Default New mid-engined 2022 Jaguar F-Type to rival McLaren

New mid-engined 2022 Jaguar F-Type to rival McLaren
Jaguar F-Type successor, which could be called J-Type, will feature a mid-engine layout and hybrid tech. A full EV model could also follow

The successor to the Jaguar F-Type will embrace hybrid technology and go mid-engined when it launches around 2022, Auto Express can exclusively reveal. And further down the line, Jag could launch a fully-electric version to rival the forthcoming Porsche Taycan.

Development work on the F-Typeís successor is under way, with engineers devising a plan that will transform the model into the brandís halo product to compete with McLaren and Audi Sport.

Central to the plan and favoured by engineers is the shift from a front to mid-engined layout for the performance car. According to high-ranking technicians working on the project, the Honda NSX is being used as a benchmark for the next-generation Jaguar model, because key to the carís armoury will be the use of hybrid technology to boost performance.

Although it will be a replacement for the current F-Type, the new product is likely to bear little resemblance to the existing car. The switch to a mid-engined layout will enable Jaguar to be more daring with the proportions; the long bonnet and cab- rearward design of the current F-Type will make way for a lower, sleeker overall look, previewed in our exclusive images.

The mechanical make-up of the car is yet to be finalised, but itís expected that at least two electric motors, one on each axle to give four-wheel drive, will supplement a mid-mounted V6 engine. If it is to be competitive, a power figure upwards of 550bhp is likely, placing it among competitors such as the McLaren 570S and Audi R8.



It will be only the second mid-engined car in Jaguarís 83-year history, following on from the XJ220 of the nineties. The firm came close to launching another in 2010 with the C-X75. Developed with Williams Advanced Engineering, the supercar was pitched as a rival for the McLaren P1, but the economic situation at the time concerned Jaguar and the project was axed due to a fear of a lack of return on the companyís investment.

The flexible platform on which the new F-Type will be based will also allow the brand to develop a fully-electric version. Auto Express understands engineers are keeping a close eye on the Taycan project and are keen to build a rival for that car.

Jaguar has much more experience recently with developing electric cars as opposed to mid-engined vehicles. The I-Pace is widely regarded as the best of its kind and is driven by concentric permanent magnet synchronous motors Ė that means the carís driveshaft runs through the middle of them Ė which are designed and built by Jaguar itself.

Itís also possible that by the time the F-Type EV arrives, solid state battery technology, which is being analysed and developed by a host of global car brands, could be ready for production.



Given the extensive changes the F-Typeís successor will undergo, itís possible Jaguar could rename the model J-Type. The firm applied to trademark the name as recently as last month.

I wouldn't be surprised to see this become the new Jaguar F Type SVR. There needs to be a bigger performance gap between the SVR and R and this fits that perfectly.

2022 Jaguar F-Type goes all V8, all the time
https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/2...ed-v8-engines/



2022 Jaguar F-Type Goes V-8 Only

The four- and six-cylinder engines are dropped, and the new base model uses a 444-hp supercharged V-8. The only other option is the 575-hp F-Type R.

$72k for a rear drive V8 Jaguar is a bit of a steal. Oh man, if only it had a manual.

This move makes sense.

So what would you guys pick? RWD F-Type w/ the V8 or a Cayman GTS with the 4.0L six?

I think due to the 6mT I might lean to the Porsche, but otherwise I'd rather have the Jag, it just sounds amazing and it's cheaper.

I'm probably a bit biased, but hard to go wrong with Porsche for build quality, resale, and if you get the right exhaust on it the flat 6 sounds incredible.

Look at your sig you might be biased.

I think Jag's play is the price, a well equipped V8 for like $76k vs like $92k for a Cayman GTS. I'd probably get the GT4 if I could swing it.

911s have gotten a little big for my taste. 997 is the perfect size.

So you attempted to use logic on the choice?

Thereís a Jag involved, logic has to wait outside.

I'd rather an M2C. Don't get me wrong, the F Type R is an amazing car and that supercharged V8 is ****ing glorious. However, it does lack a certain feel that I can't explain. It was a toss up between the type R and M2, ultimately I went M2 as it felt more driver oriented while the Type R felt more like a ridiculous fast, leisure gentleman's car. There are certain interior quality things that just seemed cheap too.

That said, it's not a bad car by any means. It does ride stiffer than you would think but the whine of the supercharger and the exhaust with the flaps open is ****ing glorious.

It honestly depends on what youíre looking for in a car as they will be distinctly different experiences. The cayman will feel lighter, and much more of a performance oriented drivers car. The Jag just feels like a rather heavy gentlemanís car that happens to be really quick. The cayman will out handle the jag and feel more connected to the road / better driver feedback.

That said, Iíd take the Jag over Cayman, especially if itís the R. Maybe Iím a snob but I couldnít do anything but a 911 if going porsche.
