Can the BMW M4 CS challenge the Porsche 911 GTS? Given Porsche’s esteemed heritage, that’s certainly a tall task. So let’s see if the BMW M4 can match up to Porsche’s 911 in a head-to-head challenge measuring up their sports car credentials.

BMW is most well-known for their luxury sedans. While many of BMW’s luxury cars offer excellent performance for the luxury class, they’ve generally received tepid reception from sports car enthusiasts. With the 2018 M4 CS, BMW is looking to eliminate the gap with dedicated sports coupes.

Unfortunately, the 2018 M4 CS falls a bit short of the Porsche 911 GTS. The GTS is simply able to get around the track more quickly and remains easier to handle. However, BMW does close the gap with a lighter, more nimble, and quicker M4 CS. While BMW hasn’t quite caught up with the high bar set by Porsche, the gap is closing.

The 2018 BMW M4 CS hits 60 miles per hour in just 3.9 seconds. This actually keeps up with the 911’s identical 0-60 time. However, the 911 is much more nimble and easy to handle on the road. When it comes to driving through twisting and winding roads, you’ll be able to maintain a higher safe speed with the Porsche.
