Jaguars used to be breathtaking machines with sweeping lines, interiors reminiscent of hand-sewn leather gloves and roaring engines that would be at home in a Spitfire fighter plane. Then Ford acquired the marque and the cars became dowdy, rebadged Taurus sedans. New ownership has restored the glory to Jaguar (“jag-u-are”) with the Jaguar F-Type, created to go toe-to-toe against the Porsche 911. As with the original E-Type, it has just two seats and is available as a coupe or convertible. If you’re up for a grand adventure, you can opt for a snarling 5.0-liter supercharged V8 under that long hood that will get you to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds, and all the way to 200 mph if you dare. Huge Brembo brakes safely get you back to zero. The all-wheel-drive option will tempt you to move to Tennessee so you can drive the Tail Of The Dragon every day; JaguarUSA.com.
