One of the most intoxicating cars I ever owned. Owned a lot, but bought one because it had so much SOUL!!!!!
Handling Ranked 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD better.
"It’s a a Porsche 911......👍 Didn’t buy the Vanquish to beat the 911s track times, bought it because it raised the hair on my entire body every time I drove it!"
Looks/Style Ranked 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD worse.
"Umm..... have to ever looked at one next to a 911???? Sorry Dr Porsche....no comparison!"
Front Seats Ranked 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD worse.
"English over the top leather , styling and accents... Porsche good, better than some... but no comparison to the Vanquish"
Back Seats Ranked 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD better.
"Just a bit more room for the little ones is all.... big ones not an option... buy a RR if you need 4 real seats!"
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD worse.
"Just a bit better trunk space on Vanquish"
Family Car Ranked 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD better.
"Again, a bit more room for kids, and long trip reliability better too....All wheel drive safer too!"
Value Ranked 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD better.
"Simply long term car that is holding its value incredibly....while Vanquish lost over half its cost"
Would Buy Ranked 2007 Porsche 911 Turbo AWD better.
