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...

    This design doesn't fit with the new design language. Expect something much different.

    The last two cars they have knocked out have been fuging ugly, so I don't hold out much hope
    You cany be real, Jag make sexy cars. Fact!
    Being a Porsche driver I do not think you are best placed to comment automotive aesthetics - have you seen the Panamera???

    The Cayman is the best looking Porsche, but only because the others are so frigging ugly.
    Ah, nice to read that!
    I agree that the Cayman is probably the only not-too-bad looking Porsche.

    You have to choose between:
    - an antique sort of Morgan-historied coupé, that makes a ghastly rattle noise, absolutely not sporting; a bit like large Schuco wind-up toy) ;
    - the Cayman which somehow looks better than all the other Porsches;
    - the dull soap-shaped Boxter;
    - the vulgar bloated Panamera! I really thought Porsche was as last going to make a super car, but (as they said in TopGear) one would prefer having trouble with a Maserati or an Aston, rather than being seen in a Panamera!
    You forgot the most important porker for sport car enthusiasts:

    Some say it's a box on wheels. Some say it's heavy like pot whale.

    All I know: It's called the Cayenne!

    Back to topic:
    Except of the bunny ears it is a good looking car. Even the frameless window could be working (Spyker has also frameless windows). I hardly see it on sale at 30k-ish. But if so, they can sell shiploads.

    ok, so I love the first XK (first "fast" car I've ever driven in -> 4L XK8), I like the second one, like the XF, love the new XJ, but I seem to be the only one that doesn't really like this :/

    Why don't Jag just make a replacement for the market to fill the hole forever left by a car with a design council award (as the e type was)and loved by most,........ the TVR GRIFFITH
    It'd be even better if TVR did that! And the Jag? Take away those ears, and it would be stunning.
