It's been over a decade since Rolls-Royce last offered a Corniche, which was the company's name for its unibody coupe and convertible models since the early 1970s. But from the looks of what our photographers recently snapped in Munich, that drought may soon be over.

What they've spied is the 2014 Rolls-Royce Corniche coupe, a forthcoming model based on the Rolls-Royce Ghost. Never mind the fake door handles and rear doors on the test mules, the production Corniche will have just two suicide doors like its big brother the Phantom coupe.

Powertrain will probably be carried over from the Ghost sedan, meaning a 6.6-liter V12. We suspect that BMW will roll out its new Roller at the Frankfurt Motor Show in 2013. Until then, our spies will keep their eyes open for more prototypes, including the oft-rumored convertible.

      It's the front of a Charger and the tail of a Mustang.

        Right. Looks like a shortwheelbase Charger from the side. Can't wait to see the finished product.

      ...eh, maybe more like a two door Dodge Charger... I'm indecisive.

        Since when did Rolls buyers care about aerodynamics? They've always been as aerodynamic as a brick. Rolls customers are normally more concerned with having a car that's more luxurious than their house.

      Glad to see Rolls Royce is finally building a knock off of the Ford Mustang.

      I don't like what's going on in the back. I hope it's just extra panelling to camouflage the lines.

      I'll be surprised if they use the Corniche name on this Ghost coupe. That has always been reserved for a top-line coupe. This shape seems to suggest it will be more of a Bentley Continental competitor. Looks interesting even though I'd like to see Rolls be a style leader and not a follower. The "slammed" roof is becoming a tiresome cliché at this point.
