Jaguar is synonymous with sports cars, though the name first appeared in 1935 on a sedan. A decades-long run of desirable XK and E-Type coupes and convertibles made sure of this brand association, though the subsequent XJS and XK8 models typically leaned toward luxury rather than performance.
The company corrected course with the debut of the F-Type for the 2014 model year. Smaller and more focused on performance than grand touring, the F-Type was the first pure Jaguar sports car since the Nixon administration. Now, the automaker updates the 2021 Jaguar F-TYPE coupe and convertible with fresh styling, a higher-tech cabin, and a simplified lineup including a reworked and more powerful F-Type R model. Prices range from $61,600 for a P300 Coupe to $105,900 for an F-Type R Convertible, without options or the $1,150 destination charge. Obviously, you can spend more than that. Take our test car, for example. It was the 2021 Jaguar F-TYPE R Coupe loaded up with extras. The special Sorrento Yellow paint cost $4,550 alone. All in, it tallied up to $117,190, making it quite the pricey tallyho.
