2015 Jaguar F-TYPE What's new for 2015? 
2015 Jaguar F-TYPE

After its introduction as a convertible last year, the 2015 Jaguar F-Type adds a coupe model this year, broadening its 2-seat sports car's appeal to those who want a fixed roof...and more available power.

2014 Jaguar F-TYPE

The Jaguar F-Type is all-new for 2014, returning the brand to the 2-seat sports car market for the first time in decades.

About Jaguar F-TYPE

With the overwhelmingly successful introduction of the F-Type last year, Jaguar's first sports car in 40 years adds a hardtop coupe to the lineup. But there's a lot more to this new model than just keeping rain off your head permanently. The F-Type Coupe literally adds a roof to the convertible, creating a super-stiff structure that let Jaguar engineers sharpen the suspension and steering, and add a 550-horsepower supercharged V8. That power's sent through a slick-shifting 8-speed automatic transmission, while your inevitably high rate of speed can be scrubbed off with the optional $12,000 carbon-ceramic matrix brakes. Like the convertible, the coupe's shape blends classical and contemporary elements into an elegantly aggressive car that turns heads wherever it goes.

2014 Jaguar F type in Florida initial showing in 2013

"I have owned: 7 BMW 4 MB 4 Porsches and 3 Jags. I have 911S with 40k miles and can't sell it! The people with money lease it and get a tax deductions. Then they bail out and try to have dealers' market them with CPO. When CPO runs out so does the water cooled 911's. VW has put their money on Audi (R8 &10's) Money Cars. The last Rolex 24 can attest to VW's plans on the 911's. A new 991 -9i1S 3.8ltr is under 4 sec 0-60 for $118,000 and a new Jag S type starts at almost 1/2 or $69,000. Both are 6 cly; Porsche is 3.8 ltr with 400hp, but less torque that V6 Jag 3.0 supercharged 340 hp with 332# torque. Jag is advertised at 5.1 sec 0-60 same as 997-991S. Water cooled-Porsche does not seem to hold their values. Take the 996 or Boxsters. A 1999 can be bought for under $20k or $10k respectively. Porsche had engine troubles under 2009 when they went to direct injection heads and fixed their intermediate shaft engineered problems (IMS). The only market for watercooled 911's seem to be the dealers, since they make the market! Jaguar has come a long way, but body quality needs improvement. A 5.0 V8 with 385 hp and 360# can get 26 mpg at legal speed limits from here to Florida. The 911S gets arround 24 mpg. Time will tell if the new F type in a coupe will take a 911 GT3, but with a supercharge 5.0 V8 puting out almost 500 hp (same as 911 GT3) but having over 400# of torque. You have to buy a 911 (991) turbo not made yet for say twice the price of a Jag V8 supercharged at say $90k. When Jag comes out with the RS version of 550 HP and 450# of Torque, watch out 911 turbo's. The real test will be when they run the Jag in Le Mans or Daytona. The XK RS did not fair to well in the American Le Mans series due to mechanical, not engine problems. I have seen the new 2014 Jag F type and have placed an order. I am thinking of trading in a 911S ('06)cab (FMV $45k) and a '05 Turbo Porsche SUV (FMV $25k)that has held it price better since it had a 4.5ltr V8 , that won the DP Rolex 24 several years ago, but Porsche dropped its' backing in 2013. the 4.5 or 4.8 V8 produce 450-550 HP @ 460 plus #'s of torque. Our three Jags (-05,08,11(5.0)) have been good and reliable, knock on wood.So it looks like we will go and put our money on the uncoming Jags. India is trying to show up its former boss (UK) and has the $$$$. VW has put its money into Audi, and the 911's may not be getting the assistance they need to compete with the supercar V 8 and V 10; VW just want to get its money back on the Porsche buyers. We put over $125k in Porsche's and got back 1/2 our investment. Sounds like 2008 all over again!"

Pros: "Fast, stable, solid"

Cons: "better infotainment system needed."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"No doubt this car is a sexy beast. The only knock is that the technology in the entertainment system lacks. The lack basic satellite radio or an app based system today is surprising in a 92K base car. Some features are available with an upgrade. Other than that there is everything to like."
