Evocative Jaguar F-Type photo leaked ahead of Paris debut

Just days before the Paris Motorshow opens its door, more photos of the Jaguar F-Type were leaked into the internet. Jaguar has responded to the previous leak by releasing the front view of the car, and now the rest of the photos has made their way into the net.
While the front end of the car is fairly well known recently, the new shots show that the rear end of the car stays faithful to the Jaguar C-X16 Concept. The E-Type inspired butt is nothing like the low and sleek of its legendary forebear, but carries the same design concept into the short and stubby tail.
We also got to see the interior for the first time, which, like the rear end, has a heavy C-X16 cues carried over unscathed. There is a proper gear lever instead of the rotary dial, and like the rest of Jaguar range, features the innovative aircond outlet duct. Where the duct swivel on the XF, it pops up this time around. 
Jaguar F-Type is set to be one of the most beautiful Jaguar ever. It carries the retro element of the legendary Jaguar and blends it with the modern surfacing the recent Jaguar is known for. In the market, the car will compete with the likes of Porsche Boxster and Cayman. The car is set to be powered by a 3.0L V6 supercharged and 5.0L V8 supercharged and both are expected to channel the drive to the rear wheel via an 8 speed automatic gearbox.

Paris will open its curtain this Thursday so stay tune. For the rest of the leaked photo, head after the jump.
