  • Barn Find Hunter neighboring Jaguars

    What happens when a barn find hunter and classic Jaguar enthusiast happen upon two different XK-series roadsters less than a quarter mile apart? Tom Cotter, the host of Hagerty's "Barn Find Hunter," says he always dreams of opening a barn door and finding an old Jaguar XK120 or XK140. He's about to strike gold twice, and they're virtually on opposite sides of the same street. The first find is an XK120 roadster. Purportedly once owned by Daniel Gerber (like the baby food), it was acquired by Cotter's host, Denny Hoxie, from somebody who had let it go to seed a bit. Hoxie's XK120 is very much...

    Jaguar product boss hints at second sports car

    Plans for a second Jaguar sports car appear to have picked up steam internally. Jaguar product boss Hanno Kirner has hinted the brand has plans for a potential family of sports cars. He told Autocar in a Monday report that the F-Type has been a major success and that Jaguar loves sports cars. "I...

    Jaguar design boss proposes new XK

    Sports cars are great for making a statement but they don’t often make good business sense. That’s why you’re seeing strange partnerships like the one between BMW and Toyota for the joint development of a new generation of their respective Supra and Z4 sports cars. Going it alone...

    Jaguar cancels plans for XK successor

    When Jaguar announced in early 2014 that it was ending production of the XK, there was hope we’d see a redesigned model at some point or perhaps even a large, luxurious coupe to challenge Mercedes-Benz’s S-Class Coupe. It seems that with all the growth in demand for SUVs, plus the...

    Coachbuilt David Brown Speedback confirmed for US

    Last year’s deliciously retro Speedback GT from British automotive startup David Brown will be offered for local sale following a debut at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this August. The coachbuilt special, which clearly has been inspired by the Aston Martin DB5, will be...

    Popular Jaguar Models Recalled Because Of Detaching Toe Links

    Jaguar has issued a recall on three of its models--the XF, XJ and XK--because of a toe link that could end up separating from the rear sub-frame. Toe links are used to control the alignment of the wheels, in this case the rear pair, and without them the driver may experience a loss of vehicle...

  • 2015 Jaguar XK Final Fifty edition

    Last month we heard that Jaguar’s XK would be dropped from the market as early as this summer, due to arrival of the sportier F-Type on the scene. At the 2014 New York Auto Show last week, Jaguar confirmed the news and revealed a special edition model to help send the XK off into the sunset. That special edition is the 2015 Jaguar XK Final Fifty, produced exclusively for the U.S. market. As its name suggests, only 50 examples will be offered, just like the final 50-car run of the E-Type back in 1974. All 50 examples of the new XK Final Fifty will be based on the 510-horsepower XKR...

    Jaguar XK Replacement To Ride On Stretched F-Type Platform: Report

    Jaguar’s XK is expected to be discontinued this year, as the aging grand tourer continues to lose sales to its younger and more dynamic F-Type sibling (only 4,000 XKs are said to have been sold last year). A successor is planned, although the new car is likely to evolve into a larger, more...

    Chris Harris Drives The 2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT: Video

    One of the meanest looking cars currently in production is Jaguar’s 2014 XKR-S GT. Built by the automaker’s special projects division, ETO, the XKR-S GT is essentially a race car that has been made street legal. Unfortunately, there’s no additional power on this model, which means...

  • 2013 Jaguar XKR Coupe

    Jaguar has issued two separate recalls that affect almost 3,000 of its customers around the country. The more serious issue affects the XF sedan. According to a recall alert, owners of 2013 Jaguar XF 2.0L GTDi models manufactured from July 2012 through May 2013 could see their vehicles stall. Jaguar says the hose clamp for the Charge Air Cooler (CAC) hose on these models may be out of position and become loose, allowing the hose to detach. Should the hose detach, the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash. A stalled engine usually means steering and brake assistance may be lost...

    Jaguar Considering Expanding XKR-S GT Production: Report

    Unveiled just a couple of weeks ago at the 2013 New York Auto Show, the Jaguar XKR-S GT is the brand's ultimate interpretation of track-tuned, street-legal XK awesomeness. And it looks like it may be more in demand than Jaguar expected. Originally, the company had planned to build just 30 examples...

    2014 Jaguar XKR-S GT: Track-Tuned For The Street

    Jaguar's ETO division, a little-known but intense group of specialty vehicle creators launched last year, has one-upped the XKR-S with this, the XKR-S GT. Track-tuned, but built for the street, this is likely the hottest version of the XK Coupe we'll see--at least in this generation. The ETO, or...

    If you were to head down to your local Jaguar dealer today, cash in hand, the sportiest offering on the lot would be one of Jaguar’s XK series cars, in coupe or convertible variants. Even in its most potent XKR-S form, fitted with a supercharged 5.0-liter V-8 rated at 550 horsepower, the XK...

  • Track-focused 2013 Jaguar XKR-S spy shots

    To most, the 550-horsepower Jaguar XKR-S is about as hardcore as you’d ever want a Jaguar to be. However, for buyers that like to take their cars to the track, race them, and then drive them home again, even the XKR-S may not be focused enough. This has led management at Jaguar to develop a new track-focused version, which would compete against the likes of the BMW M3 GTS, Mercedes C63 AMG Coupe Black Series and the Porsche 911 GT3 RS. Essentially race cars converted for road-use, these track-focused models are stripped of any amenities that may make life more comfortable. They are then...

    2012 Jaguar XKR-S: First Drive

    "Grace... Space... Pace". Three words that Jaguar used to describe its luxury sedans and coupes back in the 1960s, and three words by which Jaguars have been held to account ever since. That slogan raises questions when a car like the 2012 Jaguar XKR-S springs from the company's gates. Will it be a...
