS THE BEST… ITS NOT THE CAR! IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THE DRIVER AND THE TRACK. WHAT ABOUT THE DRAG RACE?

  23. You get what you pay.

  24. Man the 991.1 911 looks ancient now that my eyes are used to the 991.2.

  25. it’s amazing that on these tests, Porsche send underpowered cars and wins majority of the times and usually with grace. both cars are fantastic imo

  26. Even a base model 911 is still far superior. That’s how good Porsche is at making cars.

  27. I find it much easier to modulate the rear end by setting the throttle response to just sport. Putting the throttle response in sport+ makes the car way too loose when exiting the corner. I think this might have made a difference to the result.

  28. You’re comparing a base 90k car with a base 65k car.

  29. M4 anyday

  30. M4 ‘s stock tires are shit if it had some proper tires it would be very close to a base Carrera. M4 also running 275 rear stock which you could easily move up to 295 , tire alone makes huge difference

  31. Porsche……there is no substitute

  32. generally bmw >> porsche

  33. Pointless.

  34. Hands down one of the best reviews I’ve watched, explains with details and doesn’t speak about which car looks better to impress 20y old chicks

  35. The 911 is about 600 lbs lighter.. Makes more of a difference than the the power. Not surprised by the result. You should mention that in the video.

  36. m4 ist viel schneller. video ist gekauft.

  37. My dad has a Cayman s and a bmw m4 convertible, here’s my take on this, and I know that it’s a Cayman s but to a non car person it’s the same. The Porsche is more fun to ride in and much more rough, but the bmw m4 with the top off is much showier, we have it in red. Overall for me personally I like the Porsches ride but the bmws looks

  38. Prosche frog is for viagra consumers 60 years old guys. Bmw for young fuckers. Porsche sucks

  39. As a Porsche owner I’ll even admit I think you guys kinda cheated. That’s not a ‘Bog Standard’ Carrera. It looks like it’s got the lowered, sport suspension which comes with PASM, and it definitely has 19" wheels. Also, you don’t comment if the M4 has the ‘Adaptive’ M Suspension and, from the way it rolls – I’m not sure it does. Also, what tires and how many miles do they have on them? Let’s play fair now, Ok? Also, the M3 has now made both the E63 and C63 irrelevant.

  40. Great Cars! BUT- I will go with the BMW.

  41. And the price comparison? I would go for the Porsche if they are at the same price but no the M4 is 2/3 of its price if not less (Australia)

  42. As expected. Porsche have a knack of punching above their weight. There is no substitute as they say.

  43. Porsche all day

  44. Fascinating that a car with forced induction is more responsive than a naturally aspirated car. Also great to hear info on transmissions. Porsche asks a hefty premium for the PDK whereas BMW has it as a no-cost option, yet BMW (ZF) has a better trans.

  45. i keep coming back to this video. that 911 is specced superbly

  46. Crazy that the Speciale is 5 secs faster than a M4 on such a short circuit

  47. Seems weird to put an M against a base 911 Carrera. Would it not make more sense to compare the GT3?
