      Both my Mum and I are looking to buy a new car. We've both test driven the Cayman S and the F-type. I fell in love with the Jag and she's fallen in love with the Porsche.

      I’d have to agree with Steve Sutcliffe, if there’s just one car I could would be the Cayman GTS, it’s just Brilliant!

      The Cayman might be better but I would have the jaguar, though I did find it a bit snug compared to my XK.

      The Jag is a stunner. But in the end it's about the pure driving experience, so the Cayman gets the nod. Especially with a true 6 speed manual.

      The Cayman not bad but we seen it a million times. The F type looks more exciting and sounds much better. Sharper body lines all around it. People that buy this Porsche is just going after a name.

      3:20 to 3:33 is why the Jag overshadows the Porsche and every other car in its league. You just cannot argue with that beauty.
      And then ofcourse Porsche went and made the Boxster & Cayman in 4 cyclinder cars. Urgh.

      Well, if a British journalist chose Porsche over a Jag it must be not just a bit but substantially better.

      The F Type is just such a pretty car! When Britts put their hearts in it, we get real beauties!

      To quote from another comparison years ago. 'The Jag is a car whilst the Porsche is a machine'.

      the cayman is lighter and faster turns better. its obviously the more capable sports car. if only jag cut
      out all the flab and drilled the chassis it would then stand a chance.

      Depends what you want though doessn't it? The Jag is by far better looking (in my opinion) and has that road presence the Porsche lacks.

      When are they introducing the Ingenium I6?
      They claim their new design is modular, but what, They’re gonna stop at 4 cylinders when they could make 6????

      I mean, don’t get me wrong, their I4 makes the same HP as their now defunct 12 cylinder, but seriously, an I6 is pure jaguar.

      Everytime when a german car competes with a british one, the british is a "far way" better looking car, and it turns more heads on the street, right? Because "it's british", right? And all of us buy a sports car to listen how loud it roars, if it farts, if it throws flames out of the exhausts, how it drifts or how "fun" is to drive it (and to fly away out of the road), right?... Maybe from the british purists' point of view, - american cowboys too -. Because most of people first demand "knife edged" accuracy and safety when driving even a sports car, without so many heartbeats.

      Jag is a luxury sport sedan, Cayman GT4 is a true sport car.

      Selling F type jag before it falls to bits and buying a Cayman. Jaguar are a joke.

      These might have been a similar price new, but the GTS has held its value incredibly well and is at least 15k more than the equivalent Jag 2nd hand now. I was looking at a base 981 Boxster or Cayman, but am leaning towards the Jag now as you are getting a lot more for your money.

      Did you re-run this comparison with the AWD v8 vs. the Caymen? The Jaaag probably walks away from the Porsche in the R configuration and for not a lot more $'s. With discounts of up to 25% on the new, old stock '17 R models they seem like far to good a bargain to miss..
