How is the 2014 Jaguar F-Type behind the wheel? We'd love to tell you--but we can't, just yet. We will soon.

In the meantime, we can talk about the car's stats and how it stacks up--on paper--to its key rivals in the sports car world.

What exactly does the F-Type compete with? Is it as fast as its price tag would indicate? Can a Jaguar two-seater convertible take on the legendary Porsche 911?

All of these questions and more are answered in this chat between High Gear Media's editorial director Marty Padgett, social media manager Joel Feder, and senior editor Nelson Ireson.

For more on the F-Type, including a look at its history, its stats, and, soon, its driving qualities, check out our 30 Days of 2014 Jaguar F-Type coverage. And don't miss our first drive review (and video) with the car tomorrow!
