Though the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman and 2017 Jaguar F-TYPE are both two-seater sport cars, they’re dramatically different. At Porsche Riverside, we strive to make the car shopping process simpler by highlighting those differences so that shoppers may find the car model that better suits their needs. Although we may seem a bit biased, let the data speak for itself; compared to the Jaguar F-TYPE, the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman is the better buy—offering quicker performance, more interior space, cutting-edge tech, and innovative safety for Los Angeles area shoppers.
When it comes to the Porsche Cayman, there have been a myriad of changes for the 2017 model year that go far beyond the added “718” to its name. Performance has been improved, delivering sharper steering, and reprogrammed stability control that allows for more fun behind the wheel. The Porsche Active Suspension Management system has been enhanced for the new model year, offering improved ride and handling. Quite obviously, the Porsche Active Suspension Management system isn’t something drivers will find in the Jaguar model.
The Porsche 718 Cayman Checks Off More Boxes for Los Angeles Shoppers
Though the Jaguar F-TYPE boasts a large, more powerful engine under the hood, it’s the Porsche 718 Cayman that makes a faster jump from zero to 60 MPH. This is all thanks to the Porsche’s lighter vehicle weight. The base model of the 718 Cayman weighs in at just 2,944 lbs while the Jaguar F-TYPE base model weighs a hefty 3,454 lbs. Though the Jaguar weighs in at more than the Porsche model, it’s the 718 Cayman that offers a bit more passenger room; the 718 Cayman is also equipped with more versatile seats so that taller drivers can fit more comfortably.
Of course, though performance may be a top priority for sports car shoppers, it’s important that the vehicle offers the safety to match. The 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman offers more safety features than the F-TYPE. Shoppers at our Los Angeles Porsche dealership will drive with more confidence behind the wheel of the 718 Cayman, featuring a standard driver’s knee airbag and side-head airbags—both unavailable on the F-TYPE. The Porsche model also includes a standard rearview camera and parking sensors—features that are optional on the F-TYPE.
Most importantly, the 718 Cayman comes at a more affordable price than the F-TYPE. Visit us and see why the 2017 Porsche 718 Cayman is the better option for you! To schedule a test drive at Porsche Riverside serving Los Angeles, Riverside County, and Corona, contact us at 951-552-2700.
