The Porsche 911 Turbo S and the Audi R8 V10 Plus may be distant cousins, but there’s no mistaking that the two everyday supercars regard each other as the other’s biggest rival. On the technical side, both the 911 and the R8 V10 have their advantages. The R8 V10, for instance, has more power at its disposal with 602 horsepower on tap. The 911 Turbo S, on the other hand, isn’t quite there at “just” 552 horsepower.

But if this comp is based this strictly on output, then what’s the point of continuing, right? The truth is that picking between the 911 Turbo S and the R8 V10 Plus is like picking between two equally potent exotics. You really can’t go wrong with either one, but in case you’re struggling to make a choice, the latest episode of Evo’s “Deadly Rivals” series should give you a clearer idea on what both cars have to offer.

Evo road test editor Dan Prosser takes the helm on this episode and put both the 911 Turbo S and the R8 V10 on a gruelling test run. Both left impressionable marks on the Prosser, resulting in what can only be described as a dead heat comparison. If you want something that’s a little more refined, the 911 Turbo S can fill that void. But if you’re looking for something that’s a little edgier to drive, the R8 V10 Plus is as good a supercar as any to get you where you need to go.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
