    That's quite a car. Buyers won't be lacking for performance.

    I can't get over how massive it looks in comparison to the D-Type! It looks like it has mumps!

    I believe I saw this car on a Jay Leno episode. I do love the new Jags.

    What I do not get is how Jaguar is able to get away with high pricing

    Even when all of their cars were crap, they were somehow able to maintain their snob appeal.

    Yes. Here is a quick chop of what the F should look like. Cars today have sides that are too tall...

    I like low profiles on sports cars.

    The D-type is a tiny car when you see it in the metal, close up - but safety standards have moved on, both for racing cars and road cars.

    This is the kind of stuff Buick should be doing. Instead, we get more of the same with re-configured cup holders.

    You may not but plenty do. No car is desirable to everyone.

    $50,000 more and the same 0-60 as an SLS AMG GT.

    This is a super car. It's beautiful. And it's RARE. It may not be desirable to you, but it's desirable for a lot of people.

    For me, F-Type is one of the very few cars I would overlook my #1 rule of buying a car -- that I have to fit comfortably. It is a VERY tight fit for me. But I'd overlook that one bit to own and drive one of these gorgeous cars.
    Deposit placed... Awaiting Model 3!!!

    If someone said they'dtrade me this car for one night with my wife, I'd tell them they could have her for the weekend... They could keep her straight up for the D-Type.
