With the Porsche 911 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Jaguar XK, due to its tank size and fuel economy.
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Jaguar XK or the Porsche 911, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Jaguar XK will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche 911.
Since the Jaguar XK is much wider than the Porsche 911, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Jaguar XK, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Porsche 911.
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Jaguar XK does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Porsche 911.
The Jaguar XK has about the same turning radius as the Porsche 911, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.
When it comes to horsepower, the Jaguar XK has a much more powerful engine than the Porsche 911. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Jaguar XK and the Porsche 911. The Jaguar XK has less cargo capacity than the Porsche 911, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
The Jaguar XK comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche 911.
