SANTA MONICA, California — The 2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S, 2014 Porsche 911 Turbo S, 2014 Audi RS 7, 2014 BMW i8 and 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray are the "Five Best Fun Cars for CEOs," according to Edmunds and Chief Executive.

The five are "an intelligent range of new or recently refreshed selections," according to Edmunds' Vice President of Editorial and Editor in Chief Scott Oldham and Chief Executive's William J. Holstein.

Corvette's Stingray was praised for its ability to "command respect.

"You've worked long and hard and you deserve to enjoy the fruits of your labor," the story said. "Buying a fun, weekend car is one obvious way to do that. Never mind what they might think at the office. This is for your precious personal time."

The 2014 Jaguar F-Type V8 S, with an $88,615 price tag, is designed to "put a smile on your face every time you get in," the authors said. It tells the world "you love stylish performance."

Porsche's 2014 911 Turbo S telegraphs the message: "You seek the ultimate." The test car is priced at $210,620.

The 2014 Audi RS 7 churns out 560 horsepower and tells the world "you demand excellence."

BMW's plug-in hybrid, the 2014 i8 is for the "Renaissance CEO" who appreciates style, performance and cutting-edge technology. The test car is priced at $135,700.

America's sole representative among the five is the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray convertible. Its owners are "serious about torque." The test car is priced at $66,080.

Also noted by the authors: "At this price, you could buy matching His and Hers models for less than the cost of the Porsche Turbo S and still have cash left over."

Edmunds says: A helpful list, not just for CEOs, but all car shoppers with a playful side and a lot of cash.
