Lexus SC430 Vs. Porsche Carrera Cabriolet Vs. Jaguar XK8 Cabriol

Discussion in '2001 Lexus SC430' started by datruesuperman, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. I would coose the Lexus because it if faster than the Jaguar and It has the hardtop that the porsche lacks. It is also only about .6 seconds slower than the Carrera with a price tag about 10K.

    You can get a Porsche Carrera Cabriolet with a hard top. Just not one that folds in the truck (mid engine). Anyway, I would take the Porsche because it is was better because of its looks, history, and it's German.

    But that is jsut more $$$ for the porsche without even adding some of the options the lexus already has on it.

    Like I could afford any of these cars anyway. You presented this topic as a comparison, not which one I would buy if I had the money. And I think the Porsche is the best car, not the best car for the money.

    The Carrera Cabrio is 1 second faster to 60 than the Lexus.

    Lexus SC430 all the way. we just bought one, and the car is spectacular. The 911 Cabriolet is typically clocked at less than 0.5 seconds quicker to 60, definatly not worth the difference in price. And the Lexus has the Toyota quality which is definatly lacking in the Porsche.

    HAH

    Toyota quality my ass. Porsche 996 has more style, more power (320 bhp), higher top speed(177), even better gas mileage (19/32), better 0-1/4 mile (13.2 seconds), better 0-100 time (11.6 seconds), not to mention that the lexus doesnt even have a stickshift option, Also in my opinion the lexus is a very feminine car.

    But who am i to argue with toyota's long line of high powered, high class, fast, sports cars. pfft

    (if your stupid thast last line was sarcastic)



    Also I would like to note how many Toyotas do you see broken down on the hughway... How many Porsches... Exactly. There is no quality in Toyota
