The German magazine Der Spiegel is reporting via its Spiegel Online website that the Bugatti Veyron will be discontinued in 2014 at which time the Volkswagen Group's most luxurious brand will shift to production of a 4-door sedan likely based on the Galibier (above and below). Interestingly, Spiegel is suggesting that the car will be based on the Audi A8 and that suggests a large aluminum ASF take on Audi's modular longitudinal platform (MLB).

Why's this a surprise? We published a story back on December 13 relaying a report from Automotive News Europe that suggested Porsche had been awarded developmental control of the Volkswagen Group's Modular Standard Matrix (MSM) that would underpin the Porsche Panamera and future Bentleys.

Will buyers care? They didn't seem to care in regards to the Bentley/A8/Phaeton Continental. I don't think they will, though Bugatti should be bespoke to me.

Does VAG really need Bentley Continental, Mulsanne, Porsche Panamera, Lamborghini Estoque, and a Bugatti sedan? I guess they won't stop until every Arab Sheik has a full suite of these VAG super sedans.
People keep buying them.............why not build them?
