Ask every Jaguar marketer, who do they think is the main competitor for Their F-Type and they will proudly let you know that their car has no competitors. They’ll also tell you that it is a unique and exceptional car that is currently present on the market. Well, guys are simply doing their job. And it’s difficult to compete with Jaguar’s prices, so it may seem like a unique deal for most of the customers. The cheapest vehicle with a price of € 94.300 (equipped with V6 engine with 340 hp of capacity) is too expensive for BMW Z4 and Audi TT RS with same technical characteristics. But V8 that costs € 139.500 offers significantly more power for less money than Audi R8 or Aston Martin V8 Vantage. The more stranger fact is that V6S with 380 hps of capacity that has a price of € 110.000 and is the best in F-Type line has no similar vehicles it can be compared to. How cool is that? Let us tell you, very!
The bad thing is that your unseen enemy may hide somewhere else and attack when you least expect it. The main danger from both sides may come from Porsche 911 and Boxster.
As for the price and dynamics, F-Type V6S almost ideally gets between best Porsche versions. It is €35.000 more expensive that Boxster S, but 911 € 30.000 cheaper than Сarrera S Cabrio. Such Jaguar is 65 hp more powerful than Boxster and just 20 hp less powerful than 911 is. And based on the official characteristics, 911 will be the firs to gain the 100 km/hour speed, front-wheel F-Type follows right after it and Boxster comes third with 0.4 seconds time difference. Does that make the F-Types an alternative to 911 or a more expensive competitor to Boxster? Only Scottish people could answer that.
When you sit in the 911 you begin to realize why is it more expensive, it may even have a slightly better control and dynamics than F-Type. As for the F-Type, it seems like Jaguar wanted to redesign and restyle Porsche’s 911 model. And from the first look at this car you know they managed to succeed. Let’s wait and know for sure.
