    Hey folks. Wondering if anyone has experience with the F-Type Jag? I have a 987.2 and thinking of moving into a 981, but with an open mind, I am also considering the F-Type and wondering if anyone has any thoughts on the two, or maybe even has some ownership experience to share about the F-Type. Both would be a few years old, probably 2014 and hopefully S models. Thanks for any input. Cheers!

    hello
    lots of you tube videos comparing the 981 and the f type. 981 almost always comes up on top.
    Porsche. There is no substitute.

    regards,

    When I decided I wanted a roadster, the 981 and F-Type were both on my short list.

    Now, the reason I dropped the F-Type was because, at the time, there was no manual transmission option available. Now there is, so that’s not so relevant.

    That aside though, I feel like I really dodged a bullet on that one. Firstly, my Boxster was amazing in every way as a roadster. On the roads, it was sublime, and it had enough space in it to pack for a weekend for myself, my wife, and our dog. That car never failed to impress me and I still miss it.

    More than that though, the Porsche community has been amazing and the Boxster held it’s own on the track beyond all expectations. I can’t imagine the F-Type, being softer and heavier and more of a little touring car, would have given the same experience or had the same enthusiast community.

    Jaguar ownership would have been fleeting until I moved on to the next thing.

    Porsche ownership seems like it’ll be a lifelong adventure.
