Forget the X-Type; Jaguar to Focus on XXX

We're filing this under both "News That Will Shock No One" and "Snore News That No One Cares About." According to David Blackhall, who is Australia Jaguar's managing director, there is a good chance that there will not be a replacement for the X-type. Instead, Jaguar is (perhaps) going play it like Porsche and concentrate on low-volume/high-margin vehicles. Ford's other British marquee may in fact craft a successor to the littlest big cat, or they may "do nothing." Seeing as how the duller-than-dirt X-Type should have been stillborn, we can't say we are surprised in the slightest. In fact, the only reason we're running this post is because of the following statement from Mr. Blackhall concerning the upcoming XF, "It has to be a success, a home run. This is Jaguar's money-shot for the next five years." That's a hell of a cargasm, dude. Also, Jalopnik hearts Australia so much it hurts.
