In order to save money, the Volkswagen Auto Group has decided to start building Bentleys on Porsche platforms. Obviously, the Cayman/Boxster platform is being left out of this equation. It's the Panamera platform that will be shared. All future Bentleys, with the expection of the hideous SUV the company is currently working on, will be based upon the Porsche sedan. In addition, it's likely that all future models will sport a V12 engine.
The next Continental GT is going to be seriously awesome.
