Jaguar cancels its over $1 million hybrid supercar plans

Images and details of the proposed Jaguar hybrid supercar turned up a while back. The car sounded very interesting and certainly looked cool. However, I'm sure I wasn't alone in wondering why Jaguar want to be creating a hybrid supercar at this point. The answer to that question is, Jaguar isn't.

The car company has announced that it has canceled any plans to build and sell the C-X75 Hybrid Supercar. Jaguar blames tough marketing conditions that have made building the $1.1 million per unit car unviable. I suspect building the car wasn't viable last week either and now that Jaguar has wrung all the headlines a can of the vehicle it has canceled plans.

If you're ready to drop huge money on a hybrid supercar you will have to stick with the Porsche 918. It's too bad Jaguar can't just use sexy design it made up for the hybrid supercar in a significantly cheaper vehicle.

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, Dodge We all knew That Kid. As a freshman, he was a big kid, overweight but surprisingly strong. Still, he was often picked on for his size. Then, he chatted with the football coach, who convinced him that his true calling was on the team's offensive line. After a season on the freshman squad and a summer of two-a-days, this mild-mannered, husky high schooler returned for his sophomore year as a big, imposing, solid piece of ...

The British May Be Coming: Jaguar Land Rover Considering U.S. Plant

Oct 22 2014 6:16pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Jaguar Land Rover wants to colonize South Carolina, or at least a few hundred acres of it, for its first-ever U.S. factory.
