Many people were worried about Jaguar’s future when Tata Motors bought it from Ford. Having seen the new luxury XJ we love where Jag is heading and can’t wait to see what’s next for Jaguar.
According to Autobild, Jaguar will very likely introduce the successor of the legendary E-Type at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show.
Called XE Roadster it will go against the Mercedes-Benz SLK, BMW Z4 and Porsche Boxster.
Jaguar boss Mike O’Driscoll told Autobild: “We have a great desire to build this car.” The XE will continue the new design line with a fierce look and a distinctive grille. Body of this small roadster will be made of aluminum and rumored engines will include a 5.0-liter V8 with 385 horsepower and in supercharged version an impressive 510 hp.
