Default 2013 Jaguar F-Type (nee XE)

http://blogs.insideline.com/straight...jaguar-xe.html

a) I am so freaking glad this is happening
b) Even in simple mule XK chopped form this car already looks better than its competitors.

In NA they should call it the XK-E given that so many thought the E-Type was really called the XK-E. The proportions on this are RIGHT. Let's get it done! The downside is that the XK needs SERIOUS rethinking and repositioning.

Too bad a synergy couldn't have happened between the Cadillac ATS and the small Jags.

Why doesn't Jag just make a wagon of their XF and XJ?

The proportions of the sports car looks aesthetically similar to the classic (and glamorous) E-Type. Perhaps, it could be the next-gen E-Type! I think Tata has done a wonderful job managing the Jaguar and Land Rover nameplates well.

Imo, the XE could compete with small sports coupes/roadsters class rivals such as the Audi TT, BMW Z4, Mercedes Benz SLK and even the Mazda MX5. Looking forward to the car's official release!

Tata--so far--has had Forduars in the pipeline to rely on. So they have NOT been tested yet.

The bottom line is that Tata has two options vis a vis Jaguar: (1) find a large manufacturer that doesn't make low-end crap boxes to share components with to remain at the current sales level or (2) double or triple sales.

Their challenge will be to produce VOLUME vehicles as their entry cars. Pulling the Bertone off the XF or the XJ would increase their sales abundantly.

With any luck the XE will not be another Callum-as-he-loses-his-touch design.
