Jag F-Type vs Porsche 911 vs Boxster

But the problem with having no head-on competitor means you're susceptible to attack from the flanks. This is a particular issue if the twin-pronged flank attack happens to come from the Porsche 911 and Boxster. In price and performance, the V6S F-Type almost perfectly bisects Porsche's two finest, costing more than the Boxster S, but costs less than the 911 Carrera 2S Cabrio. The F makes 64bhp more than the Boxster, and just 20bhp less than the 911. Set the three cars in a race to 100kph and, according to manufacturer stats, the rear-engined 911 will get there first, with the front-engined F-Type two-tenths of a second behind and the mid-engined Boxster two-tenths further back again. So does that make the F-Type a fine-value alternative to the 911, or a seriously pricey Boxster rival? Only Scotland has the answer...
