Two very bad engineering decisions, one has a rear engine placement, the other has a live axle rear suspension. Terrible cars. :) Only joking, I love both. The Porsche has better materials and paint, but costs too much in my opinion. In any case both cars handle very well, for skilled drivers, on race tracks and back roads.
