In Jaguar do not stop of turning its flagship model, the Jaguar F-Type. In the few years of life of the Jaguar F-Type we’ve seen, as this model has managed to make with a range of engines able to convince everyone, however we could still meet some that another surprise in the form of access model. If the general rule is that the F-Type is designed to fight the Porsche 911, How about down one step in power and cylinders as well face up to the Porsche 718 Boxster and Porsche 718 Cayman?
An interesting movement without hardly any risks for scratch sales between baby Porsche
This could be the new strategic plan of Jaguar in order to multiply the technical possibilities of the Jaguar F-Type, both in its coupe version as the convertible. In these moments the model access to the range is the Jaguar F-Type engine 3.0 V6 Supercharged with 340 HP and the possibility to choose between a manual change to 6 relationships or one original automatic ZF 8-relationships. I believe that with this engine the Jaguar F-Type is a sports car, so that imagine that a four cylinder turbo with around 300 HP would not be a bad idea.
The million dollar question would not be other than what a propeller of four cylinders installed under the huge hood of the Jaguar F-Type. And the answer could not be more simple, and is that Jaguar already have an engine 2.0 Turbo of origin Ford available in versions of 240 HP, an engine that would be easy to carry to 300 HP with slight technical improvements to create a rival for height, the new Porsche 718 Cayman, and Porsche 718 Boxster.
Porsche 718 Boxster, to the test: what is a boxer-four-cylinder worthy of a Porsche? Yes, it is
The key of this movement of Jaguar, rather than the technical approach that seems quite simple, it will be the positioning in price of this new Jaguar F-Type with 4-cylinder engine. At present the price difference to equal benefits round the 10,000 € in favor of the Jaguar F-Type, however to date the british sports had always played in another league compared to the Porsche 911.
Jaguar is not going to pose even for a moment to launch a sporty smaller, so you develop this version of the only four-cylinder and 300 HP can be a logical move taking into account that the needs in both development will be minimal. Your success will depend on a price well-defined to make some sales to the smaller Porsche.
