All the vehicles in this class have a very distinct character; they’re sold as much on how the tactile feel they send to the driver as they are styling and features.
The Porsche 911 comes in Targa and Cabriolet versions, as well as Turbo form, and has the automaker’s famous flat-six engines mounted at the back.
The Cadillac XLR has a supercharged option like the Jaguar, but its folding hardtop, angular body, and American V-8 sound have a different appeal.
The BMW 6-Series has a fabric convertible top and a 500-hp M6 edition, while the Mercedes-Benz SL roadsters sport a folding hardtop and available AMG versions with more than 600 hp.
The XK however has a more distinctive interior design than either the BMW or the Benz.
