Jaguar F-Type coupe spy photosMon, 17 Jun 2013 00:00:00 -0700
Jaguar's F-Type convertible is on fire right now. Sales are soaring and half of the first year's production is already sold. It's safe to say the sports car is meeting or exceeding Jaguar expectations.
Coming with a trio of supercharged engine choices -- 340 hp, 380 hp and 495 hp respectively -- these cars are no slowpokes (although they are on the heavy side, tipping the scales northward of 3,500 pounds).
Besides the weight and lack of a manual option, we had a blast with the F-Type convertible when we drove it in Spain earlier this year.
While Jaguar has been bashful about a possible coupe model, it also has never flat-out denied one as part of its future plans. These F-Type coupe spy shots indicate that a production model is on the horizon.
With coupe prototypes being consistently seen on the streets of Europe and no official denial from Jaguar, we expect to hear of an official release very soon.
Expect the same engine choices to be available for the coupe and hope that Jaguar decides to stick a manual transmission in this thing.
In the meantime, check out the shots in the gallery above. Based on what we see, you can get an idea of how the shape and proportions will turn out for the end result.
As always, stay tuned for more information regarding the Jag.
