In March 2011, German magazine Auto Motor Und Sport reported on a rumor that BMW plans to introduce a new 4 Series line-up. Beside the coupe and convertible variants, the magazine said at the time that a four-dour coupe type of vehicle will be introduced as well.
The new 4 Series will also allow BMW to price the vehicle slightly higher, at a premium price. The 4 Series Gran Coupe is said to compete with the A5 Sportback and it will feature a coupe-like roof line.
Last year, we reported several times on BMW’s plans to launch a 3 Series Gran Turismo variant and according to our sources, the vehicles is still on schedule to launch in 2013. It is unclear at the moment if the two rumored vehicle are in fact one and only.
