Rumorpile: XK Coupe To Transition Into The XJ Coupe

Mar 30 2014 09:35 AM | Jaguar News
During this summer, Jaguar will quietly say good-bye to the XK Coupe and Convertible. The company says poor sales and the introduction of the F-Type has made the company decide the XK needs to hit the road. That doesn't mean Jaguar isn't working on a replacement though.
Auto Express reports that Jaguar is working on a new 2+2 grand tourer to take on the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe and Bentley Continental GT. The new coupe, wearing the XJ nameplate, will feature certain design cues from the F-Type such as flowing lines, muscular rear wheel arches, and wraparound taillights.

Under heavy camouflage, we can make out the new XS having similar proportions to the XF midsize sedan. Both appear to have a similar front clip with the oval shaped grille and elongated headlights. Around back, the XS looks to have a shorter decklid.
Powertrains are expected to be 2.0L Turbocharged four and 3.0L Supercharged six for the U.S. All-wheel drive is expected, along with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The XS is expected to be shown as a concept later this year at the Paris Motor Show, with the prod...

Let's dive into the crossover first. This is the Jaguar C-X17 concept and its a glimpse into what a Jaguar crossover could look like. The styling of the C-X17 borrows a lot from Jaguar's current lineup. The front end has a large grill and narrow headlights that are from the XJ. The back end has muscular haunches and taillights borrowed from the F-Type. A set of twenty-three inch wheels finish the exterior.
The inside is very muc...
