Remember the Jaguat C-X75 concept displayed at the recent Paris Motorshow ? If you dream of owning a unit, your dream might be coming true as Jaguar is considering producing the supercar.

Details are limited, but sources have told AutoCar that the company is studying the feasibility of building 1,000 to 2,000 C-X75s a year. However, the decision really comes down to whether or not Jaguar can create the concept's turbine engines.

In an interview, Tony Harper, whom is Jaguar's head of advanced powertrains, stated "We're talking two-to-three years for implementation of the gas turbine technology, then another three-to-four years to integrate into a vehicle." While this sounds like an expensive and drawn out process, building a gas turbine engine is relatively affordable because "there's much less to go wrong. There's about 100 times fewer parts in a gas turbine than an internal combustion engine."

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
