We finally get a chance to see what the future holds for the 2012 Jaguar XJ, with photos showing a potentially elegant four-door luxury saloon.

Yet again, new spy shots have come out of the new 2012 Jaguar XJ. This time, we actually get a glimpse of the full body. Although heavily padded, we can see impressions of an elongated hood and potentially elegant rear styling on a four-door coupe.

The new version of the Jaguar XJ will be new parent company Tata Motors' first attempt at a full-size luxury. The XJ moniker itself is over 40 years old.

Body shape of the new XJ is expected to be totally different from the current generation. A likely cause is the poor sales figures of the current model. Previous reports, including one by WCF, cite the 2012 Jaguar XJ as a potential competitor to the Audi A7, Mercedes CLS-class, and Porsche Panamera.

Expected release of the new 2012 Jaguar XJ is Spring 2011.
