Jaguar Cancels Plans for C-X75 Hybrid Supercar

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.

New Land Rover Discovery Sport makes its debut

Sep 2 2014 6:05pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Land Rover’s all-new-for-2015 Discovery — or, more accurately, Discovery Sport for this new model is not an LR4/Discovery replacement — is the very embodiment of the very modern English luxury sport utility. Gaze upon its svelte visage and you’ll find styling cues from the company’s majestic Range Rover and, not surprisingly since they share so much technology, the company’s cute-as-a-bug Evoque. Whatever its origin, the Sport is the snazziest SUV to e ...

That Sinking Feeling: National Corvette Museum Reverses Earlier Decision, Will Fill in Sinkhole

Sep 2 2014 3:20pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

Courtesy of a Detroit Free Press report, we must fill you in on an update on the National Corvette Museum’s ongoing sinkhole bonanza. Do you remember the Kentucky Corvette museum that partially collapsed late last year when a gigantic sinkhole opened beneath it and swallowed eight Chevrolet sports cars of various vintages? Our last visitation of the sinkhole saga tackled the museum’s decision to keep the sinkhole open, perhaps with one or two of the damaged cars placed within it, ...

2015 Infiniti Q70L

Sep 2 2014 11:06am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Sedan, Infiniti, Luxury, Quick Spins A quick look at a scatter plot that charts rear legroom against luxury sedan MSRPs reveals a dearth of spacious bargains - few, if any, luxury sedans offer exceptionally spacious rear accommodations at a relatively low starting price. To fill the vacuum, Infiniti has made its Q70 available in a Q70L variant - in English, long wheelbase - for 2015. The artist formerly known as the Infiniti M has been available in stretched-out form in ...

Sep 2 2014 9:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

We’ve told you about Jaguar’s race-ready F-Type Project 7 before, but now thanks to Justin Bell we are getting a glimpse of what the car is really all about. Jaguar built the Project 7 to celebrate its racing heritage that dates back to the 1950s when the D-Type won LeMons three times. After the success of the D-Type, Jaguar created the E-Type and brought beauty to the scene in the 1960s. Between the two cars, Jaguar’s cat ...

Jaguar XF

Sep 1 2014 11:46am CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The Jaguar XF is a luxurious and powerful mid-size sedan that’s also the most affordable way to get into a Jag--at least, until the 2016 Jaguar XE comes along. The XF is a rival for vehicles like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6, Cadillac CTS, and the BMW 5-Series. As a Concept C-XF, first shown at the 200 ...
