Bentley is Working on a New Five-Door Coupe, Crossover and a Smaller GT

Bentley is hard at work on the development of three new models, which will borrow technology from Porsche.

The first model will be a five-door coupe version of the Contintental GT. It was originally thought that the five-door would be based on the same platform as the Audi A7 and upcoming A9, but instead it is going to be based on the next-generation Panamera. Power will come from a revised W12 engine with around 600-hp, a new turbocharged 4.0L V8 and a diesel.

Next is a crossover that will be based on the Porsche Cayenne. The Bentley crossover would be based on the Porsche, but would have the same engines as the five-door coupe.

The last model is a new coupe that would fit in below the Contintental GT in the Bentley range. It would mainly compete with the Maserati GranTurismo and Mercedes SL63 AMG.

We’re going to have to wait a bit to see any of these models, which won’t arrive until the next Panamera in 2015.
