In the latest episode of Smoking Tire, host Matt Farah pits the BMW 1M against the Porsche Cayman R. The Porsche Cayman R is the final hurrah for the current generation of Cayman and with 330 horsepower, the Cayman R offers marginally less power than the 1M (340 hp), but to overcome the power difference, it weighs less: 1,408 kgs vs 1,536 for 1M.

The rear-wheel Cayman is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.4 liter six-cylinder engine.

The mid-engine placement helps the Porsche sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.8 seconds, slightly slower than the 1M and its 4.6 seconds. But the Porsche makes up the difference and more from 0 to 124 mph: 16.4 seconds vs. 17.8 seconds for 1M.

Comparison: Porsche Cayman R vs. BMW 1M

The 1M is powered by the N4 twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter I-6 engine. For the 1M, the turbocharger, exhaust system, and ECU have been revised to produce 335 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque, though up to 369 pound-feet are available temporarily in overboost mode.

So which one gets the vote up?

    When i speak of BMW being a people Manufacture, this is what I’m referring to. BMW has always being a “User Friendly” car, that’s why people buy them.

          The slowest Audi is a Volkswagen.

      BMW has always been a loser car, and that’s why some losers buy them. When BMW sees Audi, they start to tremble from fear.

        Look “Mike”, what knowledge you and Johnny and Daniel have about cars?. When i make a claim that Audi “Can NOT and will NOT” be as close to BMW in most category of the motorsport, this is what i mean! and please be advised that the Driver of the Audi is “HIGHLY EXPERIENCE”. This is how a review is done with “VIVID EVIDENCE” to you AUDI FOOL’S
