    Hey I love them both.<!-- Signature -->
     
  2. Only the current variants of the Porsche 911 have a better overall combination of Performance, Style, Status, Real world usefulness.


    911 Turbo, Ruf 996 Cabrio, 911 GT-2, Carrera GT rule.

    Let's see here, Porsche is a different class, no question about that. But even with that in mind, you can't say that Porsche is better than this car. Styling-wise, porsche looks good, but I love the new SL. Performance, only the 911-Turbo can top this car, all the other ones are slower, much slower. Luxury, comfort, safety, and class, no comparison, this Mercedes wins hands down.
     
  5. Hold on, wait a minute.

    Huh? Excuse me? Porsche is faster? I'd hate to argue with your "superior" intelligence about Porsches, but I have something to tell you. The Porsche 911 Turbo doesn’t have an electronic limiter, and that’s how its top speed can be achieved. When the Mercedes SL55’s electronic limiter is disabled, it can reach speeds in excess of 205 mph. After it achieves that speed, the tires would be stressed, and they might even blow out. So, if the tires were tough enough to carry a 4000-lb Mercedes, it might even go faster. Only the Porsche 911 GT2 would be able to defeat a V12, 476 hp SL55. Just wanted to let you know.
     
  6. Re: Porsche is still better.

    it's interesting how your "superior intelligence" has led you to believe that this beauty is a v12, when it is actually a supercharged v8. good one.

  8. Re: Porsche is still better.

    Oh, please forgive me. I don't hate Porsches, but I thought only a V12 Mercedes would be able to maul a Porsche 911 Turbo, but its actually a V8. Too bad it isn't a V12...it makes the 911 Turbo look worse.
     
  9. Re: Porsche is still better.

    I'm not going to choose sides on the cars either. I'd love to own both. I just wish that AMG would put manual transmissions in their cars. Thats one thing the Porsche has on this sex machine.<!-- Signature -->

    I wanna both too ! <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif"><!-- Signature -->
     
  11. Re: Porsche is still better.

    It's true that the SL55 can hit 208mph with the limiter turned off and with proper tires. But altho I am a Merc fan, I must admitt that Porsche has better handling. But that wouldn't matter, cuz it's not like someone will take the SL55 on a race track right? On the Autobahn (or so they call it), SL55 is the new King.
     
  12. Re: Porsche is still better.

    Yea Im gunna say it again. Mercedes is in a totally diffrent class... Its not like u can compare a Volvo With a Ferrari =). Same shit bro, same shit.

    Porche= sports car (not class,style and luxury, at least not as Mercedes)

    Mercedes: luxury,CLASS!, looks and technoligy (not ment as a #$%#ing sports car lol)

    And the Mercedes Sport cars= mix of class,luxury,style,looks and all of the other great shit =D. But not a "supersportcar"
     
  13. Re: Porsche is still better.

    Um. Six letters for you. CLK-GTR. This is just as much a sport car as that beast. If you try telling me that any car that has over 400 horses isn't a sport car, I will barf. Next thing I know you are going to try and convince me that a Toyota Tercel IS a sports car. Gosh, people really irritate me.<!-- Signature -->

  15. Re: Porsche is still better.

    hey don't lower Porsches stats please...... this thing can't compare sh*t with porsche
     
  16. Re: Porsche is still better.

    Porsche is way better guys... Cant beat that mid-engine sexy as hell Porsche 911 Turbo. The name just sends a shiver down your back. And not to mention it has a manual, something the Benz lacks.

    Porsche are not in the same categorie. But for a luxury sportcar, you have to admit this SL has awesome perf .
    And about the manual , the F1 have auto. So maybe a manual tranny is funnier but not necessarly better in perf. Merc have really good auto.<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: Hold on, wait a minute.

    Huh? A Porsche GT2 can't beat a SL 55! The GT2's top speed is only 195 mph. But with the limiter off, the SL could hit over 200 mph!
     
  19. Re: Porsche is still better.

    in my opinion, Porsche is the best German make and they're even cooler because they're the only one who doesn't speed limit their cars to 250kph.
     
  20. Re: Porsche is still better.

    mid engine??? No Rear engine. I like the merc, but i would take the porsche (mmm turbo) but it's just a matter of tast. If you compare such cars, ot's just youre personal taste that counts. They are both great. So please stop comparing.
     
  21. Re: Porsche is still better.

    Do you consider the Rolls Royce Phantom a sports car? I don't.
     
  22. Re: Porsche is still better.

    yes, mercedes is like a girl, it sucks dick
     
  23. Re: Porsche is still better.

    the clk-gtr is also worth over a million dollars. Im not gonna argue, i think its an insane car...but talk about something comparable. I hate how everyone backs up their arguments with the clk-gtr. im sure if u put that much money into any car, it would be just as sick.
     
  24. Re: Porsche is still better.

    sl 55 amg : very fast luxury car
    too bad it isn't manual
    GT2 : just a good supercar
    manual and i think it looks better than the SL
    and its probably more fun to drive a porsche than a merc.
     
  25. Re: Porsche is still better.

    I totaly agree with you. Its like comparing apples with peaches, one is just sweeter.(meaning the BENZ) Here you get speed,luxury,looks,the top-down and lots of power. But ask yourself this question? Which will get you laid faster the BENZ or the Porsche. ummmm!

    Its cool I'll take the super-model that loves me for my cars and money. LOL...
