2021 Porsche Taycan vs. 2021 Jaguar F-Type

The 2021 Jaguar F-Type is absolutely stunning, with near futuristic looks, staggering V8 power and a thrilling exhaust. But can it overcome the 2021 Porsche Taycan, a powerhouse of a vehicle with dazzling tech, earth shattering performance and state of the art gadgetry?

Design & Style

The Porsche Taycan is a real head turner, no doubt about it. Its designers masterfully combined classic Porsche esthetics with contemporary shapes that make this vehicle distinct, even among its peers. The rear is lean, while the lighting structure consists of LED lights and fangs which surround its front bumper. The side profile resembles a scallop which extends from its doors to the wheels, and within the cabin passengers will be presented with a subdued yet optimal color combination, which are akin to the 911.

The Jaguar F-Type has a frame which is low slung with an extensive hood and curves which are graceful and refined. Both the tail and headlights have been slightly revised, with slimmer LEDs, and the grille has been widened. Turbo-4 variants showcase an exhaust outlet that is centrally mounted, while V8 models get dual exhausts which are quad tipped. Within the cabin drivers will be presented with a digitized instrument cluster that is 12.3 inches in size.

Technology & Safety

The Jaguar F-Type is far too expensive to regularly crash test, yet it has more than enough safety features to give drivers and passengers peace of mind. This includes emergency automatic brakes, blind area monitoring, excellent outward vision, and multiple airbags with lane control that is active. Luxuries within the cabin include powered seats and steering, ten inch touchscreens, Android Auto or Apple CarPlay and leather upholstery. Like the F-Type, the Porsche Taycan is too costly to crash test, but still has received a five star rating from EuroNCAP. This is due to its many safety countermeasures such as parking sensors, emergency automated brakes, lane and cruise control and driver assist. It also uses night vision and a camera with surround view. Perks within its cabin include 10.9 inch touchscreens, climate control, Apple CarPlay and air suspension which are adaptive.

Performance

The Porsche Taycan is one of the fastest cars on the planet. Those who purchase the Turbo S will be able to accelerate from zero to sixty in just 2.6 seconds, and it can achieve a 162 mph top speed. The Jaguar F-Type is equipped with a supercharged V8 that is 5 liter and capable of generating 575 horsepower, which enables it to go from zero to sixty in under 5 seconds.

The Bottom Line

While both of these cars are well matched, the Porsche edges out the Jaguar due to its larger instrument cluster, superior acceleration, and the F-Type has a cargo area which many consider too cramped, so the Taycan wins.
