Volkswagen May Cancel Nonessential Cars Like the Golf R400, Bentley EXP 10



In light of the much talked about Dieselgate scandal, Volkswagen may be in the midst of postponing or completely dropping a few nonessential vehicles altogether. With new CEO Matthias Muller at the helm, Volkswagen could see a dramatic shift in product.
According to Bloomberg, any Volkswagen cars that are “not absolutely necessary will be cancelled or postponed.” Vehicles like the Phaeton, Tiguan GTE, Beetle Dune, and Golf R400, just to name a few.

Even Seat and Skoda could be feeling the heat as well. Rumor has it that the two brands could postpone a number of hybrid and electric vehicles in order to strictly build cars that will make a profit. At least, that’s according to the same report.
But arguably one of the most highly-anticipated cars in recent history, the Bentley EXP 10 Speed 6 sportscar, may never see the light of day either. With millions of dollars likely having to be invested in research and development for the vehicle, the sports car project may be postponed in the name of making money.
