Jaguar’s latest move match the Porsche! The Jaguar F-Type 2-lt! Jaguar is trying hard to capture the Porsche market with the F-Type. To be fair, it is not an easy job. It resembles Samsung’s attempt to capture iPhone customers. You might be saying, good luck to Jaguar! I say the same thing, but I can see that Porsche lovers are still in love with the Porsche and not with the Jaguar F-Type.
However, the 2-lt petrol engine in the F-Type sounds quite tempting. It comes at a relatively affordable price of £50,000, and literally there is nothing really exciting that you need to add from the option list. Porsche’s option list is really tempting, because everything in a Porsche is literally optional.
With the latest decision on the part of Jaguar, the F-Type is in competition with the Porsche 718 and the 911 at the same time, with one product, the F-Type. It’s a very efficient way to compete! What about the safety? Jaguar F-Type offers contemporary safety systems with the F-Type. Autonomous Emergency Braking system, Lane Departure Warning (standard) and Lane Keep Assist (optional) systems. I am really impressed with the Jaguar’s commitment to offer these assistance systems.
