    Rumorpile: Bentley Considers A Four-Door Coupe

    Car Magazine is reporting that Bentley is planning a four-door coupe arriving in 2018. The four-door coupe will take on the likes of the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG. Sitting beneath the Continental GT, the four-door coupe will take the place of Bentley's entry-level model.

    The new model will use Porsche's upcoming MSB platform that will make its debut in the next-generation Panamara. Bentley chose the MSB platform since it could work for the next-generation of the Mulsanne, Continental, and the four-door coupe. MSB also offers significant weight savings. For example, the next-generation Continental GT could lose close to 992 pounds.

    The four-door coupe will likely utilize V6 and diesel engines, and have a pricetag around €125,000 to €150,000 ($168,650 to $202,380).

    couple more years and there will be a FWD Bentley "3-series competitor" on the VW MBQ platform with a starting price of $29,995

    Maybe even a VW Up! based city car, ala the Aston Martin Cygnet.. :) The possibilities in the brand expansion arms race are endless...

    Over at Rolls Royce, maybe a Mini-based city car eventually?
