About the XJ-S category


(system) #1

For discussing the Jaguar XJ-S, introduced in 1975 and made through 1996. Also the XJ220, 1992 - 1994.

Use the following paragraphs for a longer description, or to establish category guidelines or rules:

  • Why should people use this category? What is it for?

  • How exactly is this different than the other categories we already have?

  • What should topics in this category generally contain?

  • Do we need this category? Can we merge with another category, or subcategory?

Why would the XJ220 be included in this forum?

Great question Kirby…should be placed in concept/experimental/developmental/limited production machines…??? Malcom Sayer had little to do with the project AIR. 6cyl turbo engine probably almost killed the whole thing off inspite of a great engine, etc. Where are the XJ15’s…raced in their own class for $1mil in Monaco…bunch of them…at least 2 in OZ …Jordan Roddy imported one from Japan and restored it and sold before he ever got to race it.

For so many years the XJ220 has gone unnoticed mainly because they did not have a home by nature of their name XJ220 it speaks for its self it belongs to the XJ Register & belongs with the XJ-S’s

If an XJ220 were the only Jaguar I owned, I’d be mucho upset about having to subscribe to the XJ-S list and be inundated with the torrent of discussion that have zero relation to my car.

Here’s a better idea: There’s a “Racing” forum, isn’t there? The XJ220 belongs there.
