Both score 46 out of 60 pts., what makes the difference?

The BMW 135i shows as much potential as the Porsche Cayman when it comes to accerlation, braking etc ...

But both have different characters, the BMW 135i is not as sporty as the Cayman S as you can see at the hanling track and the Hockenheim short track, when it comes to driving dynamics the 135 cannot beat the Cayman.

Not sure why they even compared the two... :dunno:

Crazy for sure. A Porsche buyer is not going to go "wow a BMW 1er".

More craziness....Autobild compares with 911.


"A Porsche loves curves, the BMW masters it. That is the difference!"


"The BMW is a mad car and also still many more favorable. But does not drive like a Porsche."
