2018 Porsche Panamera vs. 2018 Jaguar F-Type

The 2018 Jaguar F-Type is packed with cutting-edge technology, with great looks and performance due to its engine. It competes against the 2018 Porsche Panamera, a car with a large assortment of engines, a composure which is enviable, and street burning speed. Which of the two should you buy?

Design & Style

The newest Panamera has been redesigned to eliminate the lumpiness that was present in previous editions. It now has a roofline that has been lowered by about an inch, with overhangs that are shorter and haunches that are similar to the Porsche 911. Taillights wrap around the rear with a strip of LEDs which are red in color. The Jaguar F-Type doesn’t waste sheet metal in any way. Its exterior is taught, with reminders of previous editions such as the E-Type. The headlights in the front are swept back but do not encapsulate the fenders. The extended hood is visible from the side, with rear windows that flow gently into the haunches of the widened rear.

Technology & Safety

Jaguar takes safety very seriously in the new F-Type. Drivers can expect a host of assistance features, such as emergency automatic brakes, warnings for lane departures and collisions, and control for active lanes. Even more impressive, the car is capable of identifying and interpreting traffic signs and responding accordingly. It has a speed system, which can slow the car down or speed it up based on speed limit data which is collected from its cameras. Each model of the Porsche Panamera is equipped with warnings for forward collision, a camera in the rearview, and cruise control which is adaptive. It assists drivers with parking and even provides a limited self-driving capability.


The Porsche Panamera was built for speed, which is evident at first glance. Even the most basic model is equipped with a V6 3 liter engine that is turbocharged and capable of producing 330 horsepower, which gives it the ability to go from zero to sixty in just over five seconds. From there the performance and price continues to increase for more advanced editions. The Jaguar F-Type is furious and fast in its own right. The latest edition comes standard with a turbo 4, 2 liter engine capable of producing 296 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The Porsche Panamera and Jaguar F-Type are fierce rivals. However, the Jaguar lags in a number of areas where the Porsche shines. For instance, its turbo 4 engine just isn’t that refined when compared to the Porsche, with some complaining about the unusual sound it makes, so the Porsche Panamera wins.
