Yep. Drove one for two yearsÖa 2016 F-Type S. Fantastic car. Fast, handles well, and basically sex on wheels. Probably one of the best looking cars Iíve ever owned (and Iíve owned a few). The V6 has plenty of power and a great sound too. Letting off the gas and hearing the exhaust pop and crackle the way it does is intoxicating. The only minor criticism I have is that the cabin is just a little tight for long trips. I took it up to Arkansas which is 5 hours from me to visit my kid at college and there were times I wished for a bit more room, but not much. Never a single issue with it either. The upside was that at least one of my sonís gal pals asked him if she could have my number.

Iím going to replace my Mercedes in March and going back to an F-Type (along with a newer Vette or an E-Class AMG) is definitely a consideration. Youíd be very happy with an S or a model called the 400.

Thatís for the info Iron Chef. Every thing I see and read say that are amazing cars and a used one is a great value. Would definitely get a certified use one for the extra year warranty.

I absolutely love them and was actively looking to purchase one when my C7 fell in my lap. Beautiful cars.
