Tata confirmed the F-Type Concept will go into production. We will see the production version on sale in 2012.
The 2012 F-Type will be built on XF’s platform and will use the XK’s aluminum suspension components to save weight. Under the hood there will be a V6 engine with output around 235 hp. Twin turbos are a possibility.
Initial rumors said the 2012 F-Type will be simply a slimmer version of the XK. Instead, take the E-Type, morph it into the radical C-XF concept and XF production car and then develop those themes to become the F-Type. Jaguar could very easily end up with the coolest sports car of the 21st century.
