Our long-term 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe tops the F-Type range when it comes to power, but does the F-Type S provide similar thrills?

    Big grammar [non-permissible content removed] day around here. Remember:

    For me, it would all come down to what roles I'd be expecting the F-Type to fulfill. If I was buying one for the sole purpose of using it as a weekend plaything, it would have to be the R. If I was buying one with the intention of using it as my only car, thus making it my daily driver, I'd have to give some consideration to both the S (V6) and V8 S models. Neither are as quick or hard-core as the R, but they're no slouch either. I know there have been some complaints about the comfort of the LT F-Type (hard seats, stiff ride), and if getting one of the less-powerful models would yield improvements in the comfort and livability of the F-Type, I'd be willing to sacrifice some power, speed, and dynamic capability for a car that would be more enjoyable to live with on a daily basis.

    This is a good comparison, but I've actually read the opposite from other reviewers. Mainly that the S is significantly cheaper and has less of a nose-heavy feeling.

    ...has less of a nose-heavy feeling.

    Many reviewers say the same thing when comparing, say, a Honda Accord 4cyl vs. V6. I would gladly DD a F-Type S V6, with something like an S2000 as a track car. I think the R would be too much car for me.
