British firm to focus on F-Type, new XE sedan

According to Aussie auto site CarAdvice, Jaguar will stop producing the XK before the end of the year. The big two-door GT car is being canned in order to make room for the F-Type and forthcoming XE small sedan.

While the XK will eventually be replaced – more than likely by a large luxury coupe – it won’t be arriving within the next 24 months as Jaguar’s focuses on the new XE sedan and a future production SUV.

The Jaguar XK is the only model in the British brand’s lineup to be released before its takeover by Tata Motors. The current generation XK debuted at the Frankfurt Auto Show in 2005 and arrived on dealer lots the following year as a 2007 model.
