Jaguar XK Rendering Shows Potential Of New-Generation Jaguar Coupe

Please find a way to get this done Jaguar

  • Jaguar XK launched in 1996 and remained until 2014

  • Rumors of a new XK coming in 2021 surfaced a few years ago

  • Jaguar XKR rendering by Future Cars Now


Ian Callum’s Jaguar XK was stunning, it was comfortable, it was fast, and if you opted for the XKR or XK-RS, it was perfectly loud. In our minds, it’s a future classic and should still serve as a benchmark for any automaker looking to build the best GT possible.

The second-generation Jaguar XK lasted until 2014 before being discontinued. The Jaguar F-Type came after, although it’s not a direct replacement as it is smaller and can only sit two. The lack of a direct successor to the XK means the name and car could eventually come back. Rumors have surfaced in the past, but nothing official.

Still, if Jaguar needs inspiration, they can check out Future Cars Now‘s instagram that recently published a Jaguar XK rendering.

The classic Jaguar XK look with the long hood and short rear overhang remains. Many elements such as the headlights and rear follow the F-Type’s design. The overall design certainly works and is realistic enough to actually make it to production.

All that would remain would be to decide what engine goes under the hood. The current supercharged V8 with 575 horsepower only? An entry-level supercharged V6 with 380 horsepower?

Many Jaguar could go in a different direction. Take the V6, pair it with an electric motor, pump power to around 600 hp, and make the next XK the flagship vehicle for future Jaguar electrified vehicles. Fingers crossed.
