30 Days Of The 2014 Jaguar F-Type

  • Jaguar C-X16 Concept

    We’re finally at the end of our long journey looking into every facet of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type, from the stunning sports car’s heritage to its design, specification and engineering. In this final installment of our 30 Days of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type coverage, we look at what the future holds for the car. So, just what does that future entail? The most logical next step is the launch of an F-Type Coupe, something that’s been mooted ever since the reveal of the F-Type-previewing C-X16 concept car at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show, which itself was a coupe. However, the biggest...

    Jaguar Vs. Porsche Boxster And 911: 30 Days Of F-Type

    We're still eager to do a seat-to-seat, back-to-back comparison between the standard-bearing Porsche Boxster and the all-new 2014 Jaguar F-Type. While there's really no substitute for that time behind the wheel—especially when we're talking about sports cars—in the meantime we're taking...

    2014 Jaguar F-Type On The Road, On Video: 30 Days Of F-Type

    We've explained the 2014 Jaguar F-Type's street-biased nature, but a little illustration never hurts, right?

    2014 Jaguar F-Type Differentials, Electronic Aids: 30 Days Of F-Type

    While perhaps not as nimble or engaging as some lighter, less potent sports cars, the 2014 Jaguar F-Type makes fantastic use of its heady 340, 380, or 495 horsepower. How does it do it? Through smart differentials and electronic aids, mostly. Huge rear tires, especially on F-Type V8 S models, also...

    2014 Jaguar F-Type Suspension: 30 Days Of F-Type

    There's a lot more to building a fast road car than just dropping a powerful engine in a relatively light body. In fact, there's some very complex math that goes into making a car handle well. The engineers of the 2014 F-Type have done their math well. Stable, predictable, and hugely fun to drive...

  • 2014 Jaguar F-Type engineering displays

    Though you wouldn't know it to look at it, the last generation of the Jaguar XJ was largely made of aluminum and surprisingly light for its size and power. In fact, the XJ with a supercharged V-8 only weighed about 500 pounds more than the 2014 F-Type. In other words, Jaguar knows a thing or two about building cars out of aluminum. The F-Type takes that knowledge to the next level, offering the best of the company's aluminum platform engineering yet. An evolution of Jaguar's fourth-generation aluminum architecture, the core structure of the F-Type is the most rigid Jaguar has ever built. Up...

    Jaguar’s new F-Type presents buyers with an interesting proposition. Due to a variety of engine options ranging from naturally aspirated V-6s to supercharged V-8s, Jaguar has been able to stagger pricing of its F-Type so that it competes against a much wider variety of models than it could...

    E-Type To F-Type, The Legend: 30 Days Of 2014 Jaguar F-Type

    Launched in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type became an icon almost instantly. It's been displayed in New York's Museum of Modern Art and was the third car to enter MoMA's permanent collection, after a 1948 Cisitalia 202 and a 1990 Ferrari F1 car. The E-Type sprang from a pair of concept cars in 1957 and...

  • 30 Days of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type

    Tying the present to the past is sometimes easy, sometimes not. With cars there's often a direct lineage to follow. In the case of the 2014 Jaguar F-Type, tracing its roots is a bit more indirect. Jaguar has been keen to play up the ties to the XK120 and its legendary offspring, the C-Type and D-Type. That might seem like some revisionist history, but in truth, those cars offer the closest parallel to the F-Type in Jaguar's storied past. First, there are the obvious similarities: both are roadsters (though the XK120 was available as a drophead and fixed head coupe--the latter of which is also...
