The 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE vs. the 2016 Porsche Cayman
Thanks to exemplary performance and an opulent cabin, the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE has made itself a leader among the elite class of luxury sport coupes and convertibles. Though the competition is few and far between, drivers may also be looking at the 2016 Porsche Cayman.
While there’s undoubtedly an appeal to Porsche’s luxury sport coupe, the Jaguar F-TYPE accelerates past the competition with relative ease. Check out this comparison before test driving the updated 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE at Jaguar Fort Myers serving Naples and Marco Island.
If you’re looking for a premium luxury sport coupe or convertible that delivers world-class performance specs, choose the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE. The base engine on this model is a supercharged 3.0L V6 that makes 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque. A revised version of this powertrain comes on the mid-range trim and increases output to 380 hp and 339 lb-ft of torque.
Topping off the powertrain lineup is the supercharged 5.0L V8, which makes an uncompromising 550 hp and 502 lb-ft of torque. With the supercharged V8, the Jaguar F-TYPE can move from zero to 60 mph in an impressive 3.5 seconds. Take your pick between rear-wheel and all-wheel drive.
For the 2016 Cayman, the starting 2.7L flat-six based engine makes just 275 hp and 213 lb-ft of torque. The second powertrain is a 3.4L flat-six that can produce 325 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque or 340 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, depending on the version you get. The most powerful engine is a 3.8L flat-six that makes 385 hp and 309 lb-ft of torque. No version of the Porsche Cayman can get to 60 mph faster than 4.2 seconds, and all-wheel drive is the only option.
Luxury Features and Technology
For better high-tech equipment and standard luxury in the cabin, the 2016 Jaguar F-TYPE is the obvious choice:
- Jaguar F-TYPE: Even the base trim is immaculately appointed with a 12-speaker Meridian stereo system, and eight-inch touchscreen interface, and leather upholstery with synthetic suede accents. The sports car is also equipped with full smartphone app integration, advanced navigation, satellite radio, and HD radio.
- Porsche Cayman: The base Porsche Cayman has a weak four-speaker factory audio system, a smaller seven-inch touchscreen interface, and the leather upholstery doesn’t get simulated suede accents.
