Jaguar has confirmed that production on its sporty XK model lineup will cease sometime this summer. The striking XK Coupe and Convertible models have sold over 54,000 units during an eight-year run, but the XK's already modest volume numbers have softened of late following, particularly since the arrival of the new and more affordable F-Type Roadster, which will be joined by an F-Type Coupe this spring. With additional higher-performance F-Type variants on the horizon, Jag says the F-Type is destined to serve as the core model in its future sports car business.

Despite what promises to be a decidedly abbreviated model year, we've been assured by the automaker that there will be a 2015 Jaguar XK. No final word as to whether any of those 2015 XK's might be offered in some sort of special edition designation. While Jaguar's immediate focus will be on the successful launch of its upcoming XE compact sedan that was previewed in Geneva, rumors persist that an XK replacement may still be in the cards at some point. If so, it would be substantially more upscale than the current car and intended to take on rivals like the Aston Martin DB9 and Bentley Continental GT/GTC.
