I would guess that bringing the business partners along for a round of golf wouldn't be possible with the minimal trunk space. Forget Costco runs...

Not exactly the FIRST time Lamborghini played with the idea of a 4 door car. They may be more prone to finally build one now, since 4 door sports cars ar not all that odd to see in this day and age.

Back in the 80's they had a concept car called the Portofino, designed by a chief designer for CHRYSLER(of all folks)!!!! For us aged folks, there was a brief period when Chrysler had an ownership Stake in Lamborghini, back in the late 80's. There was only 1 concept car ever built, and it currently sits in Chrysler's headquarters on display in Dearborn, Michigan, after they had it restored due to an accident in transit. It's design later spurred the immensly popular Dodge intrepid, and a few others, with it's cab forward thinking. By todays standards, this was as far from Lamborghini-esc as you could get; but this is a now 25 year old car. It's concept design was controversial for Lambo, and they decided to ditch the project.

The Lamborghini Portofino was a concept car developed for Lamborghini by Kevin Verduyn, one of Chrysler's chief designers. Introduced at the 1987 Frankfurt Auto Show, it was a fully functional, four-door, four-seat sport sedan.

In 1986, Kevin Verduyn designed a concept car model for Chrysler called the Navajo. The concept never went beyond the clay model stage, but when Chrysler acquired Automobili Lamborghini S.p.A. in 1987, the design was resurrected and with some fairly minor tweaks, turned into the Portofino.

The Portofino was built by Coggiola of Turin, Italy on a lengthened Jalpa chassis, giving the car a mid-engine rear-wheel drive layout. It also made use of the Jalpa's 3.5 L V8 engine and 5 speed transmission. The most interesting feature of the Portofino were the front scissor doors, like the Countach, though the back were suicide-style rear-hinged-doors. The logo on the hood featured the Lamborghini bull inside the Chrysler pentastar.

Only the single prototype Portofino, chassis #LC0001, was ever produced. In 1991, it was heavily damaged in an accident in transit. However, Chrysler had it restored by Metalcrafters in Costa Mesa, CA for $300,000, and it is now on display at Chrysler headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan.[1]

The Portofino was notable for being an early example of cab forward styling, and many aspects of its design made it into the Chrysler LH platform which initially included the Chrysler Concorde, Dodge Intrepid and Eagle Vision.

I like the way it looks but it would have to sit higher than that to accommodate 4 people. It would bottom out on steep driveways and need suspension stroke to comfortable carry 4 people. Just think of the Rapide
