The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jaguar F-Type revives the E-Type's sportscar formula without bowing down to its design ethos--and lives up to the promise of sports car fun in a luxurious environment. The 2013 BMW Z4 is spirited and purposeful, and balances fun and comfort quite well, but it's pricier than other roadsters.
