Production Years and Numbers

Hello,

Quick question for the historians… Any idea what model year F-type actually started to ship to the United states? I have seen 2012 and 2013 right hand drives advertised in the UK and elsewhere. I am guessing the 2012’s are typos but maybe the 2013’s are real. I have not seen any 2013’s for sale in the US. Websites I have found said production started in 2013 so I am assuming that was for the 2014 model year at least how we count it here in the US.

If anyone could shed some light on it, I would appreciated. Thanks!

Good question! I always thought 2014 was the first model year. I’d be interested to hear something definitive on this.

Wikipedia gives 2013 as the first year of production.

From Tata’s Annual Report (https://investors.tatamotors.com/financials/68-ar-html/pdf/Tata%20Motors%20AR%202012-13.pdf):

Any true model year 2013s will be convertibles. They all were. The coupe revision of the drop-top original debuted in 2014.

Calendar year, yes. But model year 2015, no?
