I did some benchmarks on WebView a while back and it's performance and rendering capabilities were, in most cases for the benchmark tests I tried, perfectly acceptable for today's web pages.
Do you have specific pages or benchmarks where WebKit is slow or renders strangely?
(I have found some in the past and logged them as issues and in most cases those issues were fixed by the WebView/JavaFX team).

I'm (wildly) guessing that if WebView ends up being supported on iOS, that might occur through wrapping the iOS Safari control rather than the ported JavaFX specific webkit engine modifications - but I doubt such a thing would happen anytime soon as there is no roadmap for such support and any initial iOS implementation for JavaFX is likely to go out without WebView support.

Related question: Will we ever see something like the platform specific browser in JavaFX? Or is this a WONT_HAPPEN?
I am not a particular fan of the huge embedded WebKit engine. Don't get me wrong: the idea itself is great and everything, but so far the Webkit engine feels slow and tries hard to render webpages strangely.
