Just heard the news today.

If I recall correctly, when asked at the F-Type concept's debut in 2002 what might prevent its production, Wolfgang Reitzle replied: "Stupidity".

It appears that Ford/PAG/Jaguar have it in spades. I am a sad man.

Correction: 'twas then CEO Jacques Nasser, per the Detroit News website [detnews.com], dated January 5, 2001:

"Standing in front of the F-Type concept at [the 2000] Detroit auto show, [then] Ford Motor Co. chief Jacques Nasser was asked what could prevent the automaker from producing the sleek roadster. 'Stupidity,' Nasser shot back. "

I guess Bill Ford and his minions must have some to spare. And I'm still sad.
