Jag...As awesome as the Porsche is, I feel like you would see yourself coming and going, especially in affluent areas.

Garage Queen... yeahh... there is a picture floating around of one cruising down a snowy road with a dissentergrating xmas tree ties to the top of it.

I say since you have that much money, mr Warbucks, buy the cheapest one, and send me what's left, so I can get a Vic, about 3000 will do it, a car plus a full tank of gas.

I think you can tell by the answers so far, is that there is no one answer. Each person is going to like different cars for different reasons. I am a car enthusiast and have cars because I love driving them.

For me, looks are not totally out of the equation, but they are not in the same stratosphere for me as the driving experience. I've had a 1970 Corvette for a year and a half that I drive around in primer with no bumpers. And prestige is of absolutely no importance to me. I have a 73 Mustang coupe to prove it.

But looks and prestige are important to some as evidenced by some of the posts. Bottom line is you are going to feel differently that all of us posters. If I were you, I'd drive all three and make the determination yourself, as only you know what you like. Especially since you mentioned that canyon carving and other performance driving is most important to you. You need to know how these cars differ in their ride, handling, acceleration, etc.

wait.. what?

I was about to pick jag since I don't like porsches or vettes. But that model vette doesn't look too bad and looks like it might be the fastest of the 2. Dont know... just guessing going by horsepower only. Didn't check the porsches HP since I can't stand porsches period. Wouldn't matter. Always thought they look like a girl's car and they're not fast at all compared to the rides I like.

Yea... i was gonna pick the Jag first before I looked at the back and whole size and design. Looks like a SUV to me. Not that streamlined. Especially the back. The model the OP is asking about looks exactly like the SUV version Jaguar Cx 17. It just sits a little lower to the ground. Ugh not feeling it

Now if he had threw up the Jag C x75. No competition at all with those other 2 cars I've never liked. In looks or performance.

Exactly

GTR is one of my favorites.

His list... either makes period (porsche and vette? ) or make and model F type R. Don't cut it at all for me. When I see that list I don't think fast!.
