The old-timer Porsche can still trump the upstart R8 in a couple of departments. Seats, for one. And economy - the six-speed manual 911 returns 26.2mpg and 254g/km of CO2 to the R8's 19.6mpg and 337g/km. But buying a supercar for its practical seats and economy is like ordering a lapdance because your legs are a bit chilly.
