Jaguar’s F-Type is already available in a number of variants but the expansion of the sports car range is far from complete. The strategy mimics that used by Porsche for its 911, which caters to a wide variety of buyers, and it’s one Mercedes-AMG plans to implement for its new GT sports car.

So what other F-Type variants can we expect from Jaguar in the near future? We know the F-Type will eventually get the SVR treatment as well as an entry-level four-cylinder model. But before these arrive, the stunning sports car is likely to arrive in all-wheel-drive flavor.

All-wheel-drive F-Types have already been spotted in the U.K. sporting “AWD” badges on their trunklids, and according to CAR we’ll see the new variant formally introduced at next month’s 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Adding all-wheel drive to the F-Type is a natural move for Jaguar as it provides the British automaker with a direct rival for the all-paw 911. All-wheel drive is also a popular option with buyers located in the northern states of the U.S., so the move should help boost sales.

Other upgrades planned for the F-Type include a long-overdue manual option. A new F-Type R convertible is also just around the corner.

Stay tuned for an update in the lead up to the 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show, press days for which run November 18-20.
