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.

They don't hold their value well and with the certified used car program you can pick up a lightly used model for much less and still have some warranty protection. I did that with a 2015 (bought in 2017) and now a 2017 S. I have had not a problem with either one and the dealer has been great. Both were purchased for less then 40% off the new price. Just my two cents.... OH and the 2015 only had 11k miles on it.

I've owned several Jags. Been a Jag fan all my life. Early years had some quality control issues. Hate to say it, but Ford's tenure of ownership did a lot for the brand. (styling not one of them). They never have held their value. Great news for us Jag fans. So long as you are not one who has to only buy new. Pre-owned a fabulous value!

Appreciate your thoughts Mike. Incidentally my first choice was a pre-owned however I actually began to prefer the new design enhancements of the 2021, especially the front end. Only problem now is there are no Jag dealers who seem interested in placing a factory order for me since they are trying to move the outgoing 2020s off the lot (and there are very few 2021s to choose from currently).

There is one dealer outside of my state who may be able to do it for me (had contacted them for some additional pics on one of their in-stock vehicles) however would prefer to go in state.

If anyone has any tips on how to get a factory order going I’m all ears!

I had same issue when I went to get mine. Car is very limited and what they had in stock I did not like at all. I ended up ordering what I wanted from dealer. I placed order 11/1/17, didn’t take delivery until 06/15/18 as a 2019 model. Jaguar had stopped taking orders since they were doing minor changes and had to wait for newer model. Moral of this, be prepared to wait. I’m in miami, got it thru The Collextion dealership. They will take your order, but there will be waiting. I got the 4 turbo, thinking of upgrading to the V8 R when my lease is up in 6 months. Will probably have to order that too because there’s just not much in stock and I’m very particular as to the interior color.

IF you buy a new Jag F type you are going to throw 10-20-30k down the tubes...wait until mid 2021 and it will be tens of thousands less. .... unless you have money to burn ..I have a 2017 F type S 23k miles that was 86k new...i got for 44k in 2020. If you use internet, CarGuru, those type of websites you can find whatever you want... There are some lemon-Buyback title branded cars going around on the internet also...with issues like Entertainment system problems - always fixed and Certified by Jaguar - but these cars are 10-15k less than the av. price...nothing wrong with them. however, if you plan only to own a short time, getting rid of a branded title to a dealer is next to impossible - they dont want the hassel. and if you sell privately you will be explaining constantly and low balled on price. :)

Yes I’m aware, however I have a lease. I didn’t buy one I have now. That’s up in six months and I’m not goin back to get an older model when I have a 2019 now. I prefer the looks of the 2021. If i could find a 2021 R used then that would be great, but as I said they are very scarce.

My lease is up in June 2021. So I have time. Hopefully there will be some used ones around by then.
