Porsche’s list of special-edition 911 models is never ending. Hoping to place the Continental GT in the same niche as the Porsche 911, Bentley is planning to offer more special-edition versions of the new model, which goes on sale in 2011.

Bentley sold 23,000 units of the outgoing Continental GT in 7 years and is hoping the new strategy will help it hit similar numbers in a more crowded market with a lot of competition.
