Hi all,

I’m brand new to Jaguar and have been thinking about picking up a 2021 F-Type, most likely the 4-cylinder (though possibly the 6) in either Carpathien Grey or Portofino Blue with black pack and black wheels.

One thing I’m curious about is the resale value and quality of parts in the new 2021. I had seen a Reddit thread or two that didn’t seem to speak too highly to either of these, at least in comparison to Porsche. So I am curious to know.. does the F-Type generally hold its value if I were to look at selling it say 5 or so years down the line? And should I be terribly concerned with parts quality..? I believe the Reddit thread was from early 2019 so perhaps those concerns are no longer relevant.

Also, for what it’s worth, I’d probably be paying in cash since I’m not the biggest fan of monthly payments. Of course, I realize that buying a new car in cash is not the most common way to do things however I’ve never had car payments in the past (always bought used) and I’m just simply used to not having them.

Appreciate any thoughts!
John

Just look at past models and their value today vs original sales prices. They do not hold their value - great if you want to by a used F-Type. Depreciation curve is steep.

Yeah, I don’t necessarily disagree. I had planned on buying used, but the available options are quite limited and would require a fair bit of ‘settling’, which I just find challenging to do in the $60k+ price range.
