I think things are getting too complicated:

- 2 series
- 4 series coupe kills 3 series/M3 coupe brand
- 3GT/4GC/5GT, possibly 1GT too if I recall correctly?
- X1, X3, X4, X5, X6, what next?
- new sub-"M" models - M550i X-drive etc.

Buying a BMW is no longer simple. "M" stands for marketing now IMO as so many of these models overlap eachother and create "needs".

That rendering takes liberties with the proportions of the spy photograph. The rendering is beautiful, however I doubt that the real car will look as good.

Probably not before 2015 in the States. The F80 M3, F82 M4, and F83 M4 convertible are ahead of it in line.

It should if the 6GC is any indication. That's one of the defining characteristics of the cars that fall into this market segment.

It will look better than the allready great looking 3er
It will have more options and will be more exclusive than the "normal" sedan!
Maybe will be close in price with the 5er, but the styling will be more arresting

Sweet Jeevis! That's nice. Very nice. I would definitely be in the market for a baby 6GC with x-drive.

Agree. Plus it's the size of a 5er. And probably what the 5er should have looked like from the beginning. smh.

Here you can see exactly what is hiding behind the camouflaged rear panels that cover the aperture of the rear door. And in true classic BMW four door sense the hofmeister kink is part of the door.

Taking its cue from the BMW 6er Gran Coupe. The 4er Gran Coupe aims to bring dynamic styling , Sports-proficient handling, performance and high standard of luxury and individuality to the entry segment.

The 6er and the 4er Gran Coupe models could possibly be joined by a 2er Gran Coupe currently undergoing marketing assessment and evaluation.

Extending the look of the forthcoming 2er Coupe, again with a more sleeker rounded roofline and short ovehangs at the front and rear.

Scott26,

Compared to the 3 series sedan, you've probably posted this answer before and I miss it. Question, are you stating that the 4 series GC will have shorter overhangs in the front and rear compared to the 3 series sedan? Also from the sketches you've shown it seems like the headlights will be sharper compared to the 3 series sedan and also the integration of the headlight to the kidney seem to be different too.

235i GC would be perfect for my needs (i.e. the g'kids in the back seat without having to climb through my door, the profile of a coupe, smaller overall size)

I like BMW's path.

Don't. I like the looks of this "coupe," but it will come with a price premium and a space deficiency vs the sedan.

Personally, I need the money and the space.

Plus, my car looks damn good!
