Bentley Planning To Expand Lineup
At the moment, Bentley’s lineup of cars consists of four models, including the Mulsanne, Azure T, Brooklands and the Continental. The latter is available in four different versions, as follows: GT, GTC, Flying Spur and the Supersports. The automaker’s bosses are working on expanding this lineup and the new models will be underpinned by the soon-to-be-sister brand Porsche’s architecture.
The first future model will most likely be a 4-door coupe variant of the Continental GT that will have to face up some serious competition coming from the exquisite Aston Martin Rapide and the Mercedes CLS. At the same time, it will also take on other models by the VW Group, including the Porsche Panamera and the sexy Audi A7.
Rumors say that Bentley is also working on a crossover which will be based on the Porsche Cayenne. Those same sources say that the automaker will use the Cross Continental badge for that model.
Another possible model will be a smaller coupe that will be placed below the aforementioned Continental GT and will be aimed to grab customers from the Mercedes SL 63 AMG and the Maserati GranTurismo.
These new models should see the light of day sometime in 2015.
