A Note from Club Founder Philip Porter


“I have been a passionate E-type enthusiast sinceI saw my first one at the age of 10 and have owned my two E-types since 1977. For the last 20 years I have been writing books about Jaguars and have built up a massive archive.

“In 2004 I was persuaded to start a club just for E-types (or XK-Es as they are known in the USA). Being different and devoted 100% to E-types, the E-type Club has been a great success with enthusiastic members in over 50 countries and a great atmosphere.

“I believe an active worldwide club devoted solely to E-types can add greatly to the enjoyment of E-type ownership.  A good club can be of practical use, foster friendships and act as an exchange of ideas and information on all matters relating to E-types.

"I look forward to welcoming you to the Club!"

“I was so delighted when it [the E-type Club] started because, before, if you were an E-type enthusiast, there wasn’t really a specialist club for you. And now there is.”

The E-type Club has no committees, there are no politics.  It is run by respected Jaguar Historian/Author Philip Porter and his wife Julie with the assistance of a small but very dedicated team of staff.
