2021 Jaguar F-Type vs. Its Competition

2021 Jaguar F-Type R first drive
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The 2021 Jaguar F-Type lives in the rarefied air of high-dollar toys, likely fourth or fifth vehicles for many owners.

Congratulations on your life’s success.

The Porsche 911 was our colleagues’ at Motor Authority’s Best Car To Buy 2020.

It’s nearly perfect in every way.

The Chevy Corvette has a polarizing mid-engine layout this year, and promises to be a handful in every way.

Top trims of the Ford Mustang are weaponized pony cars and hugely fun.

The Audi R8 is a mid-engine masterpiece, and its V-10 engine is likely on its way out.

The BMW Z4 (and related Toyota Supra) are small coupes and convertibles that are engaging to drive.
