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.
For 40 years Jaguar has been capitalizing on the heritage and prestige derived from its legendary sports cars, while not actually having a credible 2-seat sports car in its model line, but the new-for-2014 Jaguar F-Type convertible is meant to change all that. Designed from the ground up to compete with the Porsche 911, the F-Type's aluminum-alloy chassis is covered by sleek, contemporary bodywork that is subtly referential to the legendary E-Type. Under the classically long hood resides one of three different powertrain choices, all supercharged and all featuring an ultra-sophisticated ZF automatic transmission that can be manually shifted via steering-wheel-mounted paddles. The comfortably tight cockpit channels the past and accentuates the future with a dash that houses a large Thin-Film Transistor (TFT) touch-screen.
