Lamborghini is now again considering the production of the Lamborghini Estoque to duplicate the success of the Aston Martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera.
Lamborghini’s stunning Estoque four-door coupe concept may yet be built, despite earlier statements putting that idea in doubt. CEO Stephan Winkelmann said this week that “a four-door car would be a very feasible approach” to a third model for the brand.
The Estoque was initially thought to be headed almost directly to production upon its concept debut at the 2008 Paris auto show. But shortly afterward Lamborghini released a “clarification” that the car was not approved for production, and that there were no plans to build it.
Now it looks like the Estoque may get a second lease on life, thanks in part to the improved economic climate among luxury buyers and in part to Lamborghini’s desire to produce a higher-volume vehicle. Winkelmann cautioned that any new model in the Lamborghini range would have to yield a “real leap” in sales, and added that there are, as yet, still no plans to build the Estoque.
