Sir,

The tremendous and well-deserved success the E-type Jaguar has achieved in the month since its announcement to the public must be most gratifying to the management and workers of Jaguar Cars Ltd.

However, I hope Sir William Lyons and Mr. Heynes do not find themselves too busy, or their production facilities too strained, to neglect or delay the development of what I will call the F-type. The F-type ? This is how I see it; and if it is ever built I will stop smoking, drinking ale, and cut down on family eating to buy one.

It will be a GT coupe, similar in mechanical and structural conception to the E-type, but somewhat more compact. It will be powered by the 2.4-litre XK engine, which because its square layout reduces piston speed and inertia stresses, should be able to rev a bit more than the “old-fashioned” long-stroke 3.8-litre unit. I estimate that this engine should be able to produce 175 bhp in production form.

If the car is lightened in proportion to the stresses involved and is slightly smaller, its power/weight ratio should not be much inferior to that enjoyed by the E-type. This should give comparable performance between the two cars, except possibly in top speed.

Respectfully, I suggest that Sir William Lyons could market this car at less than £1,000 (less tax), particularly if accommodation was a bit more stark.

I am, Yours, etc.,

RTA Innes (Flt-Lt, RAF). Chippenham.
