The F-Type has revived Jaguar's true sportscar heritage.
A two-seat rear-driver, in either coupe or roadster form, the F-Type is a gorgeous piece of sculpture and a bad-ass piece of machinery.
The closest cars in concept and execution to the F-Type are Porsche's 718 twins, the Boxster and Cayman; they're outstanding machines with a voluptuous look and impeccable handling, especially in S trim.
We'd also put the Porsche 911 on the short list of contenders for those who are intrigued, but not yet completely sold, on the F-Type.
The BMW Z4 is close in size and mission, but doesn't have the heritage of the Jaguar roadster—and both it and the Mercedes-Benz SLC have power folding hardtops, not strictly in the traditional, classic sports-car mold, either.
The car that has to be driven to match the F-Type's bawdy looks and ballsy performance? The Corvette, of course.
