Bentley currently has four models in its lineup including the Mulsanne, Brooklands, Azure T and the Continental lineup (which consists of four different versions including the Continental GT, Continental GTC, Continental Flying Spur and the Continental Supersports). The company’s bosses are now trying to beef up the lineup with some new additions. The new models will be underpinned by soon-to-be sister brand Porsche’s architecture.

First in line will be a four-door coupe version of the Continental GT that would compete with the likes of the Aston Martin Rapide, Mercedes-Benz CLS. It will also take on other models by the Volkswagen Group including the Audi A7 as well as the Porsche Panamera.

Bentley is also considering a crossover based on the Porsche Cayenne. Insider info suggests that Bentley may use the Cross Continental badge for the model.

Last in mind is a coupe that will fit below the Continental GT. It will be aimed at the Maserati GranTurismo and the Mercedes-Benz SL63 AMG.

When can you expect these new models to arrive? Sometime in 2015.
