2015 F-TYPE Overview

The Jaguar F-Type was introduced in 2014, save the XK220 the first two-seater from the brand in decades and Jaguar's first sports car since the E-Type of 40 years prior.F Convertible oozes style and sensuality, comes well equipped and offers performance that backed up the look.

For 2015, Jaguar has added a Coupe to the model lineup, with V6 and V6 S matching the Convertible, the 495-hp V8 S of the soft-top upgraded to the 550-hp V8 R Coupe.We won't dare debate which is the more attractive, only note the Coupe is even more solid, less expensive and has considerably more trunk space if you don't travel light: James Bond style at a third his Aston's price.There is also a very limited-edition Project 7 Convertible, the most highly-strung, least-practical F-Type.

F-Type is not a traditional Jaguar with a supple ride or burled walnut woodwork.By Jaguar standards it's a sports car with generous power, superb firm suspension and a driver-centric, thoroughly modern cabin.By sports car standards it is a modern luxury sports-GT car: relatively big, heavy, swathed in leather and fitted with near-endless amenities.

With shapely bodywork mistaken only occasionally for an Aston Martin this is one of the prettiest news cars extant.There's just enough heritage in the styling to evoke the E-Type without any hint of retro; compared to an F-Type, Porsche's 911 Carrera reminds of a Vivaldi concerto…the same thing 50 different ways (and years).Jaguar designer Ian Callum hasn't yet been knighted, but expect it any day.

The low-slung cabin features very supportive if none-too-cushy seats, clear gauges, logically grouped controls and a big buttress that both separates the driver and passenger zones and gives the latter a hand-hold.Convertibles offer enough trunk space for a pair of overnight bags, while the Coupe swallowed a 24-inch roller and some smaller gear.

Others may offer more advanced gadgets or driver assistants but the F-Type includes as standard things like navigation, leather/suede upholstery and a name-brand 10-speaker sound system that many alternatives charge extra for.

Perhaps bets of all, the F-Type has an engaging soundtrack, plenty of power and crisp dynamics to deliver performance expected from a sporty Jag.It will put up some impressive numbers, and if you have good car control bring a smile to your face as it destroys rear tires drifting.

In late 2014 Jaguar announced the 2016 F-Type, which has some noteworthy additions.These include the option of all-wheel drive on a V6 S automatic, a six-speed manual gearbox for rear-drive V6 models, a 550-hp R Convertible replacing the V8 S, and all-wheel drive standard on V8 F-Types.We're most excited about the manual gearbox, noting all-wheel drive will help initial acceleration but also add weight and cost.

The F-Types primary target is the Porsche 911, which costs about $6,000 more than a V6 S Coupe and $15,000 more in Convertible form.Although you could argue the F looks better than any challengers, V6 shoppers might consider the Audi S5, BMW M4, Chevrolet Corvette, Mercedes-Benz SLK and Porsche Cayman as alternatives.F-Type V8 competition might include the Audi R8, BMW …
