British Man Cobbles Together Last Jaguar E-Type From 31-Year-Old Factory Leftovers

At the end of a production run of cars, there are inevitably bits and pieces left behind which aren't assembled and have to be taken off the production line in the boxes they came in. When production on the Jaguar E-Type ended at Browns Lane in 1974, just such a thing happened, and a Jag fanatic picked up those… » 12/05/08 12:00pm 12/05/08 12:00pm

Jaguar Registers Trademarks On C-XJ, C-XE And XE Names

Jaguar recently trademarked the names "C-XE," "C-XJ," and "XE." Could a spiritual successor to the classic E-Type finally be on the way? Sure, we've come close before, with the F-Type concept » 9/19/08 11:20am 9/19/08 11:20am, but if this new name trademarked by the company is any indication, there may be another roadster in the pipeline.

PCH, Devil You Know Or Unfamiliar Devil Edition: Jaguar XKE or BMW 502?

Welcome to Project Car Hell, where you choose your eternity by selecting the project that's the coolest... and the most hellish! Last time we took a lung-charringly deep breath of the sulfur-tainted air in the Hell Garage (where the boombox refuses to play anything other than the 1910 Fruitgum Company), we learned… » 8/06/08 5:20pm 8/06/08 5:20pm

PCH, Dead Man's Curve Edition: Stingray or XK-E?

The "what the hell is that?" field surrounding the Mitsuoka Viewt gave the Nisan March-based machine the edge over the Clenet II in yesterday's 392 Hemi Swap Edition PCH poll. Today seemed like a good day for a Choose Your Eternity matchup with a theme based on a song, since it's been over a month since the Tom Waits… » 1/22/08 5:00pm 1/22/08 5:00pm

Project Car Hell: Jaguar XK-E or Citroen SM?

After presenting our readers with the soul-wrenching choice between two V12 Jaguars in last Friday's PCH (which, by the way, had the '87 beating the '76 by a comfortable margin in your poll vote), you'd think we'd take a break from British steel for a while. But, see, that isn't how Hell works- in Hell, the only way… » 9/10/07 5:00pm 9/10/07 5:00pm
