This week's Autocar magazine pits the Porsche Panamera S against the Jaguar XFR - and these are the best pictures from the showdown.
On list price the two cars appear unlikely bedfellows - the Porsche costs £72,266, the Jaguar £59,900.
However, both have similar hardware: V8 engines, near five-metre length and the aim of seating four people in comfort.
The battleground is the roads to and around mid-Wales, ensuring the cars are tested on everything from motorway to fast, flowing A-roads and the most twisting country lanes.
The location also provides the perfect backdrop for some stunning photography, which you can see by following the links above.
