Jaguar plans Porsche 911 Turbo fighting F-Type

Reports have surfaced indicating that Jaguar is planning on making a very powerful coupe version of its new F-Type. The car will reportedly be intended to rival the popular Porsche 911 Turbo S. Currently that Porsche Turbo S produces 533 hp. Reports indicate that the Jaguar F-Type Coupe would produce as much as 700 hp. The Jaguar representative told AutoExpress, "We have done an R-S version with over 700bhp that will do over 200mph – it’s going to be insane.” The image you see here isn't the official car, but is an image based on the Jaguar C-X16 concept car revealed in Germany last year.

All details on the 700 hp F-Type are unknown at this time, speculation is that it could use turbocharged and supercharged 1.6-liter gasoline engines paired with multiple electric motors. The F-type Coupe in standard form is expected to launch next year. The 700 hp version isn't expected to hit production until at least 2016.

1964 Honda S600 Appreciation

Aug 21 2014 1:40am CDT | Source: autoMedia.com

The S600 evolved from the company’s line of S-roadsters - including the debut Honda automobile, the S360 - and became an important part of the company’s entry into the automotive world. In the early 1960s, the world was in love with the roadster. Some of today’s most prized designs like the E-Type Jaguar and Lotus Elan were introduced in that ti ...

Jaguar Promises Infotainment System that Doesn’t Suck for 2016 XE Sedan

Aug 20 2014 3:34pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

While we’re already looking forward to the upcoming compact Jaguar XE sports sedan on account of its, er, heavy use of lightweight aluminum and compact rear-wheel-driveness, we’re also enthused to hear about the installation of a decent infotainment system—which would be a first for a recent Jaguar. The new system, called InControl, will be fitted to all XE models and uses an eight-inch touch-screen interface instead of one of tho ...

Vanishing Astons? Current DB9, Vantage Fail to Meet Airbag Regs; U.S. Models in Jeopardy

Aug 20 2014 2:39pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Two Aston Martins were missing from last weekend’s Pebble Beach Concours, but since the foursome of “Q” cars and a new V12 Vantage S roadster distracted the crowd, no one noticed. According to petitions the automaker sent to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Aston Martin would have revealed the next-gen DB9 and Vantage this month (and very likely at Pebble) were there not years of losses and “substantial economic hard ...

Jaguar could give all-new XE sedan the SVR treatment

Aug 20 2014 12:18pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Jaguar’s XE sedan is shaping up to be a promising alternative to the German sport sedan competition, but what’s a proper BMW 3 Series or Mercedes C-Class fighter without a high-performance variant? That’s the latest word from Britain’s AutoExpress, which suggests Jaguar is planning a V8-powered SVR version of the new XE sedan to go toe-to-toe with the likes of the BMW M3 and Mercedes C63 AMG. Tweaked by Jaguar Land Rover’s in-house Special Vehicle Operations tuning arm ...
