Tata confirms interest in Jaguar, Land Rover
Autoblog's imaginary industrial espionage bureau has intercepted the final official communications:
Ford Motor Company
Attn: Alan Mulally
Seeing as you're not doing anything with them, and we wouldn't mind expanding into other markets, we'll take Jaguar and Land Rover off your hands. They're a little beat-up, especially Jaguar, which we suspect isn't firing on all cylinders. If you want to think in historical terms, consider our offer a chance to reverse the colonization of the past – we would be the ones ordering the English around. Please give us a call if you're interested in selling, we'll have our guy look the properties over to make sure we're not missing any issues that'd make them total clunkers. We love the prestige and style, but they're definite projects. We expect that once they're restored, they'll bring a higher price.
