Jaguar C-X75 goes into production; XJ Coupe also in the works

Jaguar unveiled the C-X75 Concept car at the 2010 Paris Auto Show to show everyone that they had plenty of potential left to uncover as an automaker. And, although the concept was a huge success and served its purpose, Jaguar still needed to prove that this potential prevailed in more than just a design study. Now, under Tata Tata ’s influential arm, Jaguar is looking into building "a more accessible variation of the C-X75 concept." Turns out the translation of this statement is a sports car with the C-X75 look and a more conventional engine. There are no details for this model just yet, nor is there any official confirmation of its production, but we’re adding it to our list of models likely to be built within the next few years.

Tata’s influence over Jaguar is further illustrated in their future lineup, which includes a lightweight XKR R-type Spyder, a high-performance diesel, and, yes, a crossover that will take on models like the Audi Q5. The British luxury automaker is also working on a coupe version of the current XJ luxury sedan featuring a shortened wheelbase and described as "much more dynamic and emotional than a Mercedes CL."

:I think it is nice to see a Jaguar whose rear haunches (fenders) look like they belong on a Jaguar.

I fully disagree; if there’s a car that looks modern and at the same time pays homage to its ancestors, this is it.

I’m fascinated with medicine to any student in the medical field. I’m sure a true engineer would not use these terms. Hell, I know three engineering students and they seem to be quite a ways more mature than yourself. You surely aren’t very "professional" by the way you type.

For a ’design professional’ it’s shocking you can see a Stingray crossed w/ a GT40. The concept looks a lot like the XJ13 model sitting on my desk. As I only have a single V12 XJS in my garage I’m obviously not as qualified as someone with 3 XJs. So I have to ask. Was it you that designed those $10 plastic chairs at IKEA?
