Jaguar F-TYPE vs. Porsche 718 Boxster: Reviews 

Now that you know a little more about how the Jaguar F-TYPE and Porsche Boxster 718 roadsters compare, you probably are wondering what the consensus is about these vehicle’s from an auto enthusiast’s perspective. Here’s what expert reviewers from Car and Driver are saying about the Boxster 718 vs. Jaguar F-TYPE:

Jaguar F-TYPE

  • Car and Driver: “the Jaguar F-type is arguably one of the most underappreciated sports cars. While its menacing new face may polarize some, the two-seater still has undeniably attractive proportions. Available as a coupe or convertible, the F-type encompasses its passengers with a snug cabin and enthralls its driver with snarling supercharged engines. Of course, there’s also a four-cylinder version that reduces the cost of entry. Regardless of powerplant, this Jag is at its best on twisting roads where its agility and composure shine.”

Porsche Boxster 718

  • Car and Driver: “This car’s mid-engine design and sport-tuned chassis help it to deliver perfectly balanced driving dynamics, and its lineup of horizontally opposed turbocharged four- and six-cylinder engines provide plenty of power to accompany this roadster’s sharp handling.”
