Jaguar is planning to end production of the XK sports car this summer and instead will replace it with a larger luxury GT based on the next generation XJ sedan.

The XE compact sedan is set to be launched in mid 2015, followed by an SUV in early 2016 along with their coupe and wagon versions of the XE in 2016 and an all new XF towards the end of that year.
