Manual only until auto added in 1988. 1983 saw the 3.6-litre XJ-SC cabriolet, with a V12 version in 1985. Both were discontinued in 1987 in favour of the 1988 convertible with frameless windows and a one piece hood. 1991 saw relaunch of the XJS (minus hyphen). Changes included revised rear side windows, tail lights and 4.0-litre straight six engine option.
