Jaguar is reportedly considering the addition of a third body-style to its F-TYPE line-up, to join the existing roadster and coupe models.

Speaking with the UK’s Auto Express, Jaguar design boss Ian Callum reportedly said that a Targa version would give the F-TYPE greater leverage against the Porsche 911; specifically its brand-new 911 Targa.

While the Jaguar design team has drawn up sketches of an F-TYPE Targa, the new model is yet to be given the green light.

“We're considering it, but it’s not definite,” Mr Callum said. "The issue with the Targa is volume."

"If you think of Porsche, 10 percent of its cars are Targa, while 10 percent of ours is less than theirs. You have to work out the business case but we have considered it, it’s not decided yet.”

Mr Callum reportedly said Jaguar is working on “three or four cars at the moment”, with the BMW 3 Series-rivalling sedan (dubbed “XS”) and a production version of the C-X17 SUV concept believed to be among them.

The F-TYPE roadster arrived in Australia mid-way through last year, with prices starting below the $150k mark at $138,645 plus on-roads.

The F-TYPE Coupe has also been confirmed for an Australian debut later this year, with pricing and specifications yet to be confirmed.
