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 2014 BMW Z4 offers a pleasant balance of luxury, comfort, and sport, but it is at the pricier end of the roadster spectrum.
