The F-Type base trim and F-Type S models are available in coupe and convertible body styles. The F-Type V8 S is only available as a convertible, and the R Coupe only comes as a coupe. Rear-wheel drive is standard with all models.

2015 Jaguar F-Type Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Jaguar F-Type or 2015 Chevrolet Corvette?

Just like the F-Type, the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette has nimble handling and powerful V8 engines, but the Chevrolet also provides more cargo space and a quality cabin. The F-Type has a slightly higher reliability rating and better fuel economy than the Vette. Both cars have a lot to offer, so you may have to let your personal preferences be the deciding factor.

Which Is Better: 2015 Jaguar F-Type or 2015 Porsche Boxster?

The 2015 Porsche Boxster is one of the most highly rated cars in the luxury sports car class. It’s a spirited performer with a premium interior and a superb reliability rating. The F-Pace offers more horsepower, but that doesn’t mean the Boxster is struggling to keep up. Additionally, both cars make poor cargo carriers.
