Jaguar will be taking the veils off the new F-Type sports car on December 2, 2019, following the release of a short teaser video that was uploaded to its YouTube channel. The clip doesn’t reveal much, but thanks to our spy photographers, we have some materials to work on.

To start, the automaker will continue to offer the F-Type Convertible alongside the regular Coupe. Despite being heavily reskinned, the new F-Type will reportedly sit on the same aluminium structure as the outgoing model, and the existing 5.0 litre supercharged V8 petrol engine looks set to continue propulsion duties.

In fact, following the officiation of Jaguar Land Rover’s partnership with BMW, there are rumours that the F-Type may even adopt the Bavarian company’s famed 4.4 litre twin-turbo V8 engine, but let’s take those with a pinch of salt.

A likelier alternative would be the fitment of JLR’s all-new 3.0 litre straight-six Ingenium petrol engine. The mild-hybrid unit uses a twin scroll turbocharger and an electric supercharger – the latter operates on a 48-volt electrical system and is capable of spooling up to 120,000 rpm in just 0.5 seconds. This helps eliminate turbo lag, which is usually expected of a six-potter that makes 400 PS and 550 Nm of torque.

The new straight-six engine will replace JLR’s outgoing 3.0 litre V6 engine, which makes 380 PS and 450 Nm. In the Range Rover Sport HST, the engine enables a 0-100 km/h time of 6.2 seconds and a top speed of 225 km/h. Expect much quicker sprint times for the F-Type when it debuts.

Design-wise, the new F-Type looks broadly similar in terms of its overall shape, but the front fascia has clearly received a lot of work. The headlights are much slimmer than before, and below each unit is a large air duct to aid cooling. Thankfully, Jaguar chose to be sensible and not blow up the size of the radiator grille.

Over to the back, the LED tail lights appear to be much smaller than before, although this could merely be the work of those camouflage wrap. Either way, V8-powered models will get quad exhaust exits which are integrated into the diffuser. An active rear spoiler should be standard for both Coupe and Convertible models.

Other than that, we have yet to see the new cabin, but again, there are rumours suggesting that the new F-Type will get a 2+2 seater version to rival the Porsche 911. We’ll let time do its thing, but from the photos here, the cars look like strict two-seaters to us. Just a few more days to go, folks!
