Jag F-Type vs Porsche 911 vs Boxster

"Jaguar benchmarked the 911 for performance," noted the sage-like Paul Horrell at the end of our day testing the F-Type against the two Porsches. "And I'd say it's succeeded in that. Problem is, it benchmarked the wrong Porsche..."

So, that question again. The F-Type: great-value alternative to the 911, or a seriously pricey Boxster rival? Erm, it's both. And if you think that's a headache for anyone considering an F-Type, imagine what it's like for the poor Porsche salesmen... F-Type, imagine what it's like for the poor Porsche salesmen...
