Get Shorty: 1986 Jaguar XJ
The series three generation of the legendary Jaguar XJ platform was produced from 1979 through 1992…but it was mostly a cosmetic reboot of the previous car. Internet legend says that the new styling was designed by Pininfarina, but they did not make a coupe version as it was only available as a sedan. Lucky for you, Mr Skill invented the sawzall and now you can have your XJ Coupe. Find 1986 Jaguar XJ offered for $8,200 in Allentown, PA. Tip from ME.

I don’t like this new world we live in where people don’t understand the fundamental problems with:
Photos shot in Instagram portrait or square rather than landscape and:
Posting photos that are screenshots of … photos.
Or doing both at the same time. Add a gnarled thumb pointlessly positioned over the license tag and this could’ve been a trifecta of awful.
Also: what engine is that? How does that not get mentioned? I’ve been triggered, arrrgh!
I’m no Pininfarina, but this is terrible. If I were so foolish to have tried this, with a tail like that it would look better a little bobbed 8-15″ (boat tail design?) or extend the car’s wheel base/roofline so it’s a 2+2 coupe. The way it sits right now, it looks a bit clown car with such a short wheelbase and the long trunk hanging out the back.
Yeah, that door going right up against the rear tire well screams “CLOWN CAR”… That’s a bummer, because it could have looked so much better. (not that I have the skills)….
Moving the rear wheel back about 1/2 a wheel so it doesn’t have the wheel well cutting into door might make the trunk look less awkward.
Or you could just start with an XJS if you want a coupe with ’80s Jaguar styling.
My preferred fix would be to sell this to a sucker and buy a 70’s XJ-C.
It’s really begging for a 350 Chevy with a 6-71 blower sticking out of the hood to complete the look.
Definitely looks like a small block Chevy, so you just need the blower… and more Sawzall.
This one lacks the room necessary to, um… let’s say, “stretch out and get comfortable”.
