    Jaguar F type Opinions

    Anyone on here own an F-type? Opinions?

    My wife has a 2014 V6S convertible. It’s a great little car. It has some decent technology, comes in rwd or awd, standard V6, V6S or V8. Active exhaust with ability to run in quiet or loud (track) mode. The V6S is a supercharged 380hp/400trq with an 8sp sequential trans (with paddles). The S model has brake and suspension package. The V8R is a beast (500 hp). Very fun car.

    Just got one 3 days ago V8S. It’s a fun car with a good set of balls. I was shocked at how hard it pulls, and the trans it crazy. Not a dual clutch but so close it’s scary.

    Marty, and Red Snake,

    Those are awesome. Now that Dodge is out of the game, other manufacturers are picking up the slack. Fantastic stuff.

    I love roadsters in general and really like the styling Jag crafted for this one.
    The previous XK series(both generations) were nice but not my cup of tea being more touring/luxury oriented.
    When this F-type came out i had high hopes that it would be a good future daily for me once they depreciated a bit.
    Unfortunately, like the XK they were not available for the the first few years(13,14,15) with a manual transmission so i quickly dismissed the idea and forgot about em.

    Last year i came across a random article about one with a manual trans and was like WTF?!?!
    Turns out they started offering stick on the Base & S models in 2016
    Now they have been on my radar for the past year and i hope to snag one in the next couple years once they dip into the mid-30's
