Jaguar Planning 700 hp F-Type Coupe

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.
