5. Jaguar C-X17 concept

Like your mother hopefully told you, it’s what’s inside that counts. That’s especially true here because the C-X17 concept is much more than a preview of what might ultimately become a production crossover for Jaguar. The company insists that it hasn’t laid plans to build something like this yet, but its very presence in Frankfurt this week suggests otherwise.

Regardless of whether or not the company decides to build a sport crossover, and it really should, the platform is what counts the most here. Jaguar’s new scalable aluminum platform set to underpin an upcoming midsize sport sedan is hiding underneath. Most importantly, the brand promises to have models in showrooms by 2015 for global markets and 2016 for North America.

    What’s the Freaking Lambo?

  • Robby G

    I really hope that Opel leads to some sort of new Buick. The brand really needs a shake up.

  • Atticus

    Porsche does it again with it’s 918 Spyder !

  • ez2deal

    Concepts are not really a “car”.

  • Slick

    Love it!

  • Shem

    Robby G, Sure because opel were German Chevy. So General Motors should works some connection whatever GM’s cars make for better fuel techs with electric engine.

  • Billy

    What about the S Coupé concept ?

  • ColumWood

    It wasn’t an easy choice to come up with the list. Still, the S Coupe does nothing for me personally.

  • Pipeline

    The list is stupid. It has nothing to do with what should be the direction of the industry regarding cars on the street. It could just as easily be called the “Top ten weirdos.” You really need to get in touch with reality.
