Some rumours are naming the XE as the E-type successor and it’s thought to be aimed in line with Porsche Boxster / Cayman range.
The Jaguar XE will be a sporty two-seater designed to fit between the Jaguar XK and the XF models.
The new chassis will be constructed using a lightweight alloy which may eventually be the replacement for the XF, XK and XJ models.
The XE’s performance will obviously vary with the engine options. The Jaguar XE 0-60 is yet to be confirmed although the top reforming model should be within 4 – 5 second mark; very quick.
One would have thought it may match or better the Jaguar XKR performance.
