Should the new F type Jaguar be mid engined or front engined..

The last report I read is that the car has moved from front engined to mid engined...to better use parts from its larger network of existing parts..

Do you guys have a preference?

Jaguar postpones plans to develop F-Type roadster


By MARK RECHTIN
Automotive News

LOS ANGELES - Jaguar Cars Ltd. has postponed plans to develop its much-anticipated
F-Type roadster, citing budget pressures and a need to concentrate on other products.

Jaguar has 17 product programs coming in the next four years. They include redesigns of the XJ sedan, XK grand-touring convertible and the S-Type.

Concentrating on those programs was seen as more important to Jaguar's long-term success than the F-Type, spokesman Simon Sproule said.

Said Sproule: "Jaguar is still emotionally wedded to doing the F-Type. We just need to do other things more urgently."
