Jaguar has announced it will showcase a new design study based on the F-Type convertible at this weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed. The F-Type show car will be joined at the annual event by Jaguar's latest crop of performance vehicles.
Jaguar didn't reveal much else about the F-Type design study, but it could take the form of the automaker's highly-anticipated F-Type coupe. We've seen a flurry of spy shots of the F-Type coupe in recent weeks, indicating the car is nearly ready for its world premier.

The F-Type coupe is expected to launch in the United States sometime next year as a 2015 model.

In addition to the F-Type design study, Jaguar's latest XFR-S, XKR-S GT and XJR performance models will also be on hand. All three models were revealed within the last eight months at major auto shows, but the Goodwood Festival will mark the first time the cars will be in action in front of a UK crowd.

Of course the Goodwood Festival of Speed wouldn't be complete without some historical models, and to that end Jaguar will be bringing an XK 120 that set speed and endurance records in 1952, a D-type and the XJR-9 that won Le Mans in 1988.
