Pic Of The Week: Jaguar F-Type

Celebrations from Jaguar fans this week, as the big cat (well, not the big cat - that's just a logo) confirmed that it will finally build a long-awaited rival to the Porsche Boxster.

There are precious few details on the new car, other than the fact that Jaguar is going to build it. But if it looks even one tenth as good as this 'F-Type' concept car from a decade ago then there should be long queues outside Jaguar dealers.

The new roadster will also be joined by a successor to the unloved X-Type and an XF estate, which will no doubt both be lovely cars. But we really want the F-Type, and we want it now.

Until then, this wallpaper will have to suffice...

    Wasn't Jag going to get Mazda to build that on the RX8 floorpan?

    Since i 1st saw the F type outside my school in 1970 i waited..........& waited.

    I hope this will be a relatively small car. If they get it right it could be awesome.

    nice pic, but if the F-Type is to succeed I reckon it needs to look very different. That one is just too much XK, which is well established already. Anything similar looking will confuse Jo Public and make the F just appear as a "poor mans" XK.

    Didn't hurt Porsche and their poor man's 911...

    The last two cars they have knocked out have been fuging ugly, so I don't hold out much hope
