Very nice but I'd still take the E-type any day!
I'm going to have to go with Enzo.
At least they didn't do some horrible "retro" version of the E.
Why hasn't a manufacturer done a limited edition reproduction of a classic that has an interior/exterior that is indistinguishable from the original instead of just ANOTHER squared-off retro?
I know many people re-power old cars with modern drivetrains all the time- how is it that no factory has produced one?
Instead, most retros just look like cheap versions that went through the copy machine a few times too many....
Man, I'd be happy if they would just actually make more of those amazing concept cars that never get built!
I CANNOT see this F-thing EVER even coming close favourably comparing with the E-Type Legend.
Now, if you had told me that it was Kia's new sports car I MIGHT be impressed....
I was at a race in Stockton, California the first time I saw an E-jag. It was being driven around the track and allegedly there was a beauty queen in the passengers seat. Nobody saw her.
I doubt the F will have the same impact.
I totally agree with Griffin.
The F-type has nothing from the E-type not spiritually, not in looks and in fact the only thing I can find is that the naming is like how Jaguar did for a period back in the days of D-type and E-type. I think it is rather sad to see this desperate attempt from Jaguar to capitalize on the E-type history and then doing it with that rather mediocre car.
A real spiritual successor to the E-type isn't to be found but the Eagle and Growler "replica" ones come close being modern in technology while having much of the original E-type style.
Entirely too much Aston Martin in the mix. If Jaguar wants to attempt to knock the E-type off its pedestal, they at least need to make the F-type distinctly Jaguar.
"most beautiful car in the world"..? Looks way too much like a Honda S2000. Give me an Aston Martin DB9 any day..!

Aston Martin? There is NO Aston Martin in that car.
Yep, they blew it. The one they touted about and thought about making just under 10 years ago was way better to look at than this
UGLY Just what is the reason for all the new cars having that hugh and ugly maw with side gills. Seems most of the auto stylists graduated from the same class in "styling" school.
I own 3 Jaguars. A SS 100, XK120 FHC and and E-Type flat floor. All three look better that this new disaster.
How extraordinary success can mean certain downfall--the never to be equaled E-Type. Sorry, Jaguar, may as well close shop.
