Porsche. I like Corvettes, but I don't like the fact that they're worthless in the slightest amount of snow. I know you said weekend car, but the thing about a Porsche is that you can use it every day, it will hold up, it's not a princess garage queen like the Corvette. Jaguars do nothing for me, since the 80's/90's.

Thanks for your opinion.

To be clear, these are weekend sports cars for canyon carving, the very rare track meet, and general hell-raising.

None of them will ever see snow.

You lost me when you said $100,000 car and budget in the same sentence

My vote is an Audi R8.

The F-Type looks very nice and still pretty rare. The Cayman is popular and people seem to use them as daily drivers. I could be happy with either.

I wouldn't buy a Corvette, because I'm not 60 and don't feel the need to drive around in a giant ugly piece of plastic that only goes in straight lines.

Jaguar no question. Corvettes are for guys with beards and hats who wish they could leave their wife. Porsche is too sterile. Jaguars have soul. And stunningly good looks.

I love the style of the F-Type Jaguar, it's a gorgeous car...but I didn't vote for it since other than a gorgeous car it just doesn't have the appeal to me of the other two, and I picture it as a car I could live with 7 days a week as opposed to simply weekends.

The Corvette is awesome for it's horsepower, supercar performance on sub-supercar budget. But when you start getting into Z06 corvette realms, it starts to get close to supercar pricing (granted $100k and $250k are very different...but I doubt I'll ever spend either on a car and as such they're both in the stratosphere to me).

With that I chose the Cayman. It's quite possibly the best looking Porsche sports car made....the lines are gorgeous, the slick looking hardtop adds EVERYTHING to the Boxster. It's livable daily if you'd like, but I think of it as an "and" car... (i.e. I drive that AND that). While not necessarily more rare than a Z06 Vette (likely the opposite) it would be recognizable as a high end "exotic" by more than the Z06 would be...It should be plenty capable carving canyons, backroads, or at the track...and could leasiruly get ice cream on Saturday nights, or mocha on Sunday mornings.

Why is the 911 not on the list?

Add a hubcap to a 911 and you're over $100,000.

I would still buy a Cayman given twice the budget. It's that good.
