Verdict – The Jaguar F-Type is a sports car with massive emotional appeal. It has a crazy list of equipment and is as luxurious as much as it is sporty. However the high equipment list adds to weight, which robs away the nimbleness offered by the Porsche 911. But the F-Type really doesn’t have to beat the Porsche 911, a car which has witnessed heavy evolution. The F-Type starts from scratch and needs to carve its own identity in the sports car segment. Something it manages to do in style and aural symphony. The F-Type might not be the fastest car in its segment around the track, but it offers the same level of driver thrill, with excellent comfort and good agility. The F-Type showcases the engineering capability of Jaguar and how the company can make really wild cats, which are ferocious and insane fun.

The Jaguar F-Type is fast, loud, surefooted and comfortable. It is a fitting successor to the legendary E-Type.
