The all-new BMW i8 and the Porsche 911 Carrera S go head to head. However, there is more than just a drag race here in this video.

In the video above, you will see multiple specs mentioned, a how-to on activating launch control, as well as brief compare/contrast of both vehicles.

As mentioned, both vehicles are somewhat similar, yet wildly different.

The i8 has ~20 miles (NEDC) of range on pure electric, while the 911 Carrera S has a higher top speed and stronger acceleration.

Check out the video to see how the i8 and 911 stack up.  We're certain you'll enjoy the action shots and commentary throughout.
