OK aside from the Butterface looks of the Porsche, the Bimmer is more of a traditional sedan. The Porsche is a hatchback, and the trunk is tiny, which means you have to put the seats back if you want to put anything back there like golf clubs. You can't go anywhere far in the Porsche with backseat passengers because the seats are not made for comfort. The back seats force you to sit upright like you're getting ready to tackle the Nurburgring, where as the BMW is the normal configuration.
The Porsche is a better drivers car for sure and more sport than luxury, whereas the BMW is the other way around. Sure the 550ix is still blisteringly fast, but it's big, so don't expect it to dance around a mountain pass like an M3. Both cars have their merits, so if you value sport over comfort and function over form and you don't care about the large price difference, it sounds like the Porsche is for you.
