The F-Type is a modern homage to Jaguar’s rich legacy of speed and elegance, in particular the famed E-Type.

As the earliest F-Types have seen depreciation make them more attainable, a question arises in the minds of classic car aficionados: Does the Jaguar F-Type hold potential as a thoroughly driveable investment?
