For dogs its obvious each race has distinct comportments and suits differents life styles. But what about cats? I feel like any race behaves pretty much the same and only difference is appearance. What do y'all think? Do you have experience in cat comportment regarding race?

Cats do not have races. There are different species, sub-species and breeds that are the result of human intervention (selective breeding).
I am an avid cat lover.
From what I have observed, most cat behaviours are common to all cats, no matter what the size.
There are, however, differences in intelligence and temperament.
For example, the oriental domestic breeds are more intelligent and therefore even more independent that other cats.
Tigers have a deserved reputation as stone-cold killers and are solitary cats.
Lions, by comparison, live in family groups and are not nearly as dangerous was tigers, from a human and zoo handler point of view.1

I have 3 cats and 2 of them are pure breed cats and the 3rd is a normal cat from the streets.
So, the youngest is a Maine Coon and he is the "boss" amond the animals in the house. He is very intelligent and opinionated for a cat and implies authority on the others. Heck, that cat protects me from our dog when he senses that I'm not feeling well (i. e. 1st day of period).
The middle cat is a Persian cat and well... he is the dumbest cat I have come across in my life. He doesn't understand what's happening around him and can't even jump or run properly (which are basic cat things). If he were to be outside, he would get killed by bugs...
And lastly, the normal street cat. She can be described as "the female logic". 😂 In one second she asks you to play with her, in the other second she wants to kill you because you played with her.1
