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!

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.

I just purchased the 21 F-Type First Edition and I recently sold a 911. The changes to the exterior especially the front end was enough for me to convert to Jaguar and try something new. I will say they have an incredible warranty and maintenance program. 5-years including maintenance and telematics. I don't plan to own the car that long so I'm not worried about it. The new TFT configurable gauges are very cool and the new adaptive headlights impressive.

I can't afford new so I encourage rich folks to buy new so we have used ones to choose from in the future. That being said I would never buy anything but the top of the line trim/performance level of any car so another 4 banger being sold won't help me in the future.

What convinced me to buy new rather than used or "certified pre-owned" was finding out that Jaguar was offering a large incentive payment. In USA (not sure about other locations). Jaguar is paying $6K towards new 4 cylinder F-Types and $8K towards 6 and 8 cylinder F-Types, good until March 31, 2021. My understanding is that it is only valid on vehicles sold (not just ordered) by that date.
Strange thing is that several dealers I spoke with were and remained unaware of the incentive, which I had read about on the internet. I bought elsewhere from a more clued-in dealer and got $8K off my new V6 convertible. When I figured in the new car experience, the 60K miles, 5 year (extendible to 7 years) warranty, frees services for 5 years and free roadside assistance, it seemed like a deal worth doing. It actually worked out cheaper than buying a used 2020 (registered 2019) with mileage, and paying for the certification needed to buy another year of warranty to get back to 4 years, plus I got the color, etc that I wanted.

FWIW, I picked up a 32,000 mile F-Type R 2016 AWD for $36k. I guess it just depends on where you want to put your chips!

Just for the record, when I bought my 2014 F-Type base four years ago the 2017 models were out, (February). I paid about 55% of the original sticker price for the 7,000 mile car but did have a trade-in which I felt they gave a fair price for. The used Porsches and Audis I looked at were similar. Sports cars just plain take a beating the first few years. People with loads of money are not bothered by that. There are lower priced cars if you search but some have had the H beat out of them or are high mileage. I bought my F-Type for the long run. It's not a year round commuter car but a warm weather seasonal cruiser. Sometimes when I park it and go into a shop or restaurant there is a crowd of people looking it over when I come back. Do what your comfortable with.

I have done my fair share of research on the F-Type over the past couple years and their value does tend to drop quite a bit. Many people argue that the 2021 does not look as good as the previous models. Many gripes about the headlights. My opinion is that I actually love the 2021 F-Type and have no problem with the looks. However, I wish they did not tone the exhaust note down compared to the previous models. I am actually trying to get on track to be able to purchase a sports car for myself for Christmas this year. Bought my wife a Jaguar E-Pace in June 2020 so not sure I want two jags in the driveway. The only other car I am considering that is similar in price to the Jaguar F-Type is the 2021 Lexus LC500 Performance Package. The car will probably be my daily driver and I have heard nothing but great things about the LC500. Hopefully I won't get a lot of heat for mentioning the LC500 but if you have not seen it then it is worth checking out. And if by some miracle I win the Mega Millions then I definitely wouldn't mind ordering myself the new Maserati MC20 sports car that just came out. If you have not seen this car then go look it up on Youtube.
