Tata Motors has reported a big jump in profits thanks to strong sales at its Jaguar Land Rover business. Net profits at India's biggest carmaker tripled to 53.98bn rupees (882m dollars) in the three months to the end of June, far more than analysts had expected. Revenue grew by almost 40%.

    jaguar, rover and land rover were crap when they were british.
    at least they are more or less profitable with the indians.
    more or less the same with rolls royce and bentley.
    they were the typical british cars with outdated technology, outdated design and no reliability.

    if you want a car, buy a german one, or an italian, spanish, french, argentinian, whatever except british.

    And just where does this genius think the the technology exists that designs, builds and exports these cars?



    People buy them because of what they are, British luxury cars.

    Ask your friends the Chinese.

    But, the Indians DONT have the technology to make Jags and LRs. And, guess who taught BMW and VW to make cars after WWII.

    You idiots know diddly squat. Who built your railways, and who failed to maintain and update them?

    RGland is a joke, you need deflections, but… we know whats what.

    “But, the Indians DONT have the technology to make Jags and LRs. And, guess who taught BMW and VW to make cars after WWII.”

    the indians have more technology than little britain in every aspect of the industry, by far.
    and the germans were using the automobile while you were using horse carts.
    read the history of karl benz, you nabo.

    after ww2, they had the bmw 501, 502, the mercedes benz 300 sl, etc.
    none of those jewels has anything in common with the typical british crap.

    Yeah, that typical British crap that every successful person in the world joins a waiting list to buy.

    Which leaves out 99.999999999% of you envious knobheads.

    Like I said, ask your friends the Chinese!

    miss ilsen
    i was talking about the country where the car is made.
    so you have the ford focus for instance, vw amarok, chevrolet cruze, vw passat, etc. which are built in several countries.
    well, you don´t have to pick the ones made in england.
    their standards are soooo poor.
    got it now, you nabo.

    It took a company from a former colony to come to the rescue of a British piece of junk.

    That would be the British piece of junk that's making a profit for Tata would it?

    Did you even read the article?

    Check out the last paragraph.

    WTF am I saying, you did!

    What TATA did was to let the British management MANAGE the business unlike Ford who were always interfering.

    It was as simple as that.

    Land Rover Solihull were a big client of one of my businesses so I have first hand knowledge of what went on.

    Pony Paul still won't thank the British taxpayer for the £millions still being sent in Aid, via the EU, to Argentina.

    *sniffs disparagingly*
    So ungrateful, one does what one can, yet the lack of appreciation just breaks my heart. You do everything you can for these people yet they still run amok.
    oh my! Will they ever learn?

    i already told you, we will say “thank you” for those 1 or 2 million dollars when you say “thank you” for the 30 billion dollars we sent to little britain during ww2.

    and do not forget to say “thank you” for the 4000 argentine soldiers, pilots and nurses who saved your asses.

    and do not forget to start paying that bill.

    Please do send the bill.

    If you can prove it to be legally outstanding, I will happily write you a cheque myself, you cheeky young scamp!

    May I politely suggest that you have received, how do we say,
    not the very best of historical education?
    I do hope your family may one day better its situation.
    Personally, I would recommend emigration.

    I hope its not wasted on you, that being my erudition...

    your personal cheque?
    to pay with bad checks is a crime.

    “bad checks”
    I will leave both sartorial and financial crime to Cristina, she practices both on a daily basis.
