A forum member over at FerrariChat (ironically enough) has detailed what he imagines the next 10 years will hold for the raging bull. He predicts, in intricate detail, a plan for Lamborghini to build the Estoque sedan in 2014 andthe Sesto Elemento concept in 2012, which has fueled speculation as to how accurate this really is.
The story has caught the imagination of news sites around the world, but there has not yet been an official source from Lamborghini brass; the closest has come from hints dropped by Lamborghini CEO Stephan Winkelmann that he would like to see the Estoque enter production. The forum post illustrates that not only will the Estoque be built, but a convertible concept will be shown in four years. The post also mentions that the Sesto will be built in limited numbers, even though Lamborghini has already planned its production. The recently-introduced Aventador will see SV and upgraded versions as keeping with top-Lamborghini tradition, and there’s even a name for the potential replacement for the Gallardo: Cabrera, “after one of the foundational bloodlines of Spanish fighting bulls.”
With such meticulous info like this, it’s easy to believe this speculation as fact—and to be fair, Lamborghini built their last concept as the ultra-limited, ultra-rare Reventón. But the eagerness to promote this as connected with the company itself leaves behind many questions to Lamborghini’s business plan and models of secrecy: given the length of time it took for the Aventador to be revealed, they don’t seem particularly eager to detail their plans for the next 20 years. Even if they build only two models.
