Production model put on hold over platform issues

Lamborghini CEO Stefan Winkelmann has revealed the company is still considering a production version of the Estoque concept.

Speaking with Autoweek, the executive said the Estoque "was placed on hold because of a number of reasons, including the lack of a suitable platform." He added "We haven't given up on the idea of a sedan entirely, but we see more potential in a sport-utility vehicle encapsulating typical Lamborghini attributes."

"Lack of a suitable platform"?! So let me get this straight, out of all of the other different car companies under the Volkswagen Group (VW, Bentley, Porsche, Bugatti, Audi) and not ONE platform from all of those brands works?!

Great car, I think they just have to build it, period. Better than the Urus. It is only a bit silly cars like the Estoque, Panamera (which is hideous) and the Rapide are four-seaters. They could have been made five-seaters so easily. Just take away that gargantuan (but stylish) center console, or at least let it be an optional feature.

well said - they ended up doing just that on the A5 sportback and the BMW X6 which had massive centre consoles. now they have a centre seat option. great success!

Hope they will do it. I don't like the Panamera & the back of the Rapide...

Let me give you guys a bit of a tip from what an analyst told me end of last year: the models that will be made in the future are the ones that will appeal the most in the PRC, Russia and the Middle East: i.e. ostentatious, big...and ideally with lots of ground clearance for marginal roads. Western tastes in cars will now have less of an effect in the past. And if you're going to blame anyone, blame Porsche. Every CFO of every luxury car company in the world has noted what the Cayenne has done for Porsche's P&L...

Or as the rest of us analysts call them MEBRIC's. Thankfully China will emerge as the driving force in the market and they are not as keen on SUV's as the ME and Russian markets are.

i hav a 335ci and a '12 gl. hate the little car, i can drive faster with the massive wheels of the gl and i dont have to worry about hitting curbs or speed bumps. there's no substitute for the height, mass, and loading capacity of a luxury ute'. my neighbor stuffed some boxes in his 745il and had the trunk open. it looked silly.

I won't challenge you on practicality but there's a lot less fun in tall, massive autos than in low and compact muscles. I can't stand driving an SUV in the city.

very true. I had a VW hatch before I switched to an Alfa GT. Huge difference in small things like body roll. I even drive my dads Q7 from time to time, other than its power, i hate driving it. Driving is so much better in a lower down car :p

I'd take the Estoque any day over the Urus. A Lambo SUV worked the 1st time coz it stood out when there were only a few but now we have an SUV overload. Super sedans on the other hand...

Hahaha the LM002 was far from "worked the 1st time" it was a poor attempt to capture military contracts. An abject failure both in form, performance, and impact.
