It's only a 2 seater and quite compact looking so I would have thought it was aiming at the SLK 55 AMG and the Boxster S/Cayman S buyers.
I think the jag offers competitive performance.
The V8 version has a better power to weight ratio then the Porsche 911 S cabriolet PDK. It's also a bit cheaper.
The platform offers room for even faster RS versions in due course.
Tbh I am a bit underwhelmed by how it looks. It could easily be a Honda or Lexus.
Not sur I will ever be in the market for anything like this though. The XF Sportbrake as mentioned previously is more my cup of tea.
it's starting to grow on me but it's no 911 nor is it a classic like the E-Type.
Well, the E-Type was hardly a classic when it came out, and neither was the Porky, it takes time for a car to become a 'classic', by definition.
Any ful gno that.
And the fact that Edukator dislikes it automatically makes it appealing to me.
Given that sort of money, the very last car I'd be looking at would be a 911. Or any Porsche, they've never held any appeal at all. Neither do original E-Types, for that matter, those skinny little tyres in those big wheel arches always look wrong to me.
Silly front bumper but the rest looks fine in the flesh. don't understand the love for Porsche reliability, they go wrong and cost a lot to fix.
Can't imagine spending this much on a 2 seater semi sports car. 30-40k would get me enough to tick that box. New shape Range Rover forr this money.
I work for JLR, trust me the F type and indeed all current JLR vehicles are very nice....in my opinion.
they go wrong and cost a lot to fix.
My experience is the opposite.
I think the Jag is gorgeous, and would have one over a 911 in a heartbeat.
When comparing to the Boxster/Cayman it's a tough call, as the PBS and PCS both drive sublimely......but, and it's a BIG but, reliability would concern me with the Porsche, as would maintenance costs...the engine fragility of the new model is still unknown, but the last model was dreadful....not a concern in the first three years, but afterwards...
I want one ...
maybe they're aimed at the "people who want an F-type" bracket?
I'll wait for the coop
We were running shuttles on a local mountain and we heard a car being driven very, very fast. It came round the corner and slammed on the brakes. It was a bunch of Russian journos testing the new F-type. They were more interested in our bikes and wanted to know all about where we were riding and what type of bikes they were. I offered to swap for a descent but they didn´t take me up on it.
The cars are beautiful in the flesh, Iinside and out. The sound from the exhaust is amazing, real hairs on the back of your neck stuff. It´s not often that I´d turn down a descent on a bike for a drive in a car but I would definitely have swapped my run down the hill for theirs! We heard them driving down from the pass for ages, the engines wailing and tyres screeching.
Brakes, the 'face' on that coop looks like a Japanese manga cat character!
chewk, those Eagle E-Types are just stunningly beautiful, with the wider tyres, the proprtions look absolutely 'right', now.
