Jaguar could be excused for being in a state of flux, with its pending sale to India?s Tata Motors working its way to fruition, but it appears to be business as usual and then some. The latest news is that Jaguar are in the process of developing an all-new coupe to go toe-to-toe with Porsche?s 911.

Currently, the only sports car in the Jaguar line-up is the widely acclaimed XK, but historically, sporty two doors have been a Jaguar staple. Famous models such as the C and E-Types and of course the classic XK range helped Jaguar forge its name on the world market.

This time around, the new Jaguar 911 fighter may be called the ?F-Type? (2000 F-Type concept pictured) and is likely to use a cut and shut version of the XJ?s all-aluminium platform. Although there has been no confirmation regarding what may power the new sports car, the light-weight construction is likely to be combined with a version of Jaguar?s 4.2-litre V8, a combination that should prove plenty potent.

Ford?s sale of Aston Martin and pending sale of Jaguar has ironically, paved the way for Jaguar to build the F-Type, a project that Ford was previously reluctant to undertake, in the belief that the F-Type would potentially steal sales from their Aston Martin range.
