Bright Red Colored Sportscar’s are perhaps everyone’s dream and we have got them right here on topspeed.in exclusively for our readers. In this video you can clearly see Autocar.UK test drives two of the hottest Sports Coupes available in the market today. One comes from the iconic British auto manufacturer while the other all the way from the land of some of the most popular premium car manufacturers of the World Germany.
Both the Jaguar F-Type Coupe and the Porsche Cayman GTS packs lot of punch and are rear wheel drive vehicles which actually doubles the excitement and the fun quotient. Now both this cars almost costs the same in the market but they are two different cars which have two different character. Now the Jag F-Type Coupe has Supercharged V6 engine has been mated to an eight speed paddle shift gearbox while the Porsche Cayman GTS 3.4 Liter Flat 6 uses a 6 speed manual gearbox. Mr. Steve Sutcliffe test drives these beauties and describes how they handle.
The Jaguar F-Type V6 S Coupe is powered by a 2995 cc supercharged petrol engine which produces about 375 hp of peak power at 6500 rpm and 450 Nm torque in between 3500-5000 rpm. It has an overall top speed of 171mph and can accelerate from 0-100 km/h mark in just 4.8 seconds where there is also a more powerful V8 version of this car available in the market. This F-Type Coupe is fast and what else will attract your attention is the wicked exhaust note coming out from its rear. The cabin too is driver focused and the driver sits in a good commanding position and gets an easy access to everything.
Now the Porsche Cayman GTS definitely is an unusual car which has brilliant handling characteristics and according to the Autocar.UK this has everything that you want in a sportscar under one roof. Now like I already mentioned above it is powered by a Flat 6, 3463 cc direct injection petrol engine which produces about 336 hp of peak power at 7400 rpm and 380 Nm of peak torque in between 4.750 - 5.800 rpm. This Coupe too can accelerate from 0-100km/h mark in just 4.9 seconds and has a top speed of 177mph mark. You will also get couple of extra optional equipments which obviously comes at an extra cost but definitely makes the handling even better. One more thing that I need to mention here is the fact that the Porsche Cayman GTS is also lighter than the Jaguar F-Type Coupe.
Now because the Cayman GTS is lighter car than the F-Type it obviously handles better because it carries less weight with it.
