Could be unveiled in November at L.A. Auto Show

The 2014 BMW 4-Series GranCoupe has returned in an additional batch of spy photos, this time showing additional details as BMW has decided to remove some of the camo.

The 4-Series lineup was inaugurated by BMW in June when they introduced the 4-Series Coupe, and a second member will be added to the family next week when the 4-Series Convertible will be unveiled at IAA in Frankfurt. After that, expect to see this 4-Series GranCoupe to be shown before the end of the year, possibly in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Seen here is a prototype showing more skin and demonstrating the car will essentially be a four-door version of the coupe featuring a slightly elongated wheelbase providing more legroom at the back. Engine lineup is likely to be taken from the two-door coupe, including a 240 bhp (179 kW) 4-cylinder 2.0-liter turbo and a 300 bhp (224 kW) inline-six 3.0-liter turbo.

Sales are expected to commence at the beginning of next year.

I think the all European cars manufactures are developing their cars according to the request of Chinese cars market. Therefore, also for the 4 series Gran Coupe, it's BMW's answer for the Chinese Dragons.

with clever manufacturing and parts exchanging, multiple models flipping parts around allows many variations to a concept to the customers advantage without costing too much for the manufacturer. personally, i love these low roof 4 doors but would still opt for a 2 door

This will cost the same or more then the 5 Series, I'm guessing more. I would just go with the 5.

BMW's pretty genious idea: Let's take out the door frames, call it something else and charge $30,000 more.

What is wrong with BMW these days...a 4 Series Gran Coupe...Are they out of their Minds...and How could a 4 Door Coupe be associated with the 4 Series which is a 2 Door Coupe... it is basically just a 3 Series without Door Frames. BMW may think they are filling their Product Gap with this product, but what they are actually doing is just cannibalizing on the sales volume of their own 3 Series, 3GT, 4 Series, M3 and M4. An unnecessarily diverse Product Range = Cannibalized Sales Pattern...which means Lower Volume in Sales for their main Bread Winner... I don't think that is a very smart move.

So after seeing that i'm a little bit confused. BMW "need" a rival for the A5 Sportback, ok but there is already the 3 series GT... so why do they need a 4 series Grancoupe ??

What if I want a four door sedan that isn't quite as sleek as this but sleeker than the 3 series sedan? BMW you have failed me.

In the future they will assign a new number for Gran Coupes like 4.5 Series and 6.5 series etc. along with a huge price bump. Prepare for M4.5 someday

3 series sedan, 3 series GT, 4 series gran coupe.... i can understand the 3 series sedan with either of the two but why do we need all three that follow the same formula of a 4 door sedan?
