Beautifully stitched leather melds cleanly with robust-feeling plastic and metal trim, doors shut firmly and solidly, and the controls all seem meaty and durable in hand.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Performance

Ample torque is readily available from a couple thousand rpm, so the slightest right-toe twitch delivers serious thrust.
by Car and Driver (Apr, 2013)
city, 23 mpg highway, and 18 mpg combined. It's not super-thirsty for its performance level, but it won't win you any Earth-loving friends, eithe.

Power sport seats have manual fore/aft adjustments to save weight, but upgraded "Performance" seats are an option, as is full power adjustment.

Powertrain

In compensation, extra effort was invested in making the eight-speed ZF automatic a truly willing friend in speed.

There's a supercharged V-8, as well as a pair of new supercharged V-6s-set apart by twin inboard exhausts, while the V-8 has quad exhausts, mounted outboard.

5.0-LITER SUPERCHARGED V8 ENGINEThe F-Type is filled with innovative features, but its ultra-performance credentials are assured by its 495-horsepower supercharged alloy-block V8.
by KBB (Aug, 2013)

Handling

The steering is exceptionally direct and precise, and the sharp, immediate turn-in was impressive, but it also felt twitchy.

The steering is very sharp, with quick reactions that give the two-seater a slot-car feel when the road becomes twisty.

You can also shift manually with steering-wheel paddles or the gear-selector lever.

Engine

A supercharged V-6 powers the base and S trim levels, and a supercharged V-8 propels the F-Type V8 S. I drove S trim versions of both engines, on a track as well as the roads around Seattle.

The V-6 S’s extra power is only noticeable at the top of the rev range, although the chassis upgrades should be considered mandatory for anyone with track-day intentions.
by Car and Driver (Apr, 2013)

Interior

The controls are high on the door panels where they're easily seen and operated … but not very elegant looking.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
Cargo and cabin storage space aren't the F-Type's strong suit.
by cars.com (Oct, 2013)
An in-dash audio system is trivial when four round pipes on the tail-end of a vehicle sound this good.
