And in 2001 PR Newswire saidLikely to be called the "F-Type," the car might debut in the early 1990s
However the JEC have since revealed thatThe Jaguar F-TYPE roadster has been given the production go-ahead
In March 2008, The Motor Report saidon the 4th January 2001, Jaguar announced that the F-Type had been given the production go-ahead. Sadly, on May 17th 2002, the decision was reversed
Under the headlineThe Jaguar F-Type will be a smaller, light-weight sportscar that would be a direct competitor to Porsches 911 and likely based upon the E-Type inspired F-Type concept
Then in May 2008 Auto Express saidJaguar F-Type production hinted at by Tata boss
They seem rather sure and showed this "photo", crediting it to "Larson"British firm set to build cut-price Ferrari California.
In an article which basically states that nothing is for certain but Road and Track magazine have made some guesses.Jaguar F-Type to be based on XF platform, launch in 2012?
I'm sure Jaguar will be happy about CAR detailing their future model in their magazine three years prior to its launch...The new Jag XE is revealed in full in the latest September 2009 issue of CAR Magazine
Agree :thumb:leftlanetruckin said:Still not worried about it.
How can selling more models be the beginning of the end?
All they are trying to do is improve their sales numbers, which makes sense to me.
Will they stop making true 4wd's? I doubt it myself.
Did they do a little homework and actually see how many folks use the true 4wd? I bet they have an idea that probably under 10% actually do. :think:
Improving sales numbers and having a couple of models supporting the true models they want to make is perfect sense, as well as a proven strategy. Jeep are doing it, and indeed have been doing it, for years. Never stopped them making the Rubicon, or offering every model with a true 4wd low transfer case did it? :thumb:
If them making a few tree hugging models keeps them in business, I don't have an issue with it.
Sorry, but I dont immediately jump on the "Oh God its all going to end next month" boat. :lol:
Not concerned what everyone else thinks neither myself....Tim (Scotland) said:In principle its a great idea.
However the concern is that everyone will end up thinking that Land Rovers are all 2wd mall crawlers.
