2012 Jaguar C-XE Exterior Spyshots

The Jaguar C-X16 Concept may be catching the eyes of many at the Frankfurt Motor Show, but over in the European Alps, Jaguar engineers are working the kinks out of the production version of this concept: the Jaguar XE. The XE will be debuting sometime next year and will be offered in both coupe and roadster versions, with the roadster debuting ahead of the coupe. After both of those models come out, a GT3 version for the coupe will also show its face. Maybe we’ll get lucky and get R and R-S versions as well.

Either way, the new Jaguar XE will be built on the same platform as the current XK sports car and will be powered by a 3.0 liter V6 made entirely of aluminum and delivering some 380 HP. Jaguar has promised that the XE will be a true two-seater sportscar with plans to hunt down models like the Porsche 911.

Lofty goals aside, the new Jaguar XE will fit in nicely with the Porsche clan by offering a price tag that falls somewhere between the Boxster, the Cayman, and the 911.

It is really a great concept of the car. I like the style of the hood and I also like the style of the bumper. The rim of this car is great and its unique.

Very Impressive car. I like the color of this car its simple but the performance of this car is not simple. The style of this car is like a Mercedes benz brand because the hood is long than the other car.
