I just wonder how lon git would take for such a vehicle to come out. They are already building a larger crossover, so I would imagine that we wouldn't ee this smaller on euntil the larger one has come out. Where does that put us? 2019?

Good move on their part, Jaguar wants volume models and going for these growing CUV and SUV segments with real buyer volume should make tapping into them set the stage for Jag.

Once they get some of these volume models going too, then they can invest that profit in some dream cars for people. It would be soooooo cool to see a Jaguar super car.

We already know what it would look like:

The article is very speculative

The Autocar article is highly speculative. Jaguar were saying that they wouldn't rule it out. One remark of note is that they said that they'd need a different platform to be competitive. i.e. the advanced aluminium architecture platform is too expensive to go lower than the XE. Given that they spent zillions developing the AAA, which has not earned them any cash yet except for deposits on XE's, I don't think that they'll be developing a whole new platform soon.

The sedan market is drying up here in the U.S. CUV's and small SUV's are what is selling with any one I know IMO

Well the new AAA will be in the F-Pace, XE, new XF and IIRD the XJ as well. So it will amortize fairly quickly. As for the X1 rival, they don't need a new platform they just borrow the LR-MS platform under the Evoque/Disco Sport and count their cash...

That seems to be the case with a lot of vehicles, 10-20 of them on the same platform and it makes sense, no need to go back to the drawing board for a new vehicle that shares a lot with what's out and what was out.

which leads me to believe we'll see the XE's platform used for some future Jag, just not sure what.

I don't think that companies make platforms unless they can be used for multiple vehicles. It just makes too much sense from a business standpoint. Not sure what the XE's platform would be used for next though. Jag seems to be concentrating on SUVs right now.

that's what i have observed and it makes sense, no need go to all unique on each vehicle, any way to cut overhead costs is a win.
