Next Jaguar F-Type May Get a Mid-Engine and C-X75 Design Cues

Jaguar is contemplating the idea of giving the next-generation F-Type a mid-engined layout.

The second-generation Jaguar F-Type isn’t expected for another three years, but there’s already some discussion about how to design the next chapter of the F-Type’s story.

Visually, the stunning F-Type could take design cues from the Jaguar C-X75 concept introduced at the 2010 Paris Motor Show. Designed by Ian Callum, the concept was a mid-engined prototype with all-wheel drive and a PHEV powertrain with 50 kilometres of range. It used turbines that acted as generators to power the hybrid system’s batteries.

Although the C-X75 never made it to production, many of its innovations and features would work well on a range-topping performance car like the F-Type.

The mid-engine is one, but so is the electrified powertrain. Jaguar is apparently toying with the idea of making the next F-Type hybrid in some form or another.

Since the Jaguar F-Type’s introduction in 2013, over 62,000 units have sold globally. Two thirds of the total production run for the F-Type have been coupes.

Jaguar says that the current F-Type will receive several improvements in the next couple of years. The goal here is obviously to keep the current car competitive as the next generation develops.
