    @Peter – I think your personal biases are clouding your opinion and judgment. Who would have thought that the parent group that owns the cheapest car in the world would work towards enriching two luxury car brands? I learned from that the owner of Tata Motors has invested billions of dollars out of his own pocket into the company — not just funds from the corporate portfolio. More importantly, he has a genuine enthusiasm and energy focused on the company’s success and well being that wasn’t there when Ford held the reins. Jaguar and Land Rover are moving forward with big improvements and the employees are picking on Ratan Tata’s positive energy.

    I have lost my taste for Jags now that it’s Indian owned .There is something really wrong the badging much like those tacky Bollywood films .The rear leaper is obscene .I do like the front end but there is something confusing about this car and it seems more Toyota then Jag.I have been a fan of Callum’s cars for years but there is input not completely from his studio.I know that they expect to sell this to an upcoming Indian nouveau riche and maybe there right but it does not look good in America any more.To me the Lincoln MKS works with this design language much better and we know the studios helped each other out before they unhitched .Time for a new dream vehicle because Jags not building them.
