After a long absence, Jaguar has finally offered the F-Type, a successor to the legendary sports car E-Type. When the model debuted in 1961, the E-Type caused a sensation and quickly became an icon of the sixties. With sleek looks, high performance and competitive pricing, it was the sports car everyone dreamed of owning.
However, emission control requirements, fuel consumption, and financial problems resulting in bad morale and declining quality sent the E-Type to its demise.
However, the three new models are all two door convertibles with front engine rear-wheel-drive with 8-speed paddle shift automatic transmission. To enhance fuel economy, an Intelligent Stop Start system stops the engine during idle and starts when the gas pedal is pressed. Wow!
