Jaguar plans Porsche 911 Turbo fighting F-Type

Reports have surfaced indicating that Jaguar is planning on making a very powerful coupe version of its new F-Type. The car will reportedly be intended to rival the popular Porsche 911 Turbo S. Currently that Porsche Turbo S produces 533 hp. Reports indicate that the Jaguar F-Type Coupe would produce as much as 700 hp. The Jaguar representative told AutoExpress, "We have done an R-S version with over 700bhp that will do over 200mph – it’s going to be insane.” The image you see here isn't the official car, but is an image based on the Jaguar C-X16 concept car revealed in Germany last year.

All details on the 700 hp F-Type are unknown at this time, speculation is that it could use turbocharged and supercharged 1.6-liter gasoline engines paired with multiple electric motors. The F-type Coupe in standard form is expected to launch next year. The 700 hp version isn't expected to hit production until at least 2016.

As is typical for Hennessey Performance, though, that wasn’t enough. They’ve turned the wick up with the HPE600 F-type R, to the tune of 623 horses at the crank. Watch and listen as this cat blasts through quarter-mile in less than 11.6 seconds. First, it’s sort of cool to see the car deploy its automatic spoiler, programmed ...
