If you squint you can see a little bit of 1971 Datsun 240Z in it.

Absolutely beautiful car. When I was shopping around for a new car the Giulia, Daytona 392 and F Type made it to the final three. Practicality one that fight and I went with the Giulia, I pass an F Type on my daily commute and every time I see it I second guess my decision a bit.

Nice cars-wonder if they share the reliability issues that older Jags have?

From a driving dynamics point of view, the F-Type is quite a sweet daily driver.

It is not a race car for the street, it's not a track demon or autocross champion. Nor is it a stripped down low end car with lots of power.

The F-Type rides well, corners well and stops well. Nearly matching more capable track oriented cars, without punishing the driver in any way. There is a lot to like about that kind of car. Super fun.


People who count on their fingers should maintain a discreet silence.

Beautiful car. I really like how they managed to keep the curves of the basic design, see the E type, while adding the requisite modern touches. I thought the previous generation was one of the best looking modern cars...the last of the truly sexy jag's.


I don't have any experience w/ the F types, but friends who have the current Jag sedans like them and JLR's reliability is much better in the past few years as opposed to earlier.

I love the looks of that car. It's usually listed among the top 20 best looking cars of all time. I think the British Top Gear boys even put it in their top five or ten if memory serves.
It's just a crying shame its made by Titty TaTa motors. Reliability is big time in question. But then again, when Jags were made by the Brits, reliability was questionable then, too. But at least you had a British Jag. Now you would have to say you have an Indian Jag. frown

They and RR are still made in England, at least for now. Funny that the Tata years have resulted in better reliability though.

I agree with you though, I had the same feeling when I first opened this, but got over it...almost smile
