Everything is relative, no?

I will compare it to my 2006 Cayenne Turbo S:

(Click on my avatar for a picture of the two sitting next to each other)

Power: The perceptible difference is nearly undetectable. However, if you look at the stats, the 2011 Turbo is a bit quicker. (4.8 .vs 4.34). It is also about 300 pounds lighter, which I can feel noticeably

Handling: Hard to describe, but I have owned a 996 and a 997, and the 2006 .vs. the 2011 is a very similar feeling. The 2011 feels more like a giant 997, whereas my 2006 felt like a giant 996.

I looked at Range Rovers, and the Mercedes G65 AMG. I chose the Porsche for its handling, drive (just general feel), and features. (ACC, Bluetooth (finally!), native iPod support, rear entertainment, updated interior, etc.).

I believe cars are just like speakers. For me to tell you which is better is not very useful. Specs do not tell the whole story. Bose may sound great to one person, and terrible to another.

Drive it and buy what "feels" right for you.
