In 2012, he commissioned an XKR-S with a handful of bespoke touches. At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Jag pulled the covers off McBrain's custom XJ6, which wears bits from every generation of XJ.

Speaking to Australian media at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, Jaguar design boss Ian Callum said a four - door F - Type coupe is interesting . Here’s hoping they find a better name than F - Type 4 - Door Coupe.

Here’s hoping they find a better name than F-Type 4-Door Coupe.

Jaguar could be the next automaker to jump on board the four-door coupe bandwagon. The premium British brand already has a few sedans in its lineup so there are certainly some candidates on which to design a sleeker, sexier four-door. CarAdvice, however, reports that Jaguar’s design boss Ian Callum hasn’t mentioned any of those cars. In fact, speaking to Australian media, his candidate for a new four-door coupe is car that doesn’t even have four seats. That’s right – we’re talking about stretching the exquisite F-Type.

Here's Why The Electric Jaguar I-Pace Still Has A Functional Front Grille

  Here's Why The Electric Jaguar I-Pace Still Has A Functional Front Grille Many people have challenged the design team at Jaguar for slapping the corporate face on the innovative new Jaguar I-Pace, claiming it doesn’t need a grille if it’s electric. Jaguar wanted to set the record straight at the New York Auto Show, and it turns out the grille actually serves two vital functions. The 2019 Jaguar I-Pace Will Have An Electric Range Of 240 Miles To Match Its Good LooksIt’s easy to look at cars like the Tesla Model 3 and Nissan Leaf and assume that electric vehicles do not need an air intake like traditional internal combustion vehicles, but that’s not necessarily true.

Jaguar ’s design director says he is intrigued by the idea of a four - door F - Type similar to the recently unveiled new Mercedes-AMG GT 4 - door Coupe. “The notion of four doors is interesting because the idea of a four - door coupe came out originally with Jaguars , and then Mercedes-Benz latched on

A four - door Jaguar F - Type could be somewhere in the line’s future, if Jaguar ’s head of design gets his way. Could you imagine that?” “The notion of four doors is interesting because the idea of a four - door coupe came out originally with Jaguars , and then Mercedes-Benz latched on to the CLS

“The notion of four doors is interesting because the idea of a four-door coupe came out originally with Jaguars, and then Mercedes-Benz latched on to the CLS and created this genre of car, which really rightfully was Jaguar’s,” Callum said. “So that’s our rightful place in some ways — the four-door sports cars.”

Callum doesn’t mention exactly which Jaguar he identifies as having blazed the four-door coupe trail. We’ll assume he’s referring to the XJ, which these days certainly has something of the swept-roof shape that people associate with modern four-door coupe. One might say that older XJ models – especially the Series 1 cars from the late 1960s – have something of a sweeping roof too, though we’d stop well short of actually calling them a coupe. Going back even further, the Mark X sports an undeniable coupe-like arc with its side windows. Still, calling it a four-door coupe seems like a radical interpretation of the text.

In an interview with Australia's CarAdvice, Jaguar 's head of design Ian Callum stated he would love to design a four - door variant of Jaguar 's sports car, but Callum has also expressed interest in building a four -seat GT version of the next-generation F - Type as a successor to the discontinued XK.

Callum is quick to mention in his interview that he has absolutely no comment on whether or not there are plans to pursue a four-door F-Type. Given the hype surrounding the new Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door Coupe, one has to think that Jaguar and a whole host of other automakers are taking a closer look at the genre. After all, if Mercedes can stretch the AMG GT and make it awesome, it shouldn’t be too tough to stretch the F-Type. Right?

2021 Jaguar XK Reportedly Planned As Four-Seater F-Type .
The 2+2 sports car is expected to be based on the next-generation F-Type due in 2019. It’s a known fact that Jaguar wants to expand its sports car portfolio beyond the F-Type lineup. How are they planning to do so? There have been recent talks of a rebooted XK to join the aforementioned F-Type as a more practical alternative with space in the back for two rear passengers. That scenario seems to be increasingly more likely if we were to rely on a new report coming from Autocar.
