Alternatives

What alternatives should I consider to a used Jaguar F-Type coupe?

To buy new, the Jaguar F-Type is priced between a Porsche 718 Cayman and a 911 coupé but, because it isn’t as good at holding on to its value, you can pick up a used V6 example for roughly the same as, if not less than, an equivalent Cayman. To drive, it’s not quite as sharp as the Porsche and nor is its infotainment system as good, but as an object of desire it’s not difficult to see why the Jaguar might still take your fancy.

Those considering a V8 or SVR might find themselves tempted by a Porsche 911 or Audi R8 for a similar amount of money. Both are arguably better all-rounders than the Jaguar, if lacking in some of its unashamed exuberance.

Overview

The Jaguar F-Type is a fine sports car and a real head-turner, but does it make sense as a used buy?

  • Looks great
  • Sounds amazing
  • Good value
  • Some rivals are better to drive
  • Poor infotainment system on early cars
  • Still depreciating
