Here is some information on the production span on the Jaguar XJS-C
From July 1981. XJ-S received the new High-Efficiency engine for much better economy; as a by-product. power was increased to 220 kW
(295 hp) or 196 kW (263 hp) in North America. At the same time. the XJ-S received changes to its exterior and interior (new five-spoke alloy wheels. chrome inserts on the upper part of the bumpers. wood inserts on dashboard and door capping's).
In 1982. the new V12 XJ-S won first and second at the RAC Tourist Trophy race at Silverstone.
In 1983. a new 3. 6-litre engine débuted - the Jaguar AJ6 straight-six (I6) engine - as well as a new cabriolet version. the XJ-SC. In the XJ-SC. the coupé's rather small rear seats were eliminated making it only a 2-seat car. The XJ-SC was not a full convertible but had a non-removable centre targa-type structure and fixed cant rails above the doors. The rear quarter windows remained as well. The six-cylinder cars can be identified by a slightly raised "power bulge" — the longitudinal centre section of the bonnet.
Between 1983 and 1987 the six-cylinder-engined cars were only available with a five-speed manual transmission (Getrag 265). with a four-speed automatic (ZF 4HP22) offered from 1987 onwards (along with improved fuel injection as used on the XJ40). The earlier. manual models were not imported by Jaguar into the United States. which had to wait until the facelift manual 4-litre XJS coupé and convertible were available.
A V12 XJ-SC emerged in 1985. Post-1988 pre-facelift full convertible
The two-seat XJ-SC targa-type model. never a great success in the market place. was replaced with a two-seat full convertible in 1988 which proved to be a great hit
