If these spy shots are anything to go by, then supercar manufacturers might want to pull up their socks and get ready for when the Jaguar F-type Coupe finally arrives.

Currently, the fabulous F-type is only available as roadster while Jaguar continue to fine tune the finishing touches on the roadsters sibling, the coupe.

The official debut for the F-type Coupe is scheduled in just a couple of weeks time – at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

There have been many rumours doing the rounds n exactly what the F-type Coupe will have in store for us.

However, one rumour that is definitely worth extra attention is that Jaguar are also planning a F-Type R-S Coupe.

And luckily for us, with these spy shots obtained by CarBuzz, we now have solid proof that Jaguar is, in fact, building an F-Type R-S Coupe.

A prototype for the much anticipated car was seen doing some early testing, although the actual production version is still at least a year away.

We can also be sure that this is not a standard F-Type Coupe because of one simply fact: the brakes. The yellow calipers are bigger than those that you would expect to find on a standard F-Type Coupe.

The sneaky photographer who got these shots, also claim that the words “Jaguar Carbon Ceramic” were stamped on them.

Another thing that gives us the inkling that this is NOT a standard F-Type Coupe, is that this specific F-Type has cross-drilled brake rotors, something that is not visible on the present F-Type.

Also, Jaguar has placed extra camouflage on the air intakes and on either side of the front bumper.

What to expect from the F-Type Coupe’s engine? Well, something quite amazing. We can expect to see a supercharged V8 from the S model in there, but the output will most likely be increased from 495hp to around 550hp.

If, in fact, the F-Type Coupe ends up with around 550hp, it will put itself in direct competition with Porsche’s 911 Turbo. This will make a rather big impact on the supercar world, which then begs the question: Jaguar or Porsche?

You decide!
