When Jaguar introduced the F-Type sports car in 2013, it was intended as a modern design, but it was also still referencing the classic E-Type of the 1960s, so some of the old car’s flavor carried over. 2013 was a long time ago now, so Jaguar has decided the time is right to leave the past in the rear view mirror and reorient the F-Type to a fully contemporary design.
LED headlight technology has significantly influenced the design of cars since the F-Type was styled. So the most obvious change in the new F-Type’s “face” is the old, almost traditional “eyes” above the front cutline are gone, replaced by narrow slits beneath a line that becomes a furrowed brow.
