Jaguar design boss Ian Callum has revealed that he wants to bring the Jaguar XK back. The 2+2 coupe would be sold alongside the next-generation F-Type and offer buyers a larger coupe option.

“I want a two-seater [the F-Type] and a 2+2. We’re working on something now. There’s nothing approved, but we instigate in design – that’s what we do,” Ian Callum told Autocar.

The XK was dropped from Jaguar’s lineup in 2014 due to slow sales, but Callum sees an opportunity to bring it back. “The XK being dropped was much to my frustration,” said Callum.

If the new XK does get the green light it would be based on the same platform as the next-generation F-Type, but it would be stretched a bit to allow room for four passengers. It also wouldn’t arrive until after 2021, at least two years after the new F-Type, which is expected in 2019.
