Tom is an enthusiast who has been buying and selling the XK8/R model for many years and knows the prices they fetch in all conditions and specifications.
Code named X100, they were produced from the end of XJS production in 1996 and phased out before the introduction of the XK (code named X150) in 2006.
Tom send me periodic updates on these cars, and I am currently catching up on relaying this information via the newsletter, and hope to make it a regular feature.

October 2017 Update
Thank you for the great Jaguar newsletters you work so hard to produce.
I have attached a comprehensive (for me at least) list of the activity of the 2004 Portfolios. I have been doing this for years. These cars are VERY popular and the prices are VERY attractive at the current time. Red is hotter than the Blue. I believe the 2003-2005 XK8’s and XKR’s (X100) represent the “sweet spot” for the 1997 XK8’s onward. They were trouble free and most of the niggling problems were sorted out by then…especially the 4.0L engine problems. The 2006 XK’s and XKR’s (X150) onward are plagued with spotty electrical gremlins that are difficult to fix….sometimes impossible to fix.
I currently own two 2004 Portfolios; and I believe the prices will start to rise. These are future classics. Imagine these cars were $93,995 back in 2004!!! Many were sold with an added premium.
Take care and again thank you.”

July 2017 Update
“I still track XK8/XKRs and I knew you would be interested in the current valuations of the 2004 Portfolios. As we had discussed over the years, I believe the XK8 prices have bottomed out and they should start to rise.
I just purchased a 2004 Jupiter Red Portfolio with 35,000 miles in San Francisco. These cars seem to be garage queens….not good for these “Cats” as they need to be exercised!!!” (pictured above)
Here’s a useful tool for valuing any car, in this instance the 2004 Jaguar XKR
Late 2016 Update
In response to an enquiry regarding the value of a 40,000 mile XKR Silverstone Coupe.
“Over the years I have owned three Silverstones…..including one coupe. I have not traded for one in recent years. I just recently purchased a spectacular 2005 XK8 with 50,000 miles and paid $13,000. I find XK8 and XKR’s (from 1997 to 2006) have bottomed out and will only rise in the coming years. The problems (mostly overblown if they are properly maintained) with the 4.0 engines (as in your Silverstone) is well known and most folks avoid them and prefer the 4.2 which has been updated and has a very good reputation.
Price….I suspect a 2001 Silverstone Coupe (pretty rare car) may sell between $10,000 and $15,000. All depends on overall condition, service history, prior paint work and whether the timing chain top tensioners and water pump have been replaced.”

Mid 2016 Update
Late 2015 Update
“I am still following the XK8’s and recently purchased a 2005 XK8 with 54,000 miles for $14,000. Great history, southern car (no rust) and no paint work. The XK8’s and XKR’s remain very VERY popular in the USA.
My experience is the 2003-2005 XK’s are the VERY best (of ALL the XK8’s) for trouble free motoring. No 4.0 litre troublesome engine and no electrical gremlins as in the 2006 X150.
AND…they are as affordable as the XK8’s may EVER be!!!!!
Truly a great bargain.”
