The buzz in the auto industry is that Jaguar is toying with the possibility of getting into production of the C-X75. Sources have been telling some auto publications that Jaguar is doing a feasibility study, which looks at the viability of producing approximately 1,000 to 2,000 C-X75s every year.

What most people are eager to hear is how successful Jaguar will be when it comes to building the turbine engines that the concept had. Sources at Jaguar have stated that it would be two or three years before the turbine technology could be implemented, followed by another three or four year period which would be required to integrate it into a vehicle.

The upside to this is that making a gas turbine engine is more affordable – it has fewer parts than the internal combustion engine has and therefore, has fewer mechanical processes that can potentially go wrong. Now that the word is that production of the concept is a possibility – it remains to be seen how and when Jaguar will make this a reality.
