Porsche 911 wins hands down. It will be even sweeter if it has a "Mezger" engine.

 

Why would the rental pricing be so different?

 

Audi R8 (V8) doesn't justify the $800 a day price tag when compared to the Porsche 911.

Compared to pricing actually available here, I guess that's not that expensive, but still too rich for my taste especially since there's not a whole lot you can do with the car in a day in any scenario here...

$500 a day for a Porker is quite a good rate.

But $800 a day for an Audi R8 seems ex.

Understand from the viewpoint that Audi R8 and Lamborghini Gallardo shares the same platform, but then...

Thanks for your feedback. The R8 is more expensive after taking into consideration the costs, mainly maintenance costs.

It will depend on the insurance coverage. But I believe that most companies which rent out these kinds of cars will not cover Malaysia.

Starting new luxury car rental business?

I wouldn't mind renting lower end JDM sports cars, MR-S, MX-5, DC5R, maybe an Elise as well, but of course, not at those prices. That said, I know the demand for the cars I'd want to rent are lower than for a semi-exotic / luxury sports car.

 

$500 for the 911 sounds about right, if it includes insurance and all. I don't think I'm willing to splash $800 for an R8, unless maybe for a super exciting weekend.

Yes I'm willing to rent a 997 for $500 nett a day, inclusive of insurance coverage.

R8, not for me.

Will you also consider renting the GTR?
