History has a way of repeating itself, especially in the auto industry. When Jaguar was owned by Ford, the British brand attempted to field a competitor for the BMW 3 Series, called the X-Type. Based on the bones of a Ford Mondeo, it aped the styling of Jaguar's flagship model, the XJ, while borrowing liberally from the Ford parts bin. That was 2001.

We expect the Jaguar X-Type to be making an appearance in an episode of AMC's Walking Dead, since the sedan that died two years ago simply will not, well, die. Or rather, its successor won't die. Autocar has a detailed report on the work being done to engineer a new entry-level Jaguar, and it is hypothesized that we'll see it in 2015.
