Actually, The Jaguar Sportscar IS An F-Type. Only Not.

Hey, someone from Jaguar talked to the press about the firm’s forthcoming sportscar and let them use their name! Jag’s Julian Rendell tells Autoweek that an “affordable, front-engine sportscar” is likely to be approved by management. No kids, it won’t be an R8-caliber supercar, but rather a long-awaited F-Type. Only it will be called the XE. Which sounds like a trim level on some D-segment commuter car.

    damn that's nice. a new jag i like. i prefer this design to the current xk. i'm not bothered by their choice of model designation.

    Is there ANY chance they could outsource engineering to Mazda? Why not? It already looks like an old Miata.

    Looks a bit more like the MG than the Miata, but that's just pulling hairs.

    I wish it was better looking.
