Jaguar unveiled the C-X16 concept at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, but the British carmaker has already began testing the first prototypes of the two-seater which will enter market in 2013.
The C-X16 is widely thought to preview the upcoming production XE. This is the smallest Jaguar created since 1954 and should take on both the Porsche Cayman and the 911. The Jaguar XE is expected to be launched initially as a convertible, with a coupé following. The two-seat roadster will be based on a shortened platform of the XK convertible.
A plug-in version may become the company’s first hybrid-electric vehicle. Petrol and diesel models will feature V6 engines. Stay tuned for more news!
