IMHO, The Porsche is more practical as a daily driver, having more cargo capacity and a 2+2 configuration that makes it possible to carry two adults or a couple kids in the back.
With the right tires, I would take the 911 over the R8 in winter as well.
And why not pick the one that is not only faster but handles better? who cares if you never take it to the track.
