BMW 4-Series Coupe Concept video presentation

Farewell 3-Series Coupe

BMW has released a video of the 4-Series Coupe Concept reveal presentation held for the media.

Set to replace the current 3-Series Coupe, the new 4-Series Coupe will most likely spawn GranCoupe and Cabrio versions in the years to come following the recipe used for the 6-Series. Needless to say, an M4 is certainly in the pipeline. Regarding nomenclature, the German brand will use odd numbers for sedans and even numbers for coupes for all future models.

Measuring 4641 mm long, 1862 mm wide and 1362 mm high, the new model is longer, wider and lower than the current 3-Series Coupe. In addition, wheelbase has grown by 50mm to 2810mm, while both front and rear tracks are bigger.

Although this is a concept, it looks pretty much production-ready which means that it should retain most of its design elements when the production version arrives. BMW will probably release further info about the car next month when it will be showcased at NAIAS in Detroit.

BMW made a huge mistake by creating a new Segment for the 3 Series Coupe and calling it a 4 Series and M4...this is a huge Mistake considering the Legacy of the 3'er and the M3. And that's not all, China has the biggest market in the world and the one thing that the Chinese are scared off more than Financial Collapse is the number '4' which is pronounced as 'Sei' which also sounds like the word 'Death' in Chinese. If you don't believe me, just try going up an apartment or any skyscraper owned by a Chinese Company...there would be no Fourth (4th) Floor, it would be replaced by 3A or something... yes they fear number 4 more than anything else. What does that tell us...the sales of the 4 Series and M4 in China would be really bad...I hope BMW gets this messages before it's too late...please don't kill the BMW 3 Series Coupe Name and please please retain M3 name for 3'er Coupe Sports.

Really hoping that the production version keeps those side air vents! Though I think that the production version will probably swap that rear diffuser for a more conventional looking one. Time will tell.

The M4 will be a very special car, return of the I6 engine also makes this car a car with a soul, and thats what lacks from competition, they're soulless.

I think I just found my next car. The problem with German automakers, is that they like to roll out different variants over a period of time (as oppose to have all or most variants at launch). If you want the higher power version with AWD, you probably have to wait a year or so. Lonegr for the M version.

That's not a problem. That's a strategy. When you launch a new model, you already have a desirable product so you begin by selling the variants that are harder to sell. When the car starts to loose its curb appeal you roll out the variants that make more sense, more powerful or more convenient... Thats how you sell a model for 6 years straight.

The next generation Audi will have to be at the very top of its game as this car looks set to be the best 3 series ever. Not only will the Audi have to look good but it will have to drive well, ride well etc. I really wish they offered the lower end Audi A5's in rear wheel drive like all BMW 3 series. Your move Audi!

The reason I'll probably buy the A5 instead of the four series is that the Audi is AWD. RWD is great in the summer but useless in the winter and since I need to be able to use my car all year round and cover the length and breadth of the country, I prefer AWD. Maybe BMW should offer the four series with AWD?

The current 3 series coupe has AWD versions, with both petrol and diesel engines, i don't see why the 4 series won't have AWD as well. http://i.auto-bild.de/ir_img/3/3/0/0/3/BMW-330xd-Coup-729x486-1791552e9f7dc5d2.jpg

In the UK, where Im based, they only offer the 2.0 petrol with x drive and even thats a new addition. Previously it was RWD only.
