1995 Jaguar Xjs Base Convertible 2-door 4.0l on 2040-cars
Waterloo, Nebraska, United States
Long-term owner of a 1995 Jaguar XJS 2+2 convertible. Purchased 12/15/99, with 59,420 original miles. Currently has 91,410 miles. My Dad was the purchaser from Texas Cars Direct; our understanding/memory is that company acquired car coming off lease. Always garaged, all maintenance performed (oil changes, etc), and all repairs were completed by local Jaguar service technician or in certain cases by Jaguar dealer. Never smoked in while owned by my Dad, and do not believe that any prior owner(s) smoked in the vehicle. Runs and drives great! FANTASTIC looking car! Note that driver's side rear corner of convertible top is showing wear, as is the driver's seat from getting in/out of the vehicle. Rear seats and leather are otherwise great. Paint looks to be very good after being detailed.
Clear title. No other warranties or representations - Buyer takes vehicle as is/where is.
Ebay payment only, or cash. Alternatively, Buyer may wire funds to Seller's bank (West Gate Bank in Lincoln, Nebraska) whereupon Seller will deposit title to be held by bank in escrow. Buyer must pick up within ten (10) calendar days from auction close in Omaha, Nebraska.
Will do our best to answer any questions you may have, but please note that as my Dad has passed away, information availability is very limited.

If you want to know what was going through the minds of decisionmakers at Jaguar when the company decided to build the batty C-X75 Concept, look no further than the quick video after the jump. Jaguar set about building a car with the performance of a Bugatti Veyron, the electric range of a Chevrolet Volt and the emissions of a Toyota Prius, and they turned to a legendary engineering firm to help make it happen. Williams, the same crew behind Williams F1, helped Jaguar stitch the concept car together, and the result is unlike anything we've seen before.

The twin-charged 1.6-liter four-cylinder mounted amidship is paired with an electric motor at each wheel for a combined output of over 850 horsepower. And, since the whole chassis is hewn from carbon fiber, a production version would've been light enough to give machines like the McLaren P1 and Ferrari LaFerrari a run for their money. Shame they apparently couldn't make the business case work. Watch the concept build story in the video below for yourself.
It's hard to think back now, but the same man overseeing the design of the 2013 Ford Fusion also presided over a rather lackluster period in Ford design, highlighted by vehicles like the Five Hundred and Freestyle. With the redesigned Fusion receiving high praise, J Mays tells Automotive News that he feels vindicated from criticisms suggesting he's not a daring enough designer.

When Mays took over as lead of design in 1997, he admits to having quite an ego ("My head would barely fit through the door some days. I've long since gotten over myself") and the workload to match. With the Blue Oval's portfolio full of premium brands like Aston Martin, Jaguar, Land Rover and Volvo at that point, along with the bread-and-butter Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, Mays certainly had quite the challenge.
It was in the mid-2000s that Mays took over just the premium brands, and took on the new title of Chief Creative Officer. At the time, Mays endured some criticism for looking backwards to retro styling, rather than setting a new standard for American car design - criticism that Mays says he is free from with the all-new Fusion.
Since buying Jaguar Land Rover, Indian automaker Tata has generally left its luxury arm's platforms and technology alone. However, those days might be gone. The two of them are gradually growing closer with coordinated development and rumors of shared platforms. And it looks like all of that work and money is finally going to pay off with an actual vehicle in the near future.
According to Australian website Drive, Tata wants to make its cars more attractive to buyers outside of India, and to do that the company knows it must improve quality. The Indian company is being careful, though, because it doesn't want to dilute the Jaguar or Land Rover brands with cheap models. "You're going to see in the future a lot of sharing of technologies and platforms over time, but you won't see a JLR with a Tata badge on it," said Darren Bowler, managing director of Tata's Australian distributor, to Drive.
According to Bowler, these future vehicles are already on the way. Tata and JLR have a global platform in the works for 2017 that both companies could use for cars or crossovers. He also hinted that Jaguar's new Ingenium engines could be shared among the brands in the future, too.
