They’re both insanely expensive and ridiculously fast. At the same time the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabrio and Aston Martin V12 Vantage S Roadster are very different cars. Aside from having folding roofs, both have different size engines in different places. The 911 Turbo, as we all know, is famously rear-engined and powered by a twin-turbo flat-six. The V12 Vantage S has its engine up front, and the name says everything you need to know regarding said engine. Without question these are two of the fastest and most powerful convertibles on the market.
We’re referring to the Aston’s 565 horsepower verses the Porsche’s 552-hp. Neither is exactly a lightweight. So which one would you choose to drive home? In case you can’t decide, Autocar is here with its latest comparison test video to help you do so.
