New Jaguar Sportscar May Arrive in 2011

Jaguar Press and News

Somehow, despite all the sturm und drang happening in the auto world at the moment, Jaguar is seeing fit to let the rumors fly about an upcoming new sportscar for 2011, and not just any sports car, but a re-do of the mouthwatering F-Type show car. The F-Type, which was a show car from 2000, was announced for production in early 2001, but sadly the F-Type was never to see the light of day, since Jag decided to focus its resources on the ill-fated X-Type sedan.

Stories of a new Jaguar sportscar have been around ever since and now fresh comments from Mike O’Driscoll, Jag Managing Director, imply there’s a distinct possibility we’ll see a new sportscar soon. “If we were to do something, it would be a proper sports car priced like a 911. Wouldn’t it be great to launch a sports car at Geneva on the 50th anniversary of the E-type?” O’Driscoll said.

A report in AutoCar hints there’s work being done on what might be called the Jaguar XE. And even better, it looks like Lotus appears to be involved. It seems as though the XE will use a cropped version of the aluminum chassis currently used for the XK. If all goes well (cross your fingers) expect to see a concept version around this time next year.
