This may have to be my next car. Damn I am really fucking impressed. I have never driven a jaguar but if they drive well I may have to go this route. This things looks nasty and touches all the special spots for me.

I think it's a well-balanced design.. sexy yet aggressive.. I hope they have a model without a hybrid powertrain though.

This car is beautiful! If it's priced competitively with the M3 it would be a no brainer

Beautiful design, I only wish they'd keep the E-Type hatch that opens from the side, but I'm sure that will get the axe before production.

While true, they aren't even remotely in the same price range.

I hear people saying this will be priced around an M3, but looking at this car and it's technology, this has got to cost more than that. I'd take this over an M3 in a heartbeat

I recall reading articles saying that this car was designed to compete against the Cayman so my guess is that it would be priced in the range of a cayman so I would say in the 60s to low 70s.

I can't wait for this car to be built. Jaguar is advertising the hell out of it. When you go to jag's website, its the first thing you see.

Didn't pick up on that. If it can provide a driving experience at least in the same category as F30 M3, it could potentially be very successful.

You notice Audi/Merc passively competing with the M3, releasing competition 2-3 years into the M's lifetime. Jag is going straight at them.

I agree. Definitely takes a page from the Maserati GT book, but that's probably why it looks so damn good.
