Little is known about the models but Automotive News is reporting that both models will be replaced by before 2018. The cars will likely be influenced by the DB11 but Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer suggested the cars could become more differentiated as he noted "One could argue there is not enough separation between DB9 and Vantage.

The Aston Martin DB11 will be unveiled in a couple of weeks and a new report is indicating it will soon be joined by replacements for the Vantage and Vanquish.

Little is known about the models but Automotive News is reporting that both models will be replaced before 2018.  The cars will likely be influenced by the DB11 but Aston Martin CEO Andy Palmer suggested the models could become more differentiated as he noted "One could argue there is not enough separation between DB9 and Vantage. One could easily cross-shop between the two."

That's not much to go on but the DB11 will be unveiled next month and feature a prominent grille that is flanked by slender LED headlights.  The model will also have a ventilated hood, aerodynamic side skirts, and lightweight alloy wheels that are backed up by a high-performance braking system.  Customers can also expect a modern interior with a digital instrument cluster and an assortment of components sourced from Mercedes.

Specifications remain unconfirmed but the company has already acknowledged the model will be powered by a biturbo 5.2-liter V12 engine.  It is expected to produce approximately 600 horsepower.
