DETROIT -- "Production starts next month on the 2014 Jaguar F-Type S and it will hit the U.S. market in May or June," said Steven DePloey, Jaguar's Global Product Marketing Director. It will be the first genuine two-seater sports car in 50 years.

The Jaguar F-Type S comes with a front engine and rear wheel drive only. It has a V6 perfect for weight distribution, front and rear. It is six percent larger (five inches wider) than the Porsche 911 and has more stability on the road. There are three powertrains: a V6 with 340 hp, a V6S with 380 hp and a V8S with 495 hp. The car goes from 0-60 in 4.2 seconds with a top speed of 186 mph.

The eight-speed has quick shift for smoothness of an automatic transmission combined with fast responsiveness of a dual clutch transmission. There is a limited slip differential on V8S and V6S.

There is a lightweight body to optimize power to weight ratio. V8S has the highest power to weight and also the highest torque to weight.

"We are not looking into an electric vehicle, however, in the future may consider a hybrid," DePloey added. "We are talking early 30's in the mpg. and the price starts at $69,000 for V-6 and just over $100,000 for the V-8S. The craftsmanship of the interior is all hand made."

The body is all aluminum and is manufactured in Castle Bromwich, United Kingdom. The Jaguar F-Type S won a lot of design awards as a concept vehicle. The main market will be the United States.
