We don't normally show poor quality leaked photos, but that's because the car in question is rarely even remotely as attractive as the gorgeous new Jaguar F-Type roadster.

Do you like what you see? Will it be a serious competitor to Audi's TT, BMW's Z4 and Mercedes' SLK, let alone Porsche's recently updated Boxster? Combining classic proportions with Jaguar's thoroughly modern design language, the F-Type roadster is a stunner, looking much richer than its targeted $50,000 to $55,000 base price point.

The photos were first published by after being leaked from within Jaguar's inner circle. They appear to show a production-ready 2013 Jaguar F-Type, a car we've long known would battle it out in the premium compact roadster segment. While quite a number of exterior shots show the car from every possible angle not to mention in both red and grey exterior paint, a lone interior photo gives us an idea of the F-Type's upscale environ along with what looks to be a manual transmission.

A beautifully shaped car from the front, the F-Type's rear quarters are even more craftily penned, with a subtle cue from the XF sedan in the circular "bump" set into the elongated taillights. Frontal styling is closely related to the 2011 Jaguar C-X16 Concept, while flush door handles a la Aston Martin cut down on wind resistance while adding an exotic element.

We'll get confirmation about the new F-Type along with all of the important details, such as powertrains and features at the Paris show in a couple of days, so until then enjoy the gallery.
