    At the end of this year, production of the Volvo C70 will cease. But a successor is in the cards.

    According Drive.com.au, Volvo is planning a replacement for the C70. But don't expect the new model to come out anytime soon.

    "We had a C70 and that definitely had a great exposure on our brand. The Coupe Concept car, we can put that into production and it will have an exposure on the brand. But at the end it's the cream on the cake and at the end you need the cake first before you put the cream on it," said Volvo's senior vice president of product strategy and vehicle line management, Lex Kerssemakers.

    Volvo Cars' CEO Hakan Samuelsson echoed Kerssemakers' statement.

    "Eventually yes ... as soon as possible. But we have quite a journey. We have new four-cylinder engines, we have new top hats on our XC90, our crown jewel which we need to replace and then we need to roll out replacement for S80, V70, S60, V60, XC60, so we have a lot on our plate for a relatively small company."
