Not likely to come as surprise to those who have driven Jaguar’s latest sports car, the F-Type has already sold half of all the cars slated to be built in 2013.
“Half of the first year’s production of the F-Type is already sold,” global brand director Adrian Hallmark told Automotive News.
The F-Type is expected to make up 15 percent to 20 percent of Jaguar’s total annual production of 60,000 units, meaning that there will be anywhere from 9,000 to 12,000 F-Types built this year. With half of them already sold, Jaguar has received at least 4,500 pre-orders. Delivery times are already stretched out to over a year in the US.
Jaguar expects quite a few new customers thanks to this car, given that it has no direct predecessor. It is also Jaguar’s first two-seat sports car in almost four decades, which the brand expects will help to draw in younger buyers.
Although Jaguar hasn’t released anything on the car, spy photos showing the F-Type Coupe have already been snapped, confirming that the car will also be offered with a roof in the future.
