Jaguar is teasing its development of its new sports car model. Last year they did the same at the Frankfurt Motor Show through the C-X16 Concept study.
At the New York Motor Show today, the company announced the production model will be called the F-Type and it will launch as a roadster in mid 2013. A coupe variant will follow in 2014.
"We showed the C-X16 concept in September 2011, and the reaction to it has been so positive that we've accelerated our development of an all-new Jaguar sports car," commented Adrian Hallmark, Jaguar Global Brand Director.
"That car will be called the F-TYPE, and it will be unveiled in production form later this year. The core appeal of Jaguar's cars is their sporting heart, and that heart will beat stronger than ever before in the F-TYPE," he added.
The F-Type will be a strictly two-seater model positioned under the XK range, which also includes a coupe and a convertible model.
Its unclear if the F-Type will utilize the concept's hybrid system of 380 hp 3.0 liter supercharged V8 with a 95hp electric motor integrated in the eight speed automatic transmission structure.
The new F-Type model will be positioned between the Porsche Boxster and the 911 Convertible.
