Lamborghini SUV, Lamborghini Estoque: Platform sharing with Porsche

Lamborghini SUV

The upcoming Lamborghini SUV and Lamborghini Estoque will share the platform with their Porsche counterparts.

The raging bull would tap into Porsche’s existing expertise in this field, in a move that could see platforms for the next-generation Cayenne and Panamera underpin the new Lamborghini SUV, as well as a production version of the four-door Estoque concept, unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show.

We first revealed the link between the firms in Issue 1,140, and it will help Lamborghini return to the high-powered SUV market. Its last offering was the V12-powered LM002 from the early Eighties.

The move would also give the brand a competitive edge over arch-rival Ferrari, as our source explained. “Ferrari can’t follow into this market, because it has no links to SUVs at all,” he said.
