More than three years after the Estoque sedan concept was unveiled at the 2008 Paris Motor Show, the clamoring for a production version of the supercar has yet to die down. That’s why in a recent conversation with Autoweek, Lamborghini CEO Stefan Winkelmann refuses to shut the door on the possibility of a production version of the Estoque, saying that the car "was placed on hold because of a number of reasons, including the lack of a suitable platform."

"We haven’t given up on the idea of a sedan entirely," Winkelmann said. "But we see more potential in a sport-utility vehicle encapsulating typical Lamborghini attributes."

The Lambo CEO, of course, is referring to the recently revealed Urus SUV, which made its world debut at the 2012 Beijing Auto Show.

While we don’t necessarily disagree with what Winkelmann has to say, we do see a future where the a production version of the Estoque, or something close to it, will be built by Lamborghini. After all, with Ferrari’s new FF supercar already out and about, a Lamborghini counterpart would make for quite a rivalry.
