Is Bentley Considering a Shooting Brake Model?

Carrozzeria Touring Bentley Continental Flying Star

Car and Driver had a chance to sit down with VW board member Stuart McCullough. In regards to future Bentley models, he said, "We have an idea in the back of our minds that we may yet bring to market."
Of course, this immediately led to whisperings and theories of a possible Continental Shooting Brake like Carozzeria Touring Superleggera's Flying Star that was revealed at this year's edition of the Geneva Motor Show.
While this would be cool, the magazine hits the nail on the head: how would they justify another model on an older platform versus derivatives of the new Mulsanne?
If, however, it were actually offered, it could be as an extremely-limited-number send-off for the Continental range before some new models show up. Ferrari's decided to do its own coachbuilding, so why not Bentley? Tell us what you think in the comments section below.
