The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.4
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 Mercedes-Benz SLK is the least polarizing of the roadsters, but there's enough urgency to go with its elegant, mini-SL charm.
