Just because the economies of the world are slowing down doesn’t mean Jaguar is. Earlier we saw that plans for the new XJ will be revealed later this year, and now it seems the F-Type roadster is still on track for 2011.
Jaguar’s corporate parent Tata has an attitude toward the current economy we’d like to see from other manufacturers. "Putting exciting projects on the back burner is the thing we should not do," said Chairman Ratan Tata. "Certainly we must attend to business by doing our utmost to cut costs and reduce time-frames, but above all we must ensure that we come out of this slump ahead of where we were – with exciting cars like the roadster that show where we want to go."
