Covers will come off the Jaguar F-Type Coupe at the LA Auto Show on November 19, before being displayed at the Tokyo Motor Show a day later. The British automaker says that the fixed-head F-Type will be “the most dynamically capable, performance-focused, production Jaguar ever.”

The new coupe, seen here in a solitary preview image, will join the existing F-Type Convertible range, most likely with the same engine options: base V6 (340 PS), V6 S (380 PS) and V8 S (495 PS). A range-topping 550 PS R-S track monster is also on the cards, as spied here before.

Its sleek roofline will reflect that on the Jaguar C-X16 Concept from the Frankfurt Motor Show 2011, which in turn previewed the production F-Type Convertible that was unveiled a year later. The modern E-Type is coming full circle in just a few weeks’ time. Look out for our live coverage of the Tokyo Motor Show soon.
