Porsche 911 Cabrio vs Audi R8 Spyder twin test video

Published: 18 April 2012

We pitted the new Porsche 991-spec 911 Carrera S Cabriolet against the Audi R8 V8 Spyder in the new May 2012 issue of CAR Magazine. And we’ve bolted together a quick video from our thrash around Wales to whet your appetite for the full story in print.

Can the 911 match the flair of the R8? Can either car justify price tags knocking on the door of £100,000? And just how good do convertible sports cars have to be to dodge the ‘hairdresser’s car’ epithet down the pub?

Chris Chilton argues all of this, and more, in a gripping nine-page story in the new May 2012 issue.

Don’t miss the moment when he gets the 911 Carrera S airborne in our video above. And click here for a digital, page-turning preview of CAR Magazine.
