Jaguar F-Type Coupe pictures were actually the CX-16Thu, 09 May 2013 00:00:00 -0700
In fact, the photos we published turn out to be images Jaguar submitted to the European Patent office when the CX-16 Concept – the first view we had of the new F-Type – was being readied for its debut in 2011. Oh, well.
But despite the images we ran turning out to be a bit of a red herring, there’s no doubt Jaguar will reveal an F-Type Coupe before too long, but not necessarily as soon as the ‘production’ patent images led us to think.
But when the F-Type Coupe does arrive it should be really quite special. It’s lines are more impressive than the F-Type Roadster (with or without the E-Type inspired side opening rear hatch) and there’s the promise that we will end up with, at the very least, an F-Type V8 R-S.
That was made almost a certainty recently when Jaguar’s design director revealed there are plans for more Jaguar R-S models - and even more focused R-S GT versions too – across the range, and that the the F-Type in particular lends itself to more extreme versions.
It certainly whets the appetite for a really focused Jaguar F-Type Coupe.
