Now coming to the end of its life after over a decade in production, the Jaguar F-Type is the last in a long line of traditional sports cars from the brand. It’s available as the coupe you see here or as a convertible reviewed elsewhere on this site, both of which are strict two seaters.

A 2020 facelift tweaked the styling and trimmed the engine range, with the previously available V6 being dropped. That leaves the choice of a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine in the P300, or two supercharged 5.0-litre V8s in the P450 and P575.

All get eight-speed automatic gearboxes with the P300 rear-wheel drive only, P575 all-wheel drive only and P450 giving you a choice. Trims are limited, with R Design your only option if you want a P300, and 75 for the V8s. Price and performance wise, they sit somewhere between Porsche Cayman and 911.

Of course, there are plenty of rivals outside of Porsche. You might also want to consider the Parkers award-winning Alpine A110, Ford Mustang and Toyota Supra at the lower end of the range. Those with a bit more money to spend might want to think about the Aston Martin Vantage, Audi R8 and Maserati GranTurismo. Of course, a BMW M4 or Audi RS5 combines F-Type baiting performance with a bit more usability.

So, is the Jaguar F-Type Coupe a charming reminder of what the brand was known for before embarking on an all-electric future? Alternatively, is it a throwback that’s grossly outclassed by the rivals we mentioned above? Find out in our multi-page review that covers every area of the car over the next few pages.

We’ll tell you exactly how quick it is, how well it goes around corners and if you’ll have any fun in the process. You’ll also learn all about the interior, both in terms of practicality and whether it feels worth the cash, and what it’ll cost you. Remember, this Jaguar F-Type review is for the Coupe, with the F-Type Convertible here.
