Jaguar calls the F-type, a two-seat sports car, "a return to the company's heart." The small, lightweight aluminum-bodied car will be available in versions ranging from a 340 horsepower V6 to and 480 horsepower supercharged V8. Even the convertible top is high-performance. Jaguar boasts it can be raised or lowered in 12 seconds at speeds up to 30 miles an hour.
The redesigned pony car will offer better fuel economy, an improved ride and better handling, Ford says.
