At least, that's the gist of a recent report from Car and Driver, which reports a source at Jaguar has confirmed the availability of a three-pedal setup for the upcoming F-Type sports car. An eight-speed automatic will of course be the most common equipment, but we're encouraged to hear the true manual will be available in an all-new car at Jaguar, too.
Looking forward, the same source says there's at least one more future Jaguar coming with a true manual gearbox. Which car that might be, we can only guess--but at this point, we're just happy to believe the rumors.
Here's hoping the rumors pan out.
