If the Jaguar XK Was to Make a Comeback, This Is Probably What It Would Look Like
The latest Jaguar XK was discontinued in 2014, after eight years in production. The grand tourer went into the history books a few months after the F-Type was introduced and despite rumors that a new-generation model was underway, the XK did not return. It’s been six years since Jaguar doesn’t offer an XK and this rendering from Future Cars Now gives us a glimpse as to how a modern version would look like.
Have You Noticed That 2019-2020 Jaguar F-Type is Quieter? Here’s Why
The whistling of a turbocharger, the unmistakable whine of a supercharger – these are the noises that we’ve associated with performance for the better part of two decades. It’s not like we had a choice, as automakers were forced to choose forced induction over displacement, but that’s a story for another day. The point of this story is to emphasize the fact that not everybody likes to hear these noises that we now associated with performance, and that’s exactly why the Jaguar F-Type – all V-8 models and the recently discontinued V-6 models – are all quieter than the used to be.
X-Tomi Design Strikes Again, This Time with the 2021 Jaguar F-Type R Shooting Brake
The arrival of the updated 2020 Jaguar F-Type has brought car renderers and artists out of their winter slumber. One such artist is X-Tomi Design, but instead of rejigging the new F-Type’s design into something that would suit his taste and sensibilities, the artist decided to give it a different body altogether, one of the shooting brake variety. This is X-Tomi Design’s Jaguar F-Type Shooting Brake, and it looks darn impressive. Don’t get too excited, though. This is strictly a rendering; Jaguar has given no indication that it’s building an F-Type Shooting Brake.
2021 Jaguar F-Type First Edition
The arrival of the facelifted 2021 Jaguar F-Type also comes with the launch of the F-Type First Edition. Limited to the facelifted F-Type’s first-year production run, the F-Type First Edition offers a smattering of refinements that includes exclusive features inside and out, including a choice of three paint colors and plenty of premium touch-ups in the cabin. The only real downside is that the 2021 F-Type First Edition could set you back at least $90,000.
The Jaguar F-Type’s New Engine Lineup Is Smaller and the F-Type R Now Occupies SVR Space
The facelifted 2021 Jaguar F-Type has arrived, and while everyone is noticing its heavily revised looks, there are a lot of changes to Jag’s sports car that go beyond its aesthetics. Some of the biggest changes can be found, not so ironically, underneath the F-Type’s new clamshell hood.
Gone are the days when you could choose from as many as eight engine options for the F-Type. For the revised model, the base four-cylinder model, the six-cylinder variant, and the supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 unit remain as the holdovers. A new engine could join the mix should Jaguar release an SVR version, but for now, engine options aren’t what they used to be, and that might be a good thing.
I’m In Love With These 2021 Jaguar F-Type Wallpapers
Okay, so Jaguar did a lot to freshen up the 2021 F-Type. Sure, it’s not the next-gen (and maybe mid-engined?) model that we wanted, but it looks 10 times better than it used to. Not that it was an ugly car by any means, but those big bug-eye headlights and funky corner vents in the front just weren’t working for it. Neither was the old-school technology that may only be 5 years old but felt much old. Along with the F-Type’s debut, however, came a small handful of images that I just can’t quit looking at, and then it hit me – these will make some awesome wallpapers!
2021 Jaguar F-Type vs. 2020 Jaguar F-Type Visual Comparison
The 2021 Jaguar F-Type has just made a very quiet debut with no live stream and no crazy jaguar-like stunts. You can visit our one-live-stream page to see videos that were launched along with the new F-Type or you can stick around here to see how the 2021 Jaguar F-Type compares to the current model. There are certainly some changes, not only cosmetically, but mechanically as well. We’ll try to keep it brief, but there’s a lot to talk about, so let’s get to it.
The 2021 Jaguar F-Type has been quietly revealed via Jaguar’s media page – although there was no live stream or any cool stunts, we have to admit that the 2021 model does offer significant improvement over the current model, including revised exterior lighting, updated technology inside, and a decent uptick in power output as well. Check out our full gallery down below!
Watch the 2021 Jaguar F-Type’s Global Debut Video Here (updated)
Jaguar is no stranger to crazy car aerobatics and stunts, and with that teaser video that was posted to social media not that long ago, you can bet the 2021 Jaguar F-Type is going to do a full-on loop-do-loop during the debut live stream.
The stream hasn’t been launched yet, but we’ll be posting it just down below as soon as it is available.

