Final Jaguar F-Type rolls off the production line

Today marks the end of the iconic Jaguar F-Type sports car. After over ten years in production, the final example has rolled off the line at the company's Castle Bromwich factory as the company looks to reinvent itself as an EV only brand. The final car was produced exactly 50 years after the final E-Type was made, way back in 1974. Jaguar has even specced the car to reference the old E-Type, a convertible variant, finished in Giola Green with a black roof and tan leather interior.

Jaguar will place the final example of the F-Type at the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust located at Gaydon, which is also where the last XE, XF and XF Sportbrake are also now located. Don't panic though if you do still want an F-Type, as Jaguar will be keeping the car in showrooms until early 2025. Since 2013, the company produced 87,731 examples.

Going forward, Jaguar is focusing on a new electric grand touring car, built on a new JEA platform and the car is due to be revealed later this year. The car is set to cost around £100,000 wit 430 miles of range and 575bhp. Until tat car is launched and goes on sale, Jaguar for the time being is only building SUVs. The company builds the F-Pace in Solihull and over in Graz, Austria the E-Pace and electric I-Pace are manufactured. Jaguar is planning on stopping production of E-Pace and I-Pace in 2025.

Jaguar is expected to follow up the GT car with an electric SUV, something designed to rival the Bentley Bentayga.
