Jaguar could be set to take on the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe with a new two-door XJ model, according to reports out of the UK this week.

The new grand tourer, which would replace the XK due for retirement this year, could even revive the XJS badge that last appeared in 1996.

Introduced in 1975, the XJS arrived as a successor of sorts for the legendary E-Type, and was eventually replaced by the first of the new-generation XK models.

Now, Jaguar is rumoured to be working on a larger and more luxurious coupe in the vein of Merc’s S-Class Coupe and Bentley’s Continental GT - both of which have four-door stablemates.

Britain’s Auto Express reports that the XJ Coupe would also preview the look of the next XJ limo, with a more muscular look and design cues from the F-Type Coupe.

Jaguar has yet to confirm plans for an XJ-badged coupe, although design boss Ian Callum in recent months has touched on the idea of a larger 2+2 grand tourer to replace the XK.

If an XJ or XJS Coupe is in the works, it will be sometime before the new model appears. For now, the brand is focused on its coming XE sedan and the new XQ or Q-Type SUV.
