  • 2018 Jaguar XF Sportbrake

    Jaguar launched a lighter, more dynamic XF for 2016. The svelte sedan doesn’t get as much attention as its German rivals, but it’s one of the best options in the mid-size luxury segment, especially if you’re fond of spirited driving. Now the XF has spawned its wagon body style, which Jaguar likes to call a Sportbrake. And the good news is that the vehicle will be sold in the United States. It's due later this year, as a 2018 model, and is priced to start at $71,445, including destination. The XF Sportbrake is certainly handsome, though a long rear overhang gives the vehicle...

  • 1963 Jaguar Lightweight E-Type raced by Bob Jane - Image via Bonhams

    Jaguar’s Lightweight E-Type has frequented the headlines in recent years due to the British automaker’s decision to make a series of continuation models exactly like the originals. Those continuation models were priced as high as £1 million (approximately $1.26 million) and all six of them were snapped up almost as soon as they were announced. Even at that lofty price the cars were still a bargain compared to an original, which was hammered home during this past week’s collector car auctions in Scottsdale, Arizona. At the Bonhams sale, an original 1963 Jaguar...

  • Jaguar I-Pace concept, 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show

    Just prior to the 2016 Los Angeles auto show, Jaguar unveiled the I-Pace concept, an all-electric crossover SUV that elbows in on Tesla [NSDQ:TSLA] Model X territory.
