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.

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.
