The Audi TT RS Just Crushed Its Porsche Cousin In A Sound Battle

Exhaust

We seriously don't understand the appeal of the 718 anymore.

The Audi TT RS just keeps getting better and better. We called the TT RS a "Baby-Lamborghini" and even predicted that it could be better than its corporate cousin from Porsche, the 718 Cayman S. US pricing has not been announced for the TT RS, but both cars will be expected to be within a few thousand dollars of each other at around $66,000. The TT RS comes with a 2.5-liter five-cylinder turbo engine with 400 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. The 718 Cayman has a 2.5-liter flat-four turbo engine which produces 350 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque.

Even though the Porsche seems down on paper, the two cars are very evenly matched in performance. However, when measuring how good each one sounds, the TT RS starts to show its supremacy. We heard how good the Audi sounds last week, and now it has been compared to the Porsche.

Porsche caught some flack for downsizing the Cayman's engine to a four-cylinder, and now it is showing why more cylinders is almost always better. The TT RS sounds much better than the Cayman, and we think that it may be the better car as well. There are some other factors that may make people pick the Porsche, but sound certainly isn't one of them.
