While owning a wild and exciting rear-wheel-drive sports coupe like the new Jaguar F-Type sounds like an absolute blast, there is a large part of the population that likes their sports cars with a little less drift and a lot more traction. Just look to the sales of the Audi R8 , Audi TT , and the Porsche Carrera 4 for evidence of that. Jaguar is well aware of the customers it may be losing in the colder regions of the world by only offering a RWD coupe, so it’s working a new AWD version of the sporty two-door.
We have heard rumors about this before, but thanks to some new spy shots seen on Carmagazine.co.uk, we have some more definitive proof. In these shots you can see that the hood line is visibly higher, a concession needed to make room for the extra front differential hiding under the engine.
The car will likely be revealed later this year at one of the U.S. auto shows — likely LA or Detroit. The car should hit dealerships in the summer or fall of 2015, just in time for winter hoonage.
