    Re: Jaguar F type coupe

    Drove alongside an F-Type R Coupe this morning on the way to work with my wife. She tolerates my love of cars but doesn’t really share it (then again she’s one of the very few women in North America I’ve ever met who categorically prefers driving a manual). We had the windows down and were listening to the jag snort, fart and growl from red light to red light.

    She turned to me after a couple of minutes and said, and I quote (thankfully wasn’t drinking a coffee at the time); “You can get one of those if you want. It makes me think of sex. A lot of dirty sex. It’s gorgeous.”

    Thankfully I didn’t open my mouth because I felt like an old man when the first thought was, We’ve got a 3 year old and another on the way, it wouldn’t be very practical. I’ll put that down to being tired because she’s right, it’s a jag but it screams dirty, messy, mid-afternoon sex.

    Well... I drove one recently and liked engine, gearbox, power delivery, even interior was pretty good and totally HATED steering.

    Almost NO self-centering at all. It tight corners it felt like crap.

    Ha ha, 

    I thought the gearbox crap (especially compared to the same installation in BMW) and the steering OK.  It didn't self centre strongly and the level of assistance was too high but the feedback was far superior to the 991 in all corners

    Omg. If my wife would say this, my life would be complete.

    Re: Jaguar F type coupe

    A friend got the F-Type S Cab (380 hp, V6) from a dealership for a test-drive yesterday.

    I was in my Jeep SRT with my son when we met.

    My fuel tank was almost full, his was half full.

    We drove on a nearby Autobahn and tried accelerating from aprox. 120 kph to 220 kph various times. Each time, I was a tiny bit (kind of in slow motion) faster than him. He was quite disappointed with the Jag (and I was quite happy with the Jeep).

    I looked up the 0-100 kph and 0-200 kph times for the F-Type S Cab and they are 5.3 and 19.1 seconds.

    Now my friend is looking into the V8 S instead. indecision

    You gotta stop doing that. Between your friends 991 and that Jag your going to give owners of those cars deep psychological issues.  Spend 5K on a SRT supercharger kit and you will surely send them to the nuthouse.Smiley

    Worse, add a stroker motor and a supercharger for a 0-125 time of 10 sec https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wut5dR1Hq2k

    My dealer offers stroking to 7.3 . Official power: 557 hp. Real power: 620 hp.Smiley Drove the car of the junior boss and was amazed. 0-100 kph in 4.3 seconds (mine is 4.4 seconds, only 0.1 seconds slower but it is very difficult to achieve a better acceleration time in this speed range), 0-200 kph in 15.6 seconds (3 seconds faster than my car and this puppy already is pretty fast Smiley). This is Cayenne Turbo S territory. No turbo lag, fuel consumption a bit higher only. Completely street legal, which is important in Germany.

    Superchargers or Turbo kits are really that suitable since they raise the torque too much. Right now, there is no street legal kit available in Germany.

    Btw: My dealer has a Jeep Wrangler (short version) with a V10 Viper engine in it. Power wasn't enough, so they added two turbo chargers to the package. Total power is 800 hp. Street legal. I had the chance to take this puppy for a spin (with the junior boss as a passenger, he didn't trust me Smiley) and wow, amazing fun car. It has no AWD anymore, just RWD and the black marks it leaves on the asphalt are just adorable. Smiley

    They also install the 7.3 HEMI engine into the Jeep Wrangler. Kind of stealth fun toy. Everything is street legal, which is quite amazing for Germany.

    Re: Jaguar F type coupe

    Here are two photos of that infamous Jeep Wrangler with bi-turbo charged Viper V10 engine. Like I said...800 hp and street legal.

    Re: Jaguar F type coupe

    That is a bad ass Wranglerkiss

    Even with just a current NA Viper motor it would be outrageous.indecision

    I think you would have to go with aftermarket differentials and drives shafts to go to monster hp in a SRT. The one thing that the Turbos or a Supercharger will do over a NA motor is to make all that power happen faster and get you incredible acceleration after 200kph. Even in Germany Mopar factory stroker motors have too be ridiculously inexpensive compared to Porsche factory motors.

    FWIW,  GM offers a 572cu inch (9.2 liter) crate engine. With a mild tune and NA they easily make 730hp and 750ft lbs of torque. They sell for 13,000.00 less intake and exhaust.

    Re: Jaguar F type coupe

    I would never do more to my Jeep SRT than that 7.3 l stroking I mentioned. Everything else would require, as you already mentioned, a lot of aftermarket mods to cope with the increased torque. Not worth it.

    Almost got that 7.3 l stroker but decided to wait for the Hellcat Jeep (if they are going to offer one).
