The Jag F-Type is stunningly gorgeous.

I have the sudden desire to make money hand over fist so I can go buy one new. Priced below the 911 but with better performance (they even kept hydraulic power steering for the feel!) and much, much better looks (and I'm a Porsche fan!). Ooooooh my, yes!!

Now pardon me, I need some alone time...

I'd like to see the whole thing before making a decision, but it's off to a good start.

If you can wait 5 years, they will be on the used car market for $7,000.

Nice car and I can feel the lust. However, it fails my criteria for FUN car; must be able to write it off and without involving the bank, divorce lawyer or insurance company, crawl out of the wreckage and walk to the dealer for a replacement. I could afford the first one, not the second one.

why did it take Jag so long to build a worthy successor?

In reply to mad_machine:

They were too busy dealing with warranty issues with the 70-2010ish jags ?

I guess now we know what the next 12 Aston Martins are going to look like, too.

Side view kinda looks like an S2000. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

Now let's see if they sell it with something other than a slush box in the US.

Being owned by Tata. The Indians have done a damn good job with Jag (XF, XJ, F-Type) and the quality is way, way up as well.

Sad to see no manual trans available. A blower V6 with a nice exhaust could sound quite nice, now let me shift it myself!

SN95/302, you have had a stay of execution, for now...

Manual transmission is only going to be available on the coupe.

Jag has been pretty clear that they want to keep a manual option in the car on the bigger motors and with the higher spec packages.

stunning is a strong word. One I would not use. Kinda interesting, but it will get lost in the rich neighborhoods along with all of the other auto trans cars that creep along at speeds that have nothing to do with the car- just the image.

One more image car that Paris can buy.
