Ask Imagine: Porsche 911 Convertible vs Aston Martin Convertible Rental

Dear Imagine Lifestyles,

I am a fan and a reader of your blog, I enjoy your stories and information.  I will be visiting Miami in a few weeks, and I am having a difficult time deciding between the Porsche 911 convertible rental and an Aston Martin convertible rental.  What model do you suggest for Miami?  Any tips would be appreciated, I just plan to drive throughout the city and explore.

Thanks again,
Mike, North Carolina


Hello Mike,

Thanks for following our website and luxury blog, we appreciate all of our fans and work hard to provide new material daily.

As for your upcomImagine Lifestyles Luxury Rentals ing trip here to Miami, that is awesome.  We can understand your indecision between the Aston Martin rental and the Porsche 911 rental, as both are truly awesome and luxurious cars.  It may be most beneficial to you for us to go over some details of each.

The 911 convertible rental features a 3.6-liter six-cylinder engine.  The Sport Chrono Package Turbo offers and over-boost function to raise torque from 460 to 505 pounds per foot at the touch of a button.   This extra power is derived from twin turbochargers with variable turbine geometry.

Capable of hitting the 0-60 mark in about 3.8 seconds, this is definitely a fun car to drive.  There is no worry about the soft-top convertible function; it drops in 20 seconds flat with the touch of a button.  It is one of the easiest to operate.  There is a wind deflector and an optional lightweight hardtop in case you require it.

The interior is lush, with a cozy cockpit designed with the driver in mind.  The Porsche 911 features automatic climate control, HomeLink system, on-board computer, and a 12-speaker Bose surround-sound system to enhance your luxury car rental experience.  Overall, it is an exciting car to rent in Miami. 

Now let’s take a look at our Aston Martin rentals.  We have two Aston Convertible rentals to choose from- the Aston Martin Vantage and the Aston DB9 Volante.  These models are slightly higher to rent than the Porsche 911, but you definitely get what you pay for in the world of exotic cars. 

The Aston Martin Vantage Roadster boasts a handbuilt 4.7-liter V8 engine that puts out 420 horsepower-catapulting it from 0-60 in 4.8 seconds.   To complement the power beneath the hood, this is another breathtaking example of a classic Aston Martin.   Yes, there is just something special about an Aston Martin.  This roadster is more compact, and in our opinion, easier for tourists to navigate on unfamiliar roads.  This makes it the ideal luxury rental car in our opinion.  So if you are a fan of the Porsche 911 convertible, the V8 Vantage convertible may be a better choice if you are taking a vacation.

There is also the option of our Aston Martin DB9 Volante convertible.  This Aston convertible rental is the convertible version of the Aston Martin DB9.  The hardtop roof on this exotic is completely hassle-free, dropping in 17 seconds at the push of a button.

The DB9 Volante rental features a 5.9-liter V12 engine capable of pushing it from 0-60 in about 4.7 seconds.   Yes, Aston is a powerful brand, and an ideal luxury rental car for Miami, New York, Chicago and LA. 

We hope this information will help you decide which luxury car rental will suite you best for your pending visit to Miami!

Thanks again Mike, we are looking forward to setting you up with the exotic rental car of your dreams.
