Why are Jaguar owners so Passionate about their cars?


Jaguar owners are proud of their cars, but do most owners know where the heritage began and how the company’s success was shaped on the track?

The British car manufacturer is headquartered in Whitley, Coventry, England and got their start in 1922 by making motorcycle sidecars (Swallow Sidecar Company). The SS company name was changed to Jaguar after World War II. It wasn’t until 1966 that the company merged with the British Motor Corporation and many other mergers and partnerships followed. Currently the company is listed as a Jaguar Land Rover brand, but is owned by Tata Motors of India.

It all began in 1935 when the “SS Jaguar” name graced the front of a couple of sport model Saloon’s (sedans) named SS 90 and SS 100 (equipped with a 2.5 liter engine). Jaguar then launched a series of sports cars that would get the World’s attention: The Jaguar XK series (XK120, XK140, and XK150) and the Jaguar E-Type (1961-1975). The iconic E-Type also had success on the track as the company developed their engineering and race proven technology. Jaguar was no stranger to the checkered flag winning the Le Mans 24 hours race in 1951, 1953, and 1955 thru 1957.

Most Jaguar owners buy their car to be much more than just a daily driver to get them from point A to point B. They understand the historic legacy that the brand has in its DNA and also know just exciting it is to sit behind the wheel of a Jaguar. More commonly you see this type of passion and enthusiasm in brands like the Ford Mustang or the Chevy Corvette, but this British car company has managed to stir up that same desire and following in their vehicles today. Just look at the company’s slogan of “It’s Good to Be Bad” and the use of Villains in their new line of popular TV ads. Another indication of the popularity of the brand is the fact that Jaguar has some of the most active car forums and Facebook pages on the internet today.

Well, Jeremy Clarkson says that with a jag you can get away with anything. Paying for dinner: "Oh dear I've lost my wallet, I must have left it in the Jaaaaaag" Boom, never have to pay for anything ever again. Shoplifting: "Oh sorry I forgot to pay, I was too busy warming up the Jaaaaaaaag" Never go to jail.
