Last year, Jaguar told us that "if you get a convertible right, it's easy to do a coupe" in reference to a coupe version of the Jaguar F-Type, and now we might be seeing our first unofficial look at a hardtop version of the convertible. The German publication Auto Motor und Sport has dug up what it is reporting to be patent images filed by Jaguar showing the lines of the new coupe.

If these are actually patent drawings, they have definitely been enhanced with color and shadowing compared to what we usually see from OEM patent filings. We wouldn't be surprised if they are just altered images of Jaguar's C-X16 Concept, but either way, it's going to be a sharp car. On top of the new coupe, the article also says that the F-Type could be getting the same 240-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is currently used in the Jaguar XF, as well as the Land Rover LR2 and Range Rover Evoque.

      So nice, but these CAD images don't quite do it justice of course. The C-X16 was surprisingly jaw-dropping in person. In early photos I thought I wouldn't like the rear sail panels (C-pillar?) reaching all the way to the back, but I was dead wrong. In metal the proportions of the roofline and rear quarters were absolutely perfect. From that view it looked sleeker and lighter yet more aggressive than the Vantage.

      That is a nice looking car! Some great looking coupes out there now - the Toyobaru, new Vette, Alfa 4C, and the F-type. Sweet!

          The 4C is awfully cool. Not in this league, but way cool

      A turbo 4 in the F-Type coupe sounds like the engine of choice for me.

      That's pretty damn fantastic looking. Front, back, sides - every angle looks great. Its got its own unique styling that doesn't really look like an Aston, Porsche, Audi or any other car out there. I really gotta give it to Jag for reinventing themselves with modern styling that still looks classy.

      This is the car worth starving and living on the street for 6 years of whole-salary-worth monthly payments... Oh wait... I'd be living IN IT!
