There was news recently that Jaguar have decided to start manufacturing cars in China and India and with the new life line of 1 billion pounds supplied by TATA yearly for the next 5 years, there's much more room for the designers and engineers to play around with their cars. And finally, after making concepts of what Jaguars 'could' look like for years, they can finally make them.
One fine example is this spectacular F-type. First born in 1998 as the XK180 concept, Jaguar have struggled to put it in production due to the lack of funds. But now, they can finally let the cat roar to life after more than 10 years in silence. The new F-type will definitely be the ultimate Jaguar fan-favourite with its good looks and classic Jaguar feel to it with swooping lines and crisp contours. I really salute Ian Callum who has been designing these works of art.. he never fails to draw a Jag to impress. The F-type is set to go up against the mighty Porsche Boxter. Its German precision against British flair! The hard part would be competing against Porsche's 'supercar' brand status which immediately places itself above the Jaguar just by the name itself, but Jaguar is no push-over, especially once this model makes it to the showrooms.
Not much news yet though on the engines that will be available, but I think even if it had an engine with the pace of a mule, I'd still have one. The only bad thing is that buying a Jag is like going for second best.. if you can afford a Jag of this calibre, why not get an Aston?
