Jaguar XF Estate: Yes, Please or Uh-Oh, Not Again?

It figures these renderings of the new British wagon would come from Auto Motor Sport in Sweden, a country fully in love with big wagons. OK, so the last Jaguar wagon, er, estate wasn’t exactly the height of success. Our own RF ripped the British brand a new one for building the X-Type Estate. But perhaps a larger version might do well—especially if the rumor mill is correct and those crazy Indians/Brits have jammed Jag’s in-house 510 hp supercharged V8 under the hood. We should see the Jag estate [Ed. I christen thee “Jagon”] as a completed car at Geneva by that most blessed of automotive dates: 2010. In the mean time, wagon lovers can savor whatever dreams wagon lovers dream.

What made the X-Type wagon a crock was that it was an X-Type and hideous to begin with. Well, that and the fact that it was a not a Jaguar, but a Mondeo, didn't help. The XF could work in Europe as an Estate, but I don't see it working in the U.S. ever. BMW and Mercedes wagons haven't really been big players here, so there's no reason to think that Jaguar could do any better.
[...] 510hp supercharged V8? Yes, please. [...]
Please don't. Here are (my version) the Jaguar perfect line up: XF (5 seat sedan, 4 seat convertible, 4 seat coupe); XJ (limo) XK/XKR (roadster 2 seat)
What??? No Jaguar SUV or minivan??? VBG!
