If the latest report is accurate then Jaguar is wasting no time in unveiling the hardtop variant of its beautiful new F-Type.
It hasn't even been a week since the drop-dead gorgeous 2014 Jaguar F-Type Roadster made its big debut at the Paris Motor Show. Now that the Parisian public has had its chance to drool over Coventry's latest, Motor Authority is reporting it's received word that the fixed-roof coupe variant could arrive as soon as next month at the LA Auto Show. It's no secret that Jaguar was planning both coupe and convertible versions of the F-Type, so news of the tin-top model's upcoming arrival isn't surprising. We just didn't expect it to arrive so soon.
The early timing would give Jaguar Land Rover the chance to showcase three new models at once: the F-Type coupe and convertible and redesigned Range Rover, all of which could stand to make their US debuts in Los Angeles. Expect the F-Type coupe to offer the same powertrains as the roadster: two supercharged V6's and a supercharged V8, all of which are mated to an eight-speed automatic sending power to the rear wheels. Jaguar apparently already has 20,000 customers in line for the new sportscar, with pricing for the base V6 model starting at $69,000 and topping $92k for the V8.