The 2021 Jaguar F-Type Has Leaked and Looks Very Familiar
Monday, December 2nd marks the debut of the 2021 Jaguar F-Type, but this isn’t for the next-gen model. This is a mild face lift that will keep the F-Type fresh for a couple more years, and now we can see it early thanks Instagram channel All Car News that has posted what appear to be legitimate-looking official images.
2021 Jaguar F-Type Coupe(updated)
The Jaguar F-Type is, arguably, one of the best-looking sports cars on the market today and one could even go so far as to say it’s one of the best lookers of the decade. While this might be true, it has also been on the market since 2013, and we all know that it’s due to be replaced in 2020. We’ve finally seen the first prototype of the 2021 Jaguar F-Type being tested, and we have to admit that there’s going to be some serious changes taking place. Expect a similar silhouette with an all-new face and rear end. There’s also a certain rumor about the V-8 engine that you don’t want to miss out on, so be sure to check out our drivetrain section to learn more about that.
Update 12/2/2019: Fresh on the heals of its debut, the Jaguar F-Type Coupe has been leaked on social media. We’ve updated this speculative review with those leaked images and what we know about it so far. Check it out in our special “updates” section below.
The Jaguar F-Type Launches on December 2, But What Does Hot Wheels Have to Do With It?
The new Jaguar F-Type is nearing its début, and Jaguar was kind enough to drop a six-second teaser of the facelifted F-Type, complete with a hint of involvement from Hot Wheels. The official unveiling takes place on December 2, and while the specific details on what’s going to happen remain unclear, it does look like Jaguar wants us to think that Hot Wheels will be prominently involved in it. Is it possible that the new F-Type will perform some kind of stunt in its own début? It’s not unchartered territory considering the relationship history between Jaguar and Hot Wheels.
Will the Next-Gen Jaguar F-Type Actually Be Derived From the Aston Martin Vantage?
Believe it or not, the Jaguar F-Type has been on the market for eight straight years without the customary nip and tuck. That’s a lot, even for a sports car that usually gets to live longer than your run-of-the-mill sedan - the best example here is the Nissan 370Z, which still marches on to this day. The 2021 F-Type, however, will come to fix that as Jaguar is looking to revamp its range-topper in order to keep customer interest high, and there have been suggestions that it will be derived from the Aston Martin Vantage.
A Jaguar I-Pace SVR Will Happen, But The Question Is: When?
The Jaguar I-Pace has been around for some months now, and Jaguar is already set on sticking the SVR badge to its first-ever electric car. That’s right, the carmaker isn’t pondering its options or considering such a performance-oriented version - it will make it. The only thing that’s bothering us is there’s no word on when is Jaguar planning to deliver the said I-Pace SVR.
Jaguar Is Placing a Call to 2010 for the Next-Gen, Mid-Engined F-Type and Successor to the XJ220
A nine-year-old concept from Jaguar’s past could turn out to be the key that unlocks the automaker’s plans for the next-generation F-Type sports car. It’s not uncommon for car companies to dig up past concepts and use them as inspiration for a future model they are planning, but this one has a different feel to it, in part because of the aura surrounding the concept in question.
The Jaguar C-X75 concept remains one of the biggest what-ifs in the sports car world. It was launched in 2010 to great fanfare, and while the hype surrounding the concept never materialized, we could be looking at a better-late-than-never case now that Jaguar’s designers and engineers are looking at the C-X75 as a possible inspiration for the next-generation F-Type. The incumbent sports car still has a few years left in the market, but with preparations for the next-generation model set to begin soon, there’s a possibility that our hopes of seeing the C-X75 come to life will finally happen, even if it’s not in the form we initially expected.
Jaguar F-Type Shows Off at Goodwood, Gets in Trouble Because Of It
The 2019 Goodwood Festival of Speed had no shortage of memorable moments. On its own, the hill climb event was one of the hottest tickets over the weekend, and at least one vehicle made sure everyone got their money’s worth. For the record, the Jaguar F-Type is a great sports car. It boasts an angry 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine that’s lively and relatively fuel-efficient at the same time. It handles like a charm, and it’s poised and responsive on the road. The F-Type is the type of performance model that has few, if any, weaknesses. Unfortunately, one of those weaknesses is getting driven around a course…on two wheels. No sports car should be subjected to such inane gimmickry, and yet, there it was, a Jaguar F-Type, getting driven around the Goodwood hill climb on two wheels. It didn’t take long for something to go wrong, but, hey, at least the F-Type finished the hill climb, even if it was coughing and wheezing in the end.
