The question: is the Jaguar F-Type the best looking new car for 2013? I work at a Jaguar and Land Rover Dealership; so my opinion is ultimately biased. The answer, if you ask me, is YES.
There were a lot of new lookers this year. Some of the ones that top my list were: Porsche Cayman/Boxter, Chevy Corvette, F12berlinetta, Subaru BRZ/Scion FR-S, MB CLA, and Ford's Fusion.
The price range for these cars is from the low 20's to the mid 300's. The cars are all lookers. However bad angles can be found on all of them, except the Jag. The MB and Ford are automatically out because they have 4-doors. 4-door cars can look beautiful, but when was the last time you saw one on a 12 year old's wall? They just don't grab you like or look as good as a coupe/convertible. The Corvette has just a few too many hard lines. I'm unsure of my feelings on the rear of the FR-S/BRZ; where the trunk and bumper meet-up doesn't look quite right. I love the more newly sculpted side, and more aggressive front end of the Porsche, but side from the center exhaust the rear end still looks a bit like design vomit. The rear design came out fast, at once, and ends the car's lines too abruptly. Ferraris are always beautiful, if not for the body then definitely for the badge. I have to say the F12 looks great from all vantages, except one, the low and head on angle. It looks like a grinning toothless jack-o-lantern.
I know I am going to get some slack for what I have said. What do you think? To sway you, here are some shots of the F-Type I took when I had a V8-S this weekend.
