German sensibility vs British brawn
by Luke Vandezande

Porsche’s 911 Turbo S Cabriolet is like an open-top laser guided missile. It can steer with the rear wheels, is capable of a top speed just shy of the old GT2 and rockets to 60 mph in three seconds.

It comes with an interior that embarrasses most other cars in both quality and style, but in order to take one of them home, you’re looking at spending close to or above $200,000. Head-over-heels as I am for the stuff coming out of Zuffenhausen, it’s hard to get around how expensive it is and AutoGuide.com hot shoe Dave Pratte decided to make a bet with me.

He thought the Jaguar F-Type V8 S in all its supercharged V8 glory would be able to dissolve my Porsche-favoring pretension. Dave can be pretty silly, but I decided to humor him so we spent a day driving together to test his theory.

hands down id have the jag, despite being a huge porsche fanboy, i just dont think the new turbo is all that desirable. Having driven one, despite it being really..REALLY quick, the first thought that really came to my mind while driving it was "wow this is actually pretty boring".

For me the Turbo is just a big pile of numbers stacked on numbers, while those might be very impressive, it just lacks quite a bit of charakter and also something else i cant put my finger on, but the jag definately has it. Every time i see one on the road i just desperately want one.
