Jaguar have confirmed that they will put the C-X16 into production and it will be named as the F-type.

It will launch as a two-seater convertible with a number of petrol engines.

We showed the C-X16 concept in September 2011, and the reaction to it has been so positive that we've accelerated our development of an all-new Jaguar sports car.
