Jaguar preparing new F-Type for development

Jaguar’s future is looking brighter than it has for sometime with it now safely secured by financial backer Tata Motors. With a stable footing the iconic automaker is now becoming more ambitious in its efforts to expand its model range. Tata has signed on for a yearly investment of £1 billion for the next five years, which means Jaguar has the funding it research and develop new products. In a recent interview Jaguar Land Rover boss Carl-Peter Forster apparently confirmed that a few new models are in the pipeline, including the F-Type sports car (pictured), which was first seen in concept form way back in 2000.

This isn’t the first time that F-Type production has been rumoured, and there’s been plenty of speculation about what the new sports car will look like. What is likely is that the new Jag will compete with the likes of the Porsche 911 and the Audi R8.

When can we expect a production F-Type to hit the streets? Wouldn’t hold your breath, but Jaguar are keeping busy at the moment so plans will be already well underway.
