Indian automaker Tata, who also rescued Land Rover from Ford, is re-establishing Jaguar (correctly pronounced “jag-u-are”) as a fine, fast, fun car. A wonderful example is the F-Type, the spiritual descendant of the iconic E-Type. As was the case with the “E,” coupe and convertible F-Types are offered, with three engine options — a turbocharged 296-hp 4-cylinder; a supercharged 340-hp V6; or a 380-hp supercharged V6 — to choose from. Sadly, manual transmissions are no longer available, resulting in shrieks of joy from Gen Z valets who lack the hand-foot coordination required to properly operate a stick shift vehicle. While the F-Type does not have the miles-long hood of the E-Type, it is nonetheless a very attractive piece of work. Rear-wheel drive allows you to fling the F-Type into corners with the windows down to rejoice in the glorious exhaust that conjures up visions of a WW2 Spitfire fighter plane as the kiddies bounce to and fro in the tiny rear seat. The Jag F-Type is fun reborn; JaguarUSA.com.
