Porsche 919 Hybrid at Le Mans
We are trying our hand at some live blogging about the 24 Hours of Le Mans, so keep checking back through the day and evening as we post updates on all of the action.
The Jaguar F-Type is one of the best sports cars to be produced by the British luxury car maker and it will now be a little more affordable to buy one. It was announced today that the 2017 F-Type will be offered with a lower priced entry level model that will save you as much as $3,600 over the current starting price.
For 2017 the lineup will consist of the entry level F-Type, F-Type S and F-Type R. The F-Type will now start at $61,400 for the coupe and $65,400 for the convertible.
What is a sports car? The definition of the word according to the dictionary is “a low-built car designed for performance at high speeds.” Traditionally these have always been fairly light machines that have two doors (many often also include that they only seat two) and are capable of decent performance.
However, companies like Porsche and Jaguar appear to be reinventing the term. Just today Jaguar released new information about their new F-PACE compact SUV calling it a sports car. Porsche has done the same with the Macan, Cayenne and Panamera.
Staring on August 13th and going until the 16th Laguna Seca will be where a racing enthusiast will want to be. At the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion folks will get a chance to see historic race cars and the men that drove many of them take to the track.
Getting to see vintage racers on the in action instead of just on display is a rare treat. But what about the future of the performance car? They have that covered at Automotive Alley.
The 2016 Jaguar F-PACE is set to make its debut at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September. But before the compact SUV is shown to the public it is getting put through its paces.
The F-PACE will be a first for the luxury car maker, a performance crossover. It will be positioned to go against the likes of the Porsche Macan in what is a quick growing market in the automotive industry.
