We’ve always loved the XK Jag as it appealed to the part of our souls that wished we were distinguished cigar-smoking scotch sipping gentlemen. While we enjoy the drink and the Cubans, there’s no fooling anyone that we refined individuals. The few times we got wheel time in an XK were the exceptions.
The next XK would continue on the momentum built by the ever-beautiful and exciting F-Type but morph into a 2+2 seater. The current F-Type is actually based on a heavily modified XK platform from back in the day and importantly, this building block is expected to be replaced next year.
So far, it would seem as though this next platform will be flexible enough to accommodate a 2+2 seating configuration. There’s still much to be discussed internally but when Jaguar’s head of design, Ian Callum, wants something, he’ll typically get it. Ian would love a whole family of sports cars, including a new XK.
