The new Jaguar model, E-Type is almost ready to take on the world.
Spy photographers from Teamspeed were able to photograph the upcoming Jaguar XE. Here you can see some of the first spy shots available of this new model.
Jaguar’s new compact, two-seater sports car is based on the XK model which will compete against the like of the Porsche 911.
2013 Jaguar XE prototype has a shortened chassis and body of the XK. The British car maker will offer this new model both as a coupe and cabriolet model, and it’s a cabrio that from the pictures.
The details are still vague on the XE, but we expect it to be a two-seater and priced competitively with the Porsche 911, the model it aims to compete against.
If we look at the long Jaguar nose, it will sport a mid-front engine mounting for performance handling.
The new Jaguar XE is also expected to be fitted with a V6 engine in at least two configurations, one naturally-aspirated and one supercharged.
We expect that the output levels will be competitive with Cayman and 911 models.
