  1. De Jaguar-Land-Rover-fabriek in Solihull, waar een herstructurering naakt, heeft nu ook prijs. De gegevens van meer dan 600 arbeiders liggen er op straat. Namen, disciplinaire maatregelen, gebruikte ziektedagen en ook… een rode lijn die toekomstig ontslag betekent. Het lek werd in de media gebracht door de Britse Huffington Post. JLR deed het eerst af als ‘fake news’, maar moest inmiddels op die uitspraak terugkomen. Een pijnlijke PR-blunder. Afgelopen maand maakte Jaguar-Land-Rover bekend dat het zo’n 1.000 arbeidsplaatsen zou elimineren in Solihull. Daar wordt onder meer de Range Rover Sport, de Jaguar F-Pace en de Jaguar XE gebouwd. bron auto55.be
  2. Plans to relaunch the Jaguar XK are gathering momentum, with the firm’s head of product strategy confirming that it is working on a proposal for a whole family of sports cars. Hanno Kirner, who oversees product strategy for the next decade at Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), told Autocar the company remains committed to the sports car segment, despite the Jaguar E-Pace and F-Pace SUVs dominating the firm’s sales. In 2017, the F-Pace accounted for two-fifths of all Jaguar sales. The XK was discontinued in 2014. “The F-Type has been a huge success,” he said. “We love sports cars – and I use the plural quite deliberately. Whether that is delivered by a body variant or something else remains to be seen, but for now let’s just say that the body type is very important for us.” Kirner’s comments echo those of Jaguar’s head of design, Ian Callum, who has often spoken of his personal desire to develop a family of sports cars. Last year, Callum hinted that work on a re-envisaged XK had begun when he told Autocar: “I want a two-seater [the F-Type] and a 2+2. We’re working on something now. There’s nothing approved, but we instigate in design.” It is believed that Callum’s team completed a design concept for an XK replacement prior to the second-generation model being axed. However, the latest project is believed to be entirely new and unlikely to be launched until at least 2021. Both Kirner’s longer-term planning role and his comments suggest the creation of a new sports car family is dependent on JLR’s next-generation platform strategy. Today’s F-Type is based on a heavily modified version of the discontinued XK’s platform and is due for replacement in around 2019. The new F-Type is expected to use a development of that architecture, which is believed to be flexible enough to be adapted back to a 2+2 layout. “I love the idea of a flexible architecture that can give us anything,” said Kirner. Kirner also talked up the possibility of developing future platforms to be flexible enough to accept multiple powertrain types. However, it isn’t clear if this would apply to next-gen sports cars, because it is not certain if even the latest modified underpinnings could be adapted for a plug-in hybrid powertrain’s ancillaries. “There is an argument that says hybrid sports cars might cater for both the environment and the excitement such cars deliver,” he said. “A lot of people like the sound of an engine. That’s a fact, and it is a defining part of a sports car. “I absolutely believe that there will be electric sports cars one day, but I also believe there may be a different step of combining the battery and an engine. At Jaguar, all I can say for now is that we will continue to invest in sports cars.” Initially, it is expected that the next F-Type – and by association the reborn XK – will be powered by JLR’s regular family of Ingenium engines. These would include the entry-level four-cylinder 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol unit with 296bhp and straight six powertrains in various states of tune. The latter engines would replace the Ford-sourced V6s, as found in the current F-Type. Both the F-Type and the XK would likely get hot iterations along the lines of those available today, including range-topping SVR derivatives tuned by JLR’s Special Vehicle Operations division. The F-Type SVR uses a 5.0-litre V8 with 572bhp and covers 0-62mph in 3.7sec, although the extra weight of a four-seater would increase this time slightly. Upon its launch in 2012, the F-Type was regarded as crucial to Jaguar re-establishing its credentials in the two-seat sports car market. Although overall sales have been modest in the context of the firm’s other models, they have held steady in Europe throughout the car’s lifetime and grown substantially in some markets, including the US and China. The F-Type was also seen as critical to underpinning Jaguar’s heritage as a sports car maker prior to it branching out into the booming SUV segment. With the market set to become ever more crowded, achieving differentiation by playing to authentic brand values is increasingly viewed as critical by established car makers. Additionally, at one stage, three-quarters of sales of the F-Type convertible were to buyers who were entirely new to the Jaguar brand and, as such, the model was hailed for breaking established views of the manufacturer’s cars.

    F-type

    bedankt voor de snelle respons robert !! PS misschien kan een moderator dit even aanpassen: ik kon geen F-type tag toevoegen bij de aanmaak van deze topic? maar hij bestaat wel heb ik al gemerkt.

    F-type

    Ondanks een model dat reeds op de markt is sinds 2013 vind ik hier nog geen topic over deze auto ?? Zijn er hier geen liefhebbers of eigenaren die ervaringen kunnen delen? Vooral dan mbt het model met de 2.0 L turbo motor (ingenium). Alvast bedankt voor de reacties.

    black XJS cat

    When Jaguar designed the XJS they designed it as a coupe, figuring new laws against convertibles would make it impossible to pass otherwise. They were wrong. But by the time they discovered that little tidbit of pertinent information they didn’t have the resources to make a convertible design fast enough themselves so they turned to Hess & Eisenhart to convert them. A stopgap was to make the XJ/SC which required a cross brace hoop over the cabin to effectively replace the roof structure, a ‘perimeter frame’ round the cockpit, a slightly reinforced rear bulkhead, and a bracing frame across the bodyshell under the rear suspension. With all this being done, no crash tests were required. The rear seats were deleted though, replaced by a package shelf. Ironically the result was an open car more rigid than the coupe. The XJ-SC used the existing coupe bodyshell, which was then taken to the Park Sheet Metal Company in Coventry where it was modified. This involved the removal of the flying buttresses and the addition of underbody strengthening. The ’shells were then returned to Browns Lane for painting, installation of mechanical parts, electrics and interior trim. After road-testing, the cabriolets then ventured to Aston Martin Tickford Body Works at Bedworth, Nuneaton for the roof trimming and hood to be fitted. Then it was back to Browns Lane – again – for fitting of exterior trim and road testing. read more ...

    sorry, ik was sinds de wijzigingen wat minder actief op JFNL en was me niet bewust dat dit een probleem is?! ik zal me naar de nieuwe regels schikken.

    bredere spaakwielen

    ... en intussen de gewenste velgen sneller gevonden dan gehoopt. lang leve het wereldwijde interweb. voorlopig rechts en links dezelfde bandenmaat (215 75 r15), maar de ruimte is beperkt om nog breder te gaan; de velgbreedte rechts 6J (16cm) en links 7,5J (20cm) de sleutel om de spinners los/vast te kloppen past nog maar net. de centrale moer zit nu veel dieper. zeg maar quasi gelijk met de velgrand. straks nog een poging doen om de spaakvelgen in matzwart te doen, want het chroom blijvend schoon houden is aan mij niet besteed wordt vervolgd ...

    en HIER nog een handige tool die je helpt bij het uitrekenen hoeveel je spoorbreedte wijzigt wanneer je velgen met andere ET (offset) en of breedte monteert.

    zouden ze dan toch zo te koop zijn zonder achteraf bricolage ? KLIK

    bredere spaakwielen

    die OEM's van 16"x7.0J breedte zijn helaas voor een V12 vnf 1971, mijn OTS werd al in '68 geboren wat die tweede set betreft; mijn huidige zijn 15"x6.0J. dus dan wordt de upgrade naar 6.5J zeer prijzig voor 1/2 inch meer.
