Jaguar and Land Rover have strong future product plans in place which means there is good reason to believe Tata will keep its distance.
The reason why Tata is going to leave their hands off Jaguar and Land Rover and why they will succeed. As much as the article tried to be pro-Indian in all its rhetoric, it really highlighted that Tata will not really do much but just watch the brands evolve. Of course they are not going to slice and dice only two luxury brands, something Tata could never produce on its own fromt he ground up.

Remember, the deal with Ford gives Tata access to powertrains, stampings and other vehicle components, in addition to environmental and platform technologies. Ford also will provide engineering support, including research and development, plus information technology, accounting and other services.
Again, Tata is not doing this alone, using their "engineering and management wizardry". Ford is going to help them with pretty much everything.

Something about luxury brands from a poor nation with millions of people who are destitute and starving, disease rampant, overcrowding and pollution...It just doesn't do it for me. Luxury brands are about image, perception as much as they are about the actual vehicle. Tata might have bought the parts, but it cannot erase the image of India in the minds of most people in the world. Let's hope "all that money" Tata is supposedly making is put to good use helping the poor and abused in their country.
