Here is our first official shot of the new Jaguar F-Type Coupe that will debut at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show in a few weeks time. The F-Type Coupe looks very much like the C-X16 Concept shown at the Frankfurt Motor Show back in 2011. We can't tell much from this ariel shot aside from the F-Type coming with a glass roof, possibly an option.
We'll have more info on the new member of the F-Type family in a few weeks time.

F-TYPE COUPE TO MAKE DYNAMIC DEBUT IN LOS ANGELES
• Jaguar to produce coupe version of breakthrough new F-TYPE sports car
• F-TYPE Coupe to make its global debuts at L.A. and Tokyo Motor Shows
(MAHWAH, N.J.) – November 5, 2013 –The Jaguar F-TYPE Coupe will make its global debut on November 19 at a Los Angeles VIP customer and media event, the eve of the Los Angeles Auto Show, and on the show floor on November 20 at the Los Angeles and Tokyo Motor Shows.
The all-aluminum F-TYPE Coupe range will deliver in production form the uncompromised design vision of the Jaguar C-X16 concept, and will complement the existing F-TYPE Convertible, winner of the 2013 'World Car Design of the Year' award. The F-TYPE Coupe will go on sale in North America in spring 2014.
Ian Callum, Director of Design, Jaguar, said, "The excitement generated when we revealed the C-X16 concept was terrific; so to now be on the cusp of what I can assure you will be a drama-filled reveal event in Los Angeles for F-TYPE Coupe is a very significant moment."
"We've been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to the F-TYPE Convertible, but for me the purity of creating a sports Coupe is a uniquely satisfying process – and I know that both visually and dynamically, F-TYPE Coupe raises the bar yet again."
