Are these two sentences the same? Which one is preferred?

1 The overall dynamics of a new car and an old car are similar.

2 The overall dynamics of a new car are similar to those of an old car.

An other example:

3 The color of my shirt and your shirt is similar.

4 The color of my shirt is similar to that of your shirt.

    3 should read "The colours ... are similar."

    They're all correct and natural if you make my suggested grammar adjustment. The second version sounds slightly more formal and more precise.
