Jaguar F-Type Gets the Green Light

Jaguar has finally given the F-Type roadster the green light. The concept XK180 was our first preview of the F-Type back in 1998, but the model was never produced due to Jaguar’s financial troubles. But now that Jaguar is now owned by Tata the project is back on.

“We have a new momentum. There is so much potential,” said Jaguar Land Rover chairman Ralf Speth. “A new sports car is coming.”
