Could this be the beginning of a new era for Jaguar? Looks promising:

Full story


The F-type may be just one of 40 "significant new products" that Jaguar says it will launch during a five-year period.

But it may also be the most significant one, in that it carries on a history of iconic sportscars that include the C-, D- and E-type...

So are we looking at a coming major success for the British car industry? A lot is riding on this...

Hmmm, cool car but it looks like an Aston Martin. But good on Jaguar for keeping it together and moving forward. They have a lot of history and need to keep it coming.

Looks like an F-type to me. The body lines are absolutely there, especially the back half. I suppose there are only so many aerodynamic ways you can bend metal and since they all have 4 wheels and need a grill and a windshield some similarities are inevitable.

Aston Martin is still owned by Ford (American) while they sold the Jaguar bit to Tata an Indian company..

A great era for British cars indeed

Yep, not unlike an Aston Martin.

But, having dug a little deeper, it turns out the F-type keeps some of the signature features of the C-X16 prototype but has morphed into a two-seat roadster:

Remember the stunning Jaguar C-X16 concept that debuted at last year's Frankfurt Motor Show? Guess what, kids – it's coming to production. Well, sort of.

Jaguar has officially announced that a new entry-level sports car will come to market next year and that it will indeed carry the "F-Type" moniker. But unlike the coupe concept that we saw in Frankfurt, the automaker has revealed that the F-Type will be a two-seat roadster.

No other official details have been confirmed, though Jaguar's press release confirms that "a range of engines will be available, including a new powerplant family." For reference, the C-X16 concept came with a 3.0-liter supercharged V6 – good for 376 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque – matched with a "Push to Pass" hybrid system controlled by a steering wheel-mounted button that delivers an additional 92 hp and 173 lb-ft of twist when pressed.

Jaguar will announce the full F-Type model range and details later this year (likely at the Paris Motor Show) and the car will go on sale in mid-2013. Scroll down for the official press release and to watch – and hear – a disguised prototype.


Who cares if the parent company is Indian. When it sounds like this, we're talking hairy-chested British sportscar —

*volume up, please*

Certainly looks nice, my fave yet......although it does as someone has already said, look similar to an Aston, like a hybrid of an Aston Martin and a Masserati.

Nice though. Cheers for posting.

More car companies nowadays have a model or two that harkens back to a classic model that helped set up the brand. Jaguar is getting up to speed by launching the F-type, a two-seat roadster like some of brand’s most fabled versions. Utilising Jaguar's industry-leading knowledge of all-aluminium construction, the F-Type will launch as a convertible, and a strict two-seater with the focus uncompromisingly on delivering driver reward. A range of petrol engines will be available - including a new powerplant family - and all will deliver stunning sports car performance. With bad car credit loans, you can get a new car.
