I keep seeing a several of the SAME car a couple times a week. I've seen a dark blue, a white & 2 bright reds. I am in love ! Unless it costs a bundle, I want one. But....for the 1st time in 50 years, I don't know what the heck kinda car it is.

Okay. It's a convertible, It's kinda small, but not REAL small. It looks like a dead ringer for a Jaguar XJ convert. I think it's a 2-seater. Not positive.
It has the identical front end - minus the louvers in the hood of a Jag XJ. It has almost identical sides to the XJ, but the back is similiar to a Jag X-type. It has a wide bar of chrome up high where the back meets the flat top of the deck lid and it's slightly curved like an ark. It goes from tailamps to the other tailamp, and splits & encircles each lamp. It's much much smaller than a Jag XJ. It's larger than a Miata - it's like the size of the last generation Camaro.
I've gone to kbb.com and then onto "convertibles" and looked at every one. It's not there. I've checked Aston Martin, Nope, not that, and Miata and WVs and every convertible on KBB. I think it's new, as I had never seen one before mid June. Everytime I see one it's going fairly fast, in the oppisite direction than I am going, and it seems to have no I.D. on any of them, but I always ee them moving so it maybe be small and discrete.
The tops are always down - so I do not know what kinda shape the back window is - but, it's definately a Jag knock-off all the way around.
Nobodies gonna guess that it's anything but a Jag.

Any ideas? Anyone see anything that looks like what I described ?? HELP!

Maybe that new Maserati convertible?

Otherwise, I suppose if you looked around on Dupont Registry for long enough you might find it.

Yea, I was thinking the XK, but he seems to think it isn't a Jag...and all the pictures I found of the XK have the hood louvers, which his doesn't...

Nope. None of those. It looks the most like that new Jag, but it's definately smaller and has the oval grille like that, but not the mesh-work, instead a single thin bar all the way across, with a small circle in the middle, where the Jag pictured has a much larger round emblem. The side has a slight dip in the top of the door, like where you put your elbow, similiar to the Avanti - No, it's not an Avanti Convertible, either. The back end is a mix of a Saturn Sky & and a Jag X-Type. The whole of the parts is drop-dead georgous.

DuPont Registry is a great idea. :thumbsup:

No No, definately not. Not the trrademark Aston grille and ALOT small in size. I'd say 15% smaller.

That Jag XK8 looks identical in the front. The sides I am not sure on, and that is definately NOT the back ! It has a totally different back. Next time I see one, I am giving chase. I am beginning to think it's a kit-carbased upon a Ford Focus or similiar small car.
Only thing different in front is that the circular emblem in the grille of the Jag is much larger. This unknown car's circular emblem is the size of a quarter.
