Love the old Jaguars. The curving wheel wells. It makes the vehicle so beautiful. I wish they could have found a way to incorporate that into some of their new designs.

With how long ago that was there's only so much you can expect.

The F-Type is the curviest it gets.

Yea I think that the most I could expect is something like the Project 7. You can see some of those hips at the back. Maybe they could add a slight bit more curve to the front wheel arch.

Yes.

See, that's the plus side to parts of the car like that, it's easy to carry over things like that, as for other area's, it's not, not with the objective of bringing forward a new design language meanwhile bringing some of the past with it.

I think that the curved wheel arches can be better integrated into higher end models and sportscars, not the lower end more entry-level vehicles. If they do a more retro styled car then they can go with it more, but really they moved on to another design language at this point. I just love some of the old Jaguar designs.

You do have to consider how that plays into design and what it does to it especially at a time when they're coming out with a new design approach.

Can't happen everywhere.
