They are all in that picture!

BTW, I'd consider the Jag a much better cruiser than a Cobra.

All British lineage
AC Cars is British manufacturer, which was used for the original Shelby Cobra

Interestingly , the Elise and Cobra have a lot in common.. both are light weight cars, the Cobra being about 300 pounds more than my Elise (and 500hp)

The Jag is lame, in every way imaginable.. dumping it soon

Those F types are nice in a lot of ways, excellent for some folks. But a bit of a pig by our standards. Just don’t have that free and light feeling we love.

Definitely feels fat. Steering/handling not sporty enough, suspension can be bouncy at times, and overall more uncomfortable to drive than the Elise

I took the Evora S to the local Jag dealer. Drove the F Type back to back to back with the Lotus. The Jag more sophisticated, so many features. Power, that sound.

But on the way home the simplicity and yes lightness of the Evora made clear to me what my own preferences are.
