The new Jaguar F-Type is designed to go head-to-head with a Porsche 911. But is it better? There's only one way to find out: Give both to Tiff Needell and set him loose on a race track for some drifting hot lap action. This is the video you need to see today.
On paper, the cars are fairly evenly matched. Tiff has a base Porsche 911 Cabrio. That means 345 horsepower out of the flat six and a seven speed manual gearbox. The F-Type is the V6S, which has 380 horsepower out of its supercharged V6 and an eight speed automatic.
The F-Type is heavier, so that seems to negate the horsepower advantage.
I'm not going to giveaway which car wins the fight, so just enjoy some sideways drift action and hot laps in both cars. It's the pick me up you need after one hell of a week.
