2012 Jaguar XFR – Click above for high-res image gallery

If you're a fan of the latest design direction at Jaguar and of station wagons, we had some potential good news for you last week. That's when reports indicated that the British automaker was proceeding with plans to make a long-roofed version of its XF sedan. Now it seems the news is only getting better.

In follow-up reports, Jaguar's design director Ian Callum suggests that the wagon – excuse us, "Sport Break" – will include an XFR version (yes, we're hoping Jaguar spells it "Sport Brake," too). That means the same 510-horsepower turbo eight as the XFR sedan and XKR coupe and convertible. And that's some very good news indeed, particularly for those looking to trounce the odd Porsche 911 off the line with the whole family on board.

      The bigger news in this article is the introduction of Jaguar's new turbocharged V8. /sarcasm #corrections

      I don't really see the point of a wagon version of the Jag XF. Anyone who can afford a Jaguar in the first place and needs to haul a lot of crap around, can probably also buy/already own a really nice pick-up or SUV, which are much better at hauling stuff than wagons.

        Because that way you don't need to buy a whole new car just to haul a sofa around. Some people can afford nice things like Jags because they're not stupid with money, and buying two cars when one would do is being stupid with money.

          I should have added that this car doesn't make much fiscal sense to offer in the US, except maybe as a special order. In other countries where the local government tries to discourage auto ownership (through high sales/VAT taxes, high registration taxes, high fuel taxes, ect) offering a luxury station wagon can be profitable. But the average American household owns more than 2 cars - more own 3 cars than own 2, for that matter. So it makes more sense to specialize the vehicles one's family owns. A jack-of-all trades master-of-none vehicle like the station wagon loses out in this sort of situation. If the Dad in a family is looking at trading in his BMW 5-series for a new Jaguar XF, he doesn't need to consider the wagon if the Mom has an Escalade or Audi Q7 or whatnot that can haul big stuff as needed.

      I personally would love a decent sporty wagon on offer. Trouble is, according to autoblogs previous article, even the standard non-gonzo XF wagon is NOT bound for the US. I assume this one wouldn't be either. Boo.

      OFrd screwed up big time with Jaguar. This XF is a hot looking car and the Lincoln MKZ should be this. The Lincoln MKS should have been as good as the Jaguar XJ. I love the look and the value the XJ offers.

        The XF was the last car to be built under the Ford ownership.

        I was kinda thinking the 2011 MKZ should have been the 2011 S60, though the MKS came out just about identical to the S80, so maybe Lincoln was just imitating Volvo instead. Whenever I get into a newer Lincoln Town Car I can't help but how it could have been what the XJ is. Then I realize, owning a Jag sounds way cooler than owning a Lincoln (I've owned 2), so Ford should have just let Lincoln die and kept Jaguar and Volvo.
