Question Production Numbers?

ll this info re: model, year, style is very interesting. People tell me these are relatively "rare" cars - anyone got any data or links to annual production numbers? DaleD

This is from a post on another forum by 'Doug'. It appears to be total production without any consideration as to US vs ROW.

From the book Jaguar XK8 and XKR by John Blunsden:
Coupe
1996 2925
1997 5141 10XKR
1998 3319 1402XKR
1999 1701 1530XKR
Conv
1996 4187
1997 9765 13XKR
1998 7662 838XKR
1999 6196 1994XKR
Numbers for 2000 were partial since that is when book was written. For your information this book also has the sales figures by market area also.

Thanks guys - the numbers seem to confirm and reconcile. I always "heard" that about 1/2 came to the US and 1/2 were ROW - any confirmations? DaleD

WOW - We really do seem to have rare, individual, almost hand-made cars! Given the rest of the auto world, if you also divide these numbers by color. each of our "loves" is almost unique - remember that when it comes time to sell! DaleD

My greatest fear is that between the plastic engine parts and electronics these cars are going to be much harder to keep drivable when they reach the age of collectible status.

That is where you find an enterprising individual who can get their hands on some of those plastic parts and fabricate them out of something more durable.

Hmmm... I hadn't thought about the electronics. I'm sure there will come a point when a replacement ECU is simply no longer available. What happens then?

ECU's are always repairable. Just have to find someone who does it. My 88 Rolls Royce has ECU's and there are a few electronics repair companies that repair them.

The supply chain for Jaguar must be part of/organized by Ford, the real question is since the sale to TATA, how long will Ford support the supply chain.

Ford is still supplying a lot of parts for Jag/LR. Ford supplies the engines on a contract thru 2019.

Anybody know how many they tabbed as 2006 models? I suspect they show up in the 2005 numbers on these lists since they were actually built in 2005. Mine shows a build date of March, '05.

Thanks,

I think all of the XK's built in '05 were sold as '06's. In '06, they started selling the '07 new XK's.

I wonder if there is also a source for how many were sold of a particular exterior/interior color.

My understanding is that the build number, date, market & model is in the VIN number
of the car ?


Just had a green shower for Xmas, new lines on order
