Still Sizzling: F-Type rumors persist two years after concept debut


Jaguar is taking preliminary steps toward a $30,000 sports car, but the sexy, two-seat cat is unlikely to see the light of day before 2008 or 2009. Rumors of an F-Type—the concept unveiled at Detroit in 2000—have again surfaced on both sides of the Atlantic. Officially, the car still rates a description of “nothing more than an aspiration.”

Sources, however, say, “A small sports car is a long way off, but definitely the F-Type is on the table. When you want something so badly, somehow you find ways of doing it.”
Early concept designs for the small sports car are circulating around Jaguar’s design studios, the inspiration coming from the exemplary Jag, the E-type. The F-Type’s future may hinge on whether it can be a variant of either the X- or S-Type, meaning a front engine would replace the concept’s mid-engine design.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
