Both the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe and the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S offer dynamic and impressive performance that can woo other drivers on the road as well as get your heart racing. When you factor in the price, it becomes apparent that the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE offers the same level of performance minus a couple of horses without incurring the unnecessary costs:
- 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe SVR Performance: A 5.0L Supercharged V8 engine that develops up to 575 hp and 516 lb.-ft. of torque works with an 8-speed Quickshift ZF automatic transmission. In 3.5 seconds, you’ll get from 0-60mph, and the top speed is 200 mph. AWD is standard.
- 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Performance: This coupe is powered by a 3.8L Boxer 6 engine that develops up to 580 hp and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. Working with a PDK transmission, this vehicle has a maximum speed of 205 mph.
Both vehicles allow you to stay connected on the go, but only the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe gives you the intuitive visual controls on an 8-inch touchscreen that allows you to manage multiple smart devices, audio streaming, and phone connections. The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S offers the Porsche Communication Management system that lacks the intuitive design of Jaguar InControl. The new F-TYPE also comes with HD Radio and a free subscription to SiriusXM radio for crystal-clear, commercial free entertainment.
Audiophiles rejoice—the 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe comes standard with a 12-speaker 770-watt Meridian Surround Sound System with Digital Signal Processing and Meridian Cabin Connection to cancel out road noise by automatically adjusting sound levels. The 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S comes with a 12-speaker BOSE audio system with less power output rated at 550 watts.
Advance Safety Technologies
With all the modern tech in the automotive industry, driver assistance technology is among the most exciting innovations in recent years. While both vehicles offer high performance brakes with stopping power to match that of their engine power, they offer different levels of driver assistance technology for comprehensive protection while you’re on the road.
- 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe: Included with the Premium + Vision package, this sports car includes Assisted Parking which alerts you when you’re in danger of hitting a nearby vehicle or object while parking your car to protect the exterior. The Blind Spot Monitor gives you a visual indicator on the appropriate side mirror if a vehicle approaches your blind spot, while rear cross traffic alert gives you a heads up when a vehicle approaches while you’re backing up. Automatic high beams turns down your brights when an oncoming vehicle approaches to give you both better visibility.
- 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S: This vehicle offers three driver assistance technologies. Adaptive Cruise Control adjusts speed when you’re using cruise control if you approach oncoming traffic. Lane Change Assist is standard and is comparable to the Blind Spot Monitor, and Porsche Entry & Drive is a smart key fob that allows you to unlock the doors by proximity, which you can do with the F-TYPE from the Jaguar InControl Remote app on your smartphone.
