Want to know what it’s like to drive the new $120,000 Jaguar F-Type Coupe without shelling out the cash? Chris Harris takes the beast around a beautiful road course and a cracking track in this video review. The big question remains, however: is it really better than a Porsche 911?
In short? Yes, the Jaguar F-Type Coupe is better than the current 911. According to Harris, the 911 is the worst its been in a long time at the moment, and it’s a great time for Jaguar to slip a new Coupe into the market.
It’s brilliant to drive both on a track and on a road, and the noise is freaking superb.
The most disappointing part of the F-Type Coupe, however, is the interior. As Harris points out, the F-Type Coupe feels cheap inside.
The fonts on the buttons and the instruments are all different rather than sticking to one cohesive style, and the in-car entertainment offering has been found wanting.
The materials are also cheap and tacky, with a fake carbon fibre finish coating the gear shift, and a fake leather vinyl finish on the glove box.
All is forgiven, however, when you fire it up and take it for a bash around a track. Or just when you look at its amazing exterior styling.
