'tis true, I think Jaguar have had some beautifully styled cars but the 
design and perhaps manufacturing quality (it is difficult to separate 
the two) have been poor.
Sadly yesterday Ford announced the closing of the Jaguar factory, the 
F1 team and the attempted sale of Cosworth (who has designed and built 
all the Ford labelled racing engines). Lots of unemployment. They still 
own the brand - I wonder where they will design and make them?
