Jaguar F-Type Coupe

There's something about the Jaguar F-Type Coupe ($65,000 and up) that appeals to us somewhere deep down — maybe it's the gorgeous lines leading back to the rearward cabin, or maybe it's the sound of that throaty 5.0-liter supercharged V8 revving to 5,000-plus RPMs. Either way, this fine piece of British metal is one beautiful beast, whether it's standing still, or tearing down the track. The R variant — which, if we're being honest, is all we really care about — features the aforementioned V8 producing all of 550 horsepower, in addition to a lot of race-inspired kit (things like adaptive suspension, electronic active differential, 15-inch brakes, and much more). It will hit 60mph in just four seconds, and reaches a top speed of 186. Of course, you could go with either of its V6-powered cheaper siblings, but who'd want to do that?

  • 2014 BMW 2 Series Coupe

    The sometimes-maligned BMW 1 Series is dead — long live the 2014 BMW 2 Series Coupe ($32,000-$43,000). In an attempt to reconfigure the compact segment of their brand, BMW will now be replacing their more economically-priced line with the 220i Coupe and the M235i Coupe. These cars, sporting a 184 horsepower four-cylinder engine and a 326 horsepower six-cylinder inline engine respectively, have been restyled and retooled from the ground up. The cars are each a bit wider and longer than their 1-Series predecessors, and boast better aerodynamics, handling, and more. Overall what you'll find is a line of compacts made to be more enjoyable to drive, and a lot more exciting looking.

  • BMW i3

    While it probably won't score you any style points, the BMW i3 ($41,350) will definitely get you to work without so much as glancing at a fuel pump. This rear-wheel-drive four-seater gets its power from an electric engine producing 170 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque — not too shabby. It has a nearly 100-mile range on a single charge, and accelerates up to 60 mph in a fairly-impressive seven seconds. Much of its efficiency comes from lightweight construction (the combination carbon fiber and plastic passenger compartment is stronger than steel), resulting in an only 2,700 pound weight. For those worried about getting stranded in the commuter lane with a dead battery, they offer a gas generator. But that kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it?
