Sad knowing they stopped production and went to the F-Type which is more like the sky. Perspective, I've owned 2 new BMW's, GST Spyder, Infinity, Nissans, Mopars,= (Challengers) 5.O Stang, Jeeps. THIS IS BY FAR, the best car I've owned. If you are on the fence get one now before they become extinct. I purchased a 2013 w/less than 20K XK Touring Coupe, never liked the spine look of the Convertible top (except on an Aston DB9 or M60. I cannot find a purpose for any HP over 400, unless you track it all the time. Realistically, you can't use the power except in very rare spots.
So I found the fit of the cabin to be perfect, the 2 + 2 is actually hilarious and a good conversation piece, just invite a friend over 3 feet tall to try and sit back there. The Jag rumble from the exhaust is exhilarating to say the least, even at 2500 rpms, then full throttle blows the mind. Tight suspension, steering, and response. Jag got the 3rd gen of this car right for sure. All the features you want come standard. I cannot say enough about the look, slim, slammed, sleek, the body lines are pure art. Gas mileage might be an issue, but if you can't spring for the high ox fuel then you might want to skip any performance car. So basically if you want a very well built, fast, and beautiful car get one. Just bury the though of gasoline all together so you can enjoy the ride. Another small note, the information system is very slow in response, but why be in a hurry? you're in a jag.
