The Jaguar XF has gotten off to a strong sales start, and with a tempting new diesel engine option in Europe and a new "R" performance model, the sport sedan is being asked to carry a lot of water for the British brand. And if new rumors prove to be true, the XF will soon be able to tote a lot more of the wet stuff thanks to a new wagon variant.

According to Auto Motor und Sport, Jaguar will unveil a thinly-disguised XF Estate concept car at September's Frankfurt Motor Show, with a 2011 production model following about six months later. AMuS also suggests that there will be an XFR estate model to take on BMW's M5 Touring and Audi's RS6, and like its sedan counterpart, it is expected to be V8-powered with some 510 supercharged horsepower. Naturally, more measured V8 and V6 models will also make the scene, along with a pair of V6 diesel models.

Other XF variants, including a possible coupe and convertible are reportedly on the table. Us? We're looking forward to clapping our eyes on the load-lugging cat, and hope that the XF's rumored quality problems don't dog what is sure to be a stylish family transporter.

      This could be interesting, but judging from the X-Type, I'm not sure how many people would buy a Jaguar wagon. That said, I definitely want to see one.

      They need a slightly smaller XF to compete with the 3 series and C Class.

      I am actually very interested in the Jaguar XF sedan. I don't know if I'd like the idea of a wagon. It's very European and British. Anyway, I have been looking around, and I found a sedan that I like in West Chester PA (http://www.landrover4x4.com/new-inventory/vehicle-details.htm?vehicleId=7a6245d34046381e017f1fcbf366ba1e), which is about an hour from me. Does this look like a good deal? Also, can you get the Jaguar XF with Manual Transmission in the US?

        That's a shame, Justin. Not many cars in this class come with a manual, which I prefer, but I still want to check this car out. I thought it might come in a manual in England because manual transmissions are more popular there.

        Al: Also, can you get the Jaguar XF with Manual Transmission in the US?

        No, the Jaguar XF is not made with a manual transmission (anywhere in the world).

      This COULD be one of the best looking, if not THE, wagons ever to go on sale. Hope they don't make the Magnum mistake of sloping the roof to the point where it doesn't have all too much capability.
