Da Carscoop.com, un estratto interessante dell'intervista che Callum ha rilasciato a Road & Track durante il salone di LA:

According to Jaguar design director Ian Callum, the British brand is open to making the next-generation F-Type mid-engined.

During a comprehensive interview with Road & Track during the Los Angeles Auto Show, Callum revealed that the company has had discussions about adopting a mid-engine layout and that it would be fitting for a sports car company like Jaguar.

“I think we've got more permission to break the mold. Our F-Type, before the one that became the production car, the previous design concept was mid-engine. It never happened. It would have been very different. But I think we've got permission to do that, because we're a sports car company,” he said.

“I don't feel tied by it. We've had a discussion — will the next F-Type be mid-engine or front-engine? We've had that discussion. We haven't decided yet. And even within the design studio we disagree with each other. So the next F-Type won't necessarily have a long hood and a short trunk.”

If the next F-Type did indeed become mid-engined, it could place it amongst a different breed of performance cars, including the Lamborghini Huracan, Ferrari 488 GTB and McLaren 650S. 

If Jaguar does indeed go down this route, an uprated powertrain would be inevitable with power likely sitting in excess of 600 hp.

 

 

Quindi c'è una possibilità che la prossima F-Type sia a MC.

Che senso avrebbe una F-type a motore centrale dal momento che è l'erede spirituale della mitica E? Stessa cosa penso per la "futura" Corvette MC, un enorme sbaglio a mio parere.

Mode del momento? vedi 4c, vedi nuova alpine a110... (così non mi dite che tutti copiano Alfa, visto che Porsche e Lotus le auto MC già le fanno... :si:) :-D

Le prime notizie sulla prossima Jaguar F-type che la collocano sul binario elettrico.

Bozzetti inguardabili (dietro assomiglia ad una Alpine): indubbiamente con la nuova tipologia di trazione si modificheranno (in peggio??) le proporzioni.

NEXT F-TYPE SPORTS TO BE ALL-ELECTRIC – WHEELS December 17, 2017 A top-secret project currently underway at Jaguar’s design and engineering centre in Gaydon will see petrol engines dropped altogether for the radical all-electric Jaguar F-Type replacement due as early as 2021 or 2022. Despite the lack of internal combustion, the futuristic Jaguar two-door sports car will be the fastest car ever to wear the leaper badge courtesy of electric motors and a bespoke new architecture tailored to take advantage of the design freedoms offered when a traditional drivetrain is not part of the equation. The bold decision to drop petrol engines is in line with Jaguar Land Rover’s promise of ensuring every model features some form of electrification by 2020. It’s that promise that also prompted the board-level decision to scrap traditional drivetrains altogether for a next-gen sports car, in the process sidestepping the halfway-house trend towards hybrid propulsion. While JLR chief Ralf Speth has admitted internal combustion engines will be around for a long time yet, it’s understood he saw too many compromises in designing a compact sports car to accommodate bulky internal combustion engines as well as electric motors and batteries. The move to target the heartland of Jaguar – sports cars – is also a bold step to separate Jaguar from its predominantly German competition by taking a leading position with a flagship EV performance car. Combined with the early-2017 announcement of the Jaguar i-Pace electric SUV, it was that electric E-Type that prompted a months-long Wheels investigation that unearthed the top-secret project. Sources closely aligned with the program have confirmed the company is deep in development of the all-electric F-Type replacement, which could get a different name to signify its leap from tradition to cutting-edge EV technology. The all-electric sports car is being developed alongside the i-Pace. It uses two electric motors and a 90kWh lithium-ion battery pack that can reach 80 percent charge in 90 minutes. As with Teslas, acceleration will be a big part of the i-Pace sales pitch, with the SUV claimed to be able to hit 100km/h in four seconds. But the new F-Type will boost that performance further, with a line-up likely to include rear-drive and all-paw variants. Entry-level cars will stick with a rear-drive setup, while more expensive models will run electric motors at both ends, delivering drive to front and rear wheels. It’s the AWD version that aims to reset the two-seater performance benchmark for Jaguar, with early internal targets nominating a sub-3.0 second 0-100km/h time. While engineers are excited by the relatively easy performance promised by electric motors, developing the personality of the car will rely heavily on the design team, led by Ian Callum. While there will be lessons learned from the i-Pace, the all-new electric sports coupe will sit on a unique architecture tailored to a sports car featuring a low seating position. Those sporty requirements have so far challenged Callum and his team – especially with the inherent focus on light weight – and mean the car will be a vast visual leap from the F-Type, the XK and the E-Type, each of which had a prodigious bonnet to house V8 and/or V12 engines.

Ho beccato una F-type V8 in autostrada, ero dietro e c'era traffico pesante, ogni volta che un camion finiva il sorpasso partiva un ruggito.

 

Se la faranno elettrica per me diventerà un elettrodomestico al pari di una Panda.

O elettrodomestico o chiudere bottega. Investire in auto con motore a combustione interna è come investire in treni a vapore o in biplani.

Ad oggi mi sa che visto la quantità di energia immagazzinabile nelle batterie, mi sa che il prossimo volo me lo becco su un caproni ca 35 😀😀
