The Jaguar XK Has Run It's Course


The XKR with that 'outta my way' look.

Some cars are successful, others not. Nevertheless, they all have a shelf life. The Jaguar XK has been successful in the segment it sells in, but it is now coming to the end of it's use by date and other priorities mean the replacement is ready yet. So how many were made? My estimates by year are:


19967,125

199714,925

199813,225

199911,425

200012,250

200110,750

20026,850

20035,650

20044,400

20054,025

200613,800

200711,225

20086,950

20094,525

20105,575

20115,100

20123,975

20133,225

Total145,000


That list totals 145,000 cars made, quite a success for the segment it operates in. It would be a shame to keep selling a car that has done its job, but will in future fall behind the competition. The F-Type is selling well and will carry the sports car mantle in the meantime. From that you can deduce that this isn't the end of the line for a Jaguar super sports car. An upmarket version is the plan ahead, perhaps around 2017.

For the outgoing car, two special editions are now available, a Signature model and a Dynamic R one, depending how much you want in your last XK.
The XK rides off into the sunset.