Lister Once Again Proves its Ability to Build Jaguars with a Mean Streak
Six months after unveiling the LFP, a.k.a. the fastest SUV in the world, Lister is back in the headlines with another monstrous creation, the LFT-C. The raunchy sports car wears a bespoke interior and packs a heavily modified 5.0-liter supercharged V-8 engine that produces 666 horsepower. It can also sprint from 0 to 62 mph in a little over three seconds, and it’s capable of maxing out at 203 mph. It’s also limited to just ten units, making it far more exclusive than its coupé counterpart, the LFT-666. Oh, and over and above all that, the Lister LFT-C is also a convertible, making it the fastest and most potent convertible Lister has ever created.
Lister Unveils Roofless LFT-666, Calls It LFT-C
The popularity of Lister’s LFT-666, formerly known as the Thunder, prompted the British outfit to create the LFT-C as an attention-grabber while it works on the Knobbly. The LFT-C features "an almost unlimited options list," packs the same 657 horsepower V-8 as the fixed-head version, and it costs $182,424. Unlike the coupe, though, only 10 LFT-Cs will ever be made.
Lister seems to be doing better than ever. The company based in Cambridge, England currently assembles the LFT-666 Coupe and the
based LFP that’s one of the fastest SUVs money can buy in Europe. More recently, CEO Lawrence Whittaker announced plans to revive the legendary Knobbly nameplate on a retro-chic two-seater sports car with Ferrari-rivaling output, and a rebirth of the Storm is also on the cards in the future. It is, then, surprising that Lister found time to create the LFT-C at all.
1973 Jaguar E-Type Series 3 2+2
The Jaguar E-Type Series 3 is the ugly duckling of the E-Type family as well as the swansong of the legendary car. It was produced between 1971 and 1975 and came with further body modifications that make it less desirable today than an early S1 example. The S3 you see here was restored and subtly upgraded by E-Type UK, one of the top Jaguar E-Type specialists in the world.
By the dawn of the ’70s, the E-Type was very much like an aging rock star. It’s past its best days but still soldiering on with the same party tricks that made it a hit when it first appeared on the scene. However, the 4.2-liter, inline-six, XK engine was finally showing its age thanks to a string of tougher emission regulations that gradually lowered the power output. Jaguar needed to perform a heart transplant on their legendary sports car and decided their best bet would be the V-12 engine that was originally designed for the XJ sedan. The result wasn’t the much-hyped F-Type (as pundits at the time suggested the new Jag sports car would be called) but the E-Type S3.
There’s no denying that the Jaguar F-Type is one hell of a sports coupe, but Checkered Flag Limited Edition model comes to celebrate Jaguars 70th anniversary, and it does so in elegant fashion. Based atop the R-Dynamic trim, Jaguar decked it out even further by throwing in a black roof, tons of badging, and an exclusive pair of 20-inch wheels that look, well, amazing. Three body colors are available, and the options don’t stop there. You can actually choose between the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine or the 3.0-liter V-6. That means you can have either 296 ponies screaming under the hood or 380 ponies. Those translate to a 5.4-second sprint to 60 mph or a 4.9-second sprint to the same benchmark, respectively. The larger engine will also get you to a heart-palpitating 171 mph. With all of this in mind, we thought we’d help honor Jag’s 70th anniversary by making this limited edition our wallpaper of the day. Check out our favorite shot of this limited-edition beaut or slide on down to the gallery for more great options.
2019 Jaguar F-TYPE Checkered Flag Limited Edition Coupe
Jaguar is rolling out the special-edition goods with the arrival of the F-TYPE Chequered Flag Limited Edition. Based on the coupé and convertible versions of the Jaguar F-TYPE R-Dynamic trim, the Chequered Flag Limited Edition is a celebration of the Big Cat’s history and lineage of sports cars that earnestly began with the arrival of the XK 120 back in 1948. In keeping with a number of past Jaguar F-TYPE special editions, the Chequered Flag Limited Edition mostly comes with exclusive cosmetic touches inside and out. It features a black roof, a new set of exclusive wheels, and enough badges to drive home the point that this is an exclusive 380-horsepower kitty that pays homage to its heritage. The Jaguar F-TYPE Chequered Flag Edition is available in the U.S. market at a starting price of $71,900.
Cars That We Can’t Wait to See in 2019
What does the future behold? There are countless future classics ready to slide out from under the sheets of which they’ve been covered, and it’s all set to happen in 2019.

With that said, we have a lot to be excited for, and this is a list of the models that we just can’t wait any longer for.
