Jaguar C-Type

This is the Big Cat’s all-new rival for Porsche’s Boxster – a compact two-seat roadster that promises performance and style at an affordable price.

As well as the Boxster, rivals include the Audi TT, BMW Z4 (tested on Page 50), Nissan 370Z and Mercedes SLK.

Jaguar is really on a roll having nailed it with the XF and news of the XE (the XJ220 revival) but also having axed the X-type due to poor sales (it was a crappy car!).

I think they'll nail this one if they drop the range of engines all taken from the XF into the C-type - an entry-level 235bhp 3.0-litre V6 version and a 380bhp 5.0 V8 flagship, both featuring Jaguar’s excellent six-speed automatic gearbox, complete with steering wheel-mounted paddles.

This Boxster rival, along with the XE, are on the drawing board, though, and would arrive in 2012 at the earliest.
