Let’s face it; the Jaguar F-Type has been on the minds of almost every car enthusiast from the moment it was launched and the thoughts have been near 100% positive. Can this car continue to impress day in and day out now that it has aged a bit? The hot sports car from Jaguar made its debut in 2013 and has been on the streets long enough for consumers to form an opinion. We have to ask the question, are consumers as thrilled with the car after being behind the wheel for almost three years now?
In just three short years the big cat has blossomed into a fire breathing dragon that may be ready to take on the world with its 550 horsepower Supercharged V8 engine. Performance has increased and now considered a serious contender. And the rumors are getting stronger every day that Jaguar will indeed build the Super F-Type I’ve been talking about, with north of 600 horsepower, so I’m asking “What are they waiting on”?
Jaguar has just announced the new crossover vehicle called F-Pace that was inspired by the F-Type and the all-new XE sedan is coming soon, so will the F-Type get a fresh re design or will it just more get more growl under the hood? (That would be fine with me) Maybe Jaguar will morph the F-Type into a larger grand touring sports car. There are reports that the XK that is being replaced may return as a stretched F-Type. Either way the F-Type R Coupe is one fabulous car that will continue to impress anyone who drives it.
Go take a test drive and you will know that kind of excitement that everyone is talking about, but with the improved engineering and reliability that Jaguar has regained the long term reviews will also impress. Kelly Blue Book (KBB.com) already has the F-Type listed as a 7.5 of 10 and a consumer rating of 9.4 of 10. The site also says the fair market value for a used F-Type is in the mid $80K range, and that makes it an attractive option for the sports minded consumer who wants some serious performance in the garage.
