History of the 1996 Jaguar XJS Cabriolet

Ford updated the XJS in 1992 (eliminating the hyphen). The new Jaguar looked the same, but was simpler, with fewer stampings and better rust proofing. Hard-to service inboard rear brakes were moved outboard in 1993.

A 4.0-liter six-cylinder engine arrived in 1994, with a top speed of 141 mph, but 1995 was the last year for the six cylinder XJS, and its optional five-speed. The V-12 coupe was discontinued, but the convertible V-12 was available through 1996 on special order.

The XJ-S and later XJS models were status symbols and as long as the cars were well-maintained, they could be reliable.
