I’ve driven almost all the versions of the F-Type from 4 cylinder to SVR. The F-Type is a very stylish, and (can be) brutally fast grand tourer. The best handling one (in my opinion) is the rear drive 2.0L. But however you slice it, dynamically not even close to the Porsche. And the manual box, that is no longer available, wasn’t really that good anyway. Kinda ropey.
