No F in future: Jaguar unlikely to build F-Type two-seat sports car
(08:35 July 26, 2002) "AutoWeek"
The is-it-dead-or-isn’t-it saga of Jaguar’s “postponed” F-Type mid-engined two-seat sports car seems to have been settled by Ford chief executive Nick Scheele. “It is uncertain whether the F-Type would ever make it into production,” Scheele says.
Suppliers on the project have mothballed their work. “We’ll lose the people that have worked on it and with the inevitable legal changes, when we start again, it’ll be from scratch,” said one.
Jaguar chiefs have said the F-Type could still be built—but some years after its originally scheduled 2005 introduction date. One possibility is for the F-Type to become a platform variant of the next S-Type or X-Type—suggesting a launch around 2007 or 2008.

My next Ford.....
