The idea of the Jaguar F-type is to produce an XK120 or XKE type two-seater sports car that will take on the likes of the Porsche Boxster, Mercedes SLK and BMW Z roadsters. The go ahead for the F-type project is being credited to a one billion pound investment from parent company Tata. “We have a new momentum. There is so much potential,” said Jaguar Land Rover chairman Ralf Speth. “A new sports car is coming.” The question now is when will we see it, what will be under the bonnet and where will it tip the price scales at.
Bottom line—British sports car aficionados around the world are sitting on pins and needles to see the new direction of Jaguar (under the supervision of Tata) will live up to the past heritage and be reliable to boot.
