WOW! WOW! WOW! IT'S GOOD TO BE BAD!

Our 2018 FType R Dynamic sure makes it fun to be bad! In the Caldera Red it's a standout with sexy good looks. The black package on red makes it look aggressive and fast! The high performance seats are comfortable and adjust to fit for a perfect driving position. The all leather red and black interior is well made and looks great with the red exterior. The touchs of carbon fiber in the cabin are very tasteful. We like the panaramic roof with the blind that can be opened or closed. The trunk has 14 square feet of space without a spare tire which is considerable for a sports car. The 380 hp 6 cylinder has plenty of power with a supercharger . There is no lag when you want the power. The deplorable spoiler rises up at 60 mph and stays up until you slow to 55 mph. The exhaust sounds so good and even better in the dynamic mode. This is a a very engaging car to drive and the dynamics contribute to the over all experience.

Have owned many cars, just bought my 1st Jaguar

I've owned 8 Corvettes, an M3, M4, a 528, Porsche 911 C4S, an Audi A4, Audi A5, Mercedes E550, Cadillac ATS4, a Volvo, three VWs, many pick up trucks and SUVs, so I have a lot of varied experience with different types of vehicles. Two weeks ago I bought my first Jaguar, an F Type R convertible. So far I love the car. It looks good, it's really fast, ride is comfortable for what it is and it sounds great. Let me address a couple of the complaints I've seen online. First, that the interior is cramped. Based on my experience it's no more cramped than other sports cars I've owned and driven. In fact it feels more spacious than the 2017 C7 Grand Sport I also own. The Vette has more/better tech. Technology is the one area I think the Jag is lacking. The trunk space is very limited but it's a sports car. I've seen online comments that if your bag is bigger than a loaf of bread it won't fit. Not true. You can fit a couple of overnight bags in the trunk of my convertible. A word about the exhaust sound. It seems everyone loves the extra loud exhaust. I do to...sometimes. The good news is that you can have it both ways. In "normal" mode it just has a nice growl and is actually rather quiet. But put it in dynamic mode and it has a completely different personality. I really like the fact you can have it both ways. Quiet or loud, beauty or beast, at least on the 2018. The only piece of the puzzle missing at this point is reliability. If it proves to be reliable I'll have no regrets. Time will tell.

Lots of initial problems

Check engine light came on the first week I got it. It was a loose electrical connection. It was at the dealers for 2 days to fix the problem. After I picked it up, the check engine light came on again. This time it was at the dealers for 1 week. It needed a replacement of a valve timer module and timing belt. After I got it back, 3 days later, the passenger seat belt spring broke, so it doesn't retract. So I've owned the car 3 weeks and it will have to go back to the dealer. All in all, I love the car. Just wish it had better initial reliability.

I purchased the 2018 Jaguar F-Type 400 Sport

Unbelievable styling , exterior and interior. Performance far superior to previously owned Porsche and BMW . A truely refined high performance gentleman?s sports car. When the driver of a Maserati asks you about the car you know it commands attention from car aficionados.

Most exilerating car I?ve ever driven

Driving this car gives me a thrill and excitement beyond imagination. The sound is truly one of the best in a sports/muscle car category and very stylish interior and exterior. It responds very well, is nimble and makes you want to drive a it more. I keep the cat in dynamic Sport Mode.

Most fun car I?ve ever owned

I looked at other cars before I purchased this one, some faster, some more refined, but none could put a smile on my face like this one. The jaw dropping looks and beautiful exhaust have people stopping in traffic to ask me about it. It?s fast enough to have fun when you need it, reliable enough as a daily driver, comfortable enough for weekend trips with the wife, and stunning when you pull up to the valet. With 5 years of free maintenance from Jag, how could you go wrong. This is my 2nd Jag and I couldn?t be happier.

It?s a Jaaaag

Beautiful lines. Attention to detail and styling inside and out. Very responsive. I drove it from St Petersburg Florida to Missoula Montana, experiencing every weather and driving condition imaginable. Great gas mileage for a performance automobile.
