2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe: Dream Car, Dream On
July 24, 2014
Just look at it, glinting in the sun. You can see its muscles tensing, as if it's about to leap into something heart-pounding and wonderful. The 2015 Jaguar F-Type R Coupe is like a beautifully sculpted British action-movie star who expects to be treated to a certain kind of lifestyle. Sadly, it's one I don't currently have.
Dream cars work best in dream lives, and bringing the Jaguar F-Type into my reality is nothing short of cruel. I'm a suburbanite, not a woman with an upscale farmhouse at the end of a winding canyon road near the Sonoma coast. I don't have time for long, languorous weekend drives up the Mendocino coast, or 90-mph sprints across the heartland. I'd need more time at driving school to live up to this car's potential.
The next time I have the good fortune to take our Jaguar out for the weekend, I'm going to have to provide the roads and destinations it prefers. Otherwise, I'm pretty sure it will dump me, leaving only its snarl to remember it by.
