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.

VICTORIA, B.C. — “…and cheap too, at $1.3-million.” The relative insanity of this half-overheard statement doesn’t actually penetrate my brain. I am stunned, floored, gob-smacked by what I am seeing. Two, no, three Ferrari Daytonas. A pair of D-Type Jaguars, one wearing Ecurie Ecosse racing livery. Several (sever ...

Filed under: Concept Cars, Coupe, Supercars, MISC Does the world need another thousand-horsepower, twelve-cylinder, seven-figure hypercar? Probably not. At least not with the likes of the Pagani Huayra and LaFerrari already out on the scene. But we're not going to complain if another storied European marque wants to get in on the action. That company is Lister, a British automaker with roots running back 1 ...
