Jaguar F-Type sold out until end of 2013Fri, 31 May 2013 00:00:00 -0700
If you want a new Jaguar F-Type, you won’t get one until the end of 2013
The new Jaguar F-Type may not be a volume car for Jaguar – it’s place in jaguar’s lineup is to cast a rosy, sporty glow on the whole Jaguar range – but the numbers sold already seem to indicate the F-Type will end up selling even more than the 75,000 a year Jaguar hoped – assuming they can up production.
Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar’s Global Brand Director, has confirmed to Automotive News that the new F-Type is already selling strongly, despite only going on sale a month ago, and the F-Type is sold out for at least the next six months. “Customers who order the car now will be lucky to get one by the end of this year”, he said.
It’s a very promising start for a new sports car that ended up arriving at a much higher price than we expected, with prices aimed more at the heart of the Porsche 911, rather than the Cayman as we expected, and even an entry-level F-Type with the 340PS will cost you the best part of £60k and the V8S – for now, at least, the top of the tree – starting at £80k and heading perilously close to £100k if you trouble the options list to any great degree.
And this is just the start for the F-Type, as we’re expecting Jaguar to reveal the F-Type Coupe before too long and a more potent F-Type R – probably with something around 550bhp – on its way before long too.
Maybe Jaguar will have to find a way to build even more F-Types than they planned?
