Noticed there are 14 Portfolios listed among the 18s on the JagUSA site. No pics yet, so they must be on trucks still but they are all Yulong White.

If I hadn't decided to order a 2017 S in early January and was still looking to purchase an F-Pace I most likely would go with the 2018 Portfolio. I remember reading early on that the Portfolio was only going to be available in white here in the US but the 2018 model Jaguar USA configurator initially let me chose any color for the Portfolio, so I assumed Jaguar had changed it's mind, but I haven't checked it lately. Anyone know for sure if Portfolio's are only coming in white here in the US?

The original sales material said only white with the sienna tan interior but the configuration page lets you choose any color now. That was why I mentioned only whites listed as actual vehicles, seems to lend credence to the original scheme being correct, and an error on the configuration page.

The portfolio looks almost like the First Edition without the wrist band key but with heated and cooled seats.

The portfolio is just a hopped up prestige... the exterior is nothing like an S or FE. If you meant features wise than yes that would be right. :nerd:

Don't relay on the web site for info regarding the Portfolio, at least for Canada. I tried to order a Portfolio and wanted to make some minor changes. My Rep said that Jaguar corporate ordered 100 of them for Canada with set options. Only exterior colour & interior seating colours were able to be changed. Estimated arrivals were Oct/Nov.

I wasted lots of time on Jag's config site tweaking options for the Portfolio. Jag Corp should get their act in line and make it clear that you can't make changes. The web config site has been there for months.

Talk about not getting the marketing details right. What else are they doing wrong that we don't know about?

Are we to assume this 'portfolio' is finally taking 'cheap' out of F-P interior?

Don't have a problem with the interior myself, but I see what you did there with the avatar. Nicely played sir!

we sat in a sport & a portfolio their is a big difference in the leather & foam in the seats the 20 way seats are nice as the side bolsters move in & out & the front leg area extends forward. cooled seats are a must have in S. florida their is also 4 zone ac so the back passengers have their own controls & more pleather on the center console not just hard plastic. i do like the exterior of the sport better but not the 2 tone seats. the day we get our portfolio its going to get the wheels window trim , side vents & rear valance blacked out

we still love this thing so glad we got one of the last v6 in the portfolio it looks so much better with the wheels & trim blacked out. just wish they would do a update to make it read your text messages & a wireless phone charger would be nice. **** chevy trucks have both of these options just sayin

The newest ICTP updates (3.x and 17C ) introduce text messaging finally, so as soon as they figure out the glitches and rerelease the hold off 17C you can get text message support! And voice commands for nav too.
The wireless charger is a DIY alas.

Hi all. Newbie here. Been driving a fully loaded X5 (tired of the boxy truck-like ride of the 2015 and the X3 is just boring) that's coming up on lease end soon. Spouse & I split our driving 50/50 between two vehicles so it's important we both like the SUV. Empty-nesters with a big dog. Other car is a MBZ E-class sedan so we test drove the GLE 350 and, well, it's a GLE 350. You've seen one, you've seen them all. You've driven one, and you think about driving back to the BMW dealer. One big vicious circle of boring.

Then we started noticing F-Pace's on the road. Full stop. What is that?!?

Have since been chasing the 2018 F-Pace Prestige for a week, we're now attempting to zero-in on the Portfolio. Unsure why those in the US right now are all exclusively Yulong White and ALL of them Yulong White w/Sienna interior. You'd think if this is a test market launch, they'd have selected something else. This White/Sienna probably won't be a fair test launch.

Only 1 Portfolio within 200 miles of us, so we're test driving it (a 35t) today or tomorrow. Just moved here from Boston and quite frankly, the Jaguar dealerships here are not as customer-friendly/driven as the BMW & MBZ dealerships are on both coasts IME. It might keep us from buying a Jag locally. I digress. Real point is this forum has been our primary source of specific info and we're grateful.

The new Portfolio interior seems like a worthwhile pursuit. If we could find other colors, we'd order online but there aren't any nation-wide it seems. Wondering how long it might take to special order!

by default the portfolio only come in white. if you want a color its a special order mine took just under 3 months to get here but they only come with a 4 cyl now.. only the s model has the v-6 motor but you cant get the upgraded leather seats in a s.

If you want to make it an official *Mention* , of the members name ,
you have to delete the blank space between the @sign and the name ,
and also use CAPS where they use CAPS , and delete the colon after the name !:)
