F-type, Stingray, Boxter, or SLK?

Got a budget of around 75k. (looking for a convertible)

i care mostly about looks and sounds.

My choices:

- Jaguar F-type (v6 - 340 hp)
- Porsche Boxter (v6 - 315 hp)
- Chevy Stingray (v8 - 460 hp)
- Mercedes SLK55 AMG Roadster (v8 - 415 hp)

Same budget but have some experience with two of those cars.

SLK is nice but I got it for my wife.

Stingray is very nice but I would not want to drive that everyday.

So there is no question here. The best car is the 2018 Camaro ZL1, hands down.

My choices:

- Jaguar F-type (v6 - 340 hp) - naw, step up to the v8 R model
- Porsche Boxter (v6 - 315 hp) - roller skate
- Chevy Stingray (v8 - 460 hp) - Good option but hope you like plastic 'cause there is a LOT of it in the interior
- Mercedes SLK55 AMG Roadster (v8 - 415 hp) - roller skate with big ole v8! LOL (Loved my CLK55 when I had it but the F-Type is heads and shoulder above unless you REQUIRE a convertible hardtop.)
Hopefully you made the right choice but for reference, many of us paid only around $80K-$85K (discounted down from $112K list) for the '17 v8 F-Type R model so for $10K more you coulda had a v8!
