Will Bentley Man Up And Build The EXP 10 Speed 6 Or A Baby SUV?

Two enter but only one can see production.

Bentley is already adding an SUV to its lineup, the oddly named Bentayga, but now new reports are out that another model is in the pipes. Just what type of car that will be remains a mystery, although a new report from Autocar is shedding some light on the story. Apparently the race is between the EXP 10 Speed 6 concept shown off at this year’s Geneva motor show and a sub-Bentayga SUV (think the Porsche Macan).

Kevin Rose, Bentley’s sales and marketing head, is undertaking the task of building a business case for each. Autocar says Rose’s decision isn’t expected until 2017 at the latest. Just know that Bentley boss Wolfgang Durheimer can only choose one. "We can’t do both those cars at the same time, because Bentley is still a small company and our resources are very stretched.” Durheimer went on to say that Bentley’s customers want the EXP 10 Speed 6 to be built. Despite their pleas, a smaller SUV would make more financial sense. That being said the world has a shortage of two-seat luxury sports cars. Make it happen, Bentley!
