While a lot of the media's attention towards the impending sale of Jaguar and Land Rover has been focused on the former and not the latter, it came as a surprise to hear that Tata might unload Jag soon after the deal goes down.

According to sources speaking with InsideLine, Tata purchased a 450-acre swath of land in Gurgaon, outside of New Delhi, for the explicit purpose of building Land Rovers. That's going to be a tough pill to swallow for LR's labor unions, which supported the sale of the both companies last year after Tata became the top bidder.

The source went on to say that "... Jaguar will be spun off almost immediately." To whom remains a question, but one of the other automaker's vying for a piece of the British meat pie could soon be in the race again.
