Ever since Jaguar showed off it's F-Type Concept in 2000, the world has been eagerly awaiting the real deal.
After being reported that the project was alive, then dead, then alive, then dead and finally alive, we're edging closer to the Paris debut.
If you haven't been in the loop as of late, this is what we do know. The F-Type will feature three powerplants: two 3.0-liter V6s that churn out 335 hp and 375 hp. In addition, there will be a V8 F-Type R, which has been spotted testing, that produces somewhere around 450 ponies.
Now though, we're starting to hear word about some other new details.

Jaguar has also revealed that every model will be rear-wheel drive and use an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Stop-start will be standard, too, while the chassis and body will be constructed entirely from aluminium to keep weight down and performance up.
Adrian Hallmark, Global Brand Director, Jaguar Cars, said: “As its sporting forebears did in their era, the F-Type will break new ground by delivering stunning sports car performance while vividly demonstrating Jaguar’s cutting-edge engineering technologies and world-class design excellence. The next step in Jaguar’s sporting bloodline is about to become reality.”
