TCC’s Bottom Line
Sexy, light, and balanced, the 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C is at home when pushed hard. It sure isn’t practical or comfortable for everyday driving. The 2017 BMW i8 is a stunning coupe with gull-wing doors that hides a slew of advanced technology, though the design may render its energy-efficient plug-in hybrid powertrain all but irrelevant. The 2018 Jaguar F-Type is a thrilling sports car with style to match.
