It seems like everyone is after Porsche 911 customers. It used to be that Nissan was the most noted Porsche 911 competitor (or at least the company that wanted to be thought of that way). However, Corvette announced earlier this year that they would actively seek to try and convert 911 customers to GM customers and the new Jaguar F-Type pops up in my browser almost every time I search on something Porsche related (can you say keyword targeting?). So, it seems like the Porsche 911 is still the benchmark for all others to compare against.
In the video below, Chris Harris drives the 490hp F-Type against the new 991 Cabriolet S and the Aston Martin V8 Vantage. It's 24 minutes long, but well done through out. If you want to jump to the comparison just fast forward to 22:27 and Chris sums everything up quite nicely. Hoever, if you have the time, start around 19:30 and watch as Chris man handles the 911 around the track. I want his job!!
