  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Current Rolls-Royce Phantom Is Wafting into the Sunset—Coupe and Convertible Won’t Be Replaced

Recommended Posts

2015 Rolls-Royce Phantom Drophead coupe Nighthawk Edition


In the ultra-luxury sphere, lifespans are longer than they are among the serf class. And so it is that the current Rolls-Royce Phantom is 13 years old, an eternity in car-years. But even a Rolls can’t roll on forever, and the company has announced that this-generation Phantom (the seventh, according to its maker) will be wafting into the sunset later this year. The sedan—excuse us, limousine—will be replaced by a new Phantom VIII, but the the Coupe and Drophead Coupe (convertible) are never to return.

In order to give them a proper send-off, Rolls is doing a run of 50 “Zenith” special editions. Details of the Zenith models are few; Rolls-Royce mentions a Tailgate Hosting Area, unique gauges, and laser-etched armrests. Additionally, the released sketch indicates an engraved Spirit of Ecstasy hood ornament, a two-tone interior treatment, a metal-and-leather hard tonneau for the convertible, “crystal paint,” and what appear to be disc-style wheels.




The Phantom was the first new Rolls-Royce developed under BMW ownership, and it made its debut on January 1, 2003. The extended-wheelbase model followed for 2005, while the Drophead arrived in 2007, and the hardtop Coupe for 2008. An updated Series II Phantom launched in 2012.

Rolls must feel that the Wraith coupe and newly introduced Dawn convertible, both based on the smaller Ghost sedan, can cover the market for ultra-luxe two-doors. The company also is working on an SUV, because, well, everyone must. Rolls has not indicated when the next Phantom will arrive, but we’d expect a debut sometime early next year.
