Bentley considered a new sports car, but chose a crossover instead

The Bentley EXP 9 F concept was one of the biggest disappointments at the Geneva Motor Show, but apparently the bad news doesn't stop with the car's styling.

Motor Trend is reporting the crossover was chosen over a sports car and two other undisclosed models. Little is known about the sports car, but it was production-feasible and smaller than the Continental GT.

According to Bentley CEO Wolfgang Durheimer, "In the end, the SUV was a better idea. It sits above all its competition. The sports car would have had the Porsche 911 Turbo as opposition."
