Arrow BMW F32 4 Series Coupe Camouflage Peeled Digitally (Updated With Rear Renders)

BIMMERPOST NEWS
BMW F32 4 Series Coupe Camouflage Peeled Digitally to Envision Production Form
178
COMMENTS

The first F32 4 Series / 3 Series coupe prototypes have been out testing publicly since October (spy photo/video compilation). And although it remains in heavy camouflage, we've attempted to envision what the production form may look like underneath.

In producing the following images, we started from real life F32 spy photos (attached below) and combined it with some elements from the F30's styling, along with some educated guesses and imagination sprinkled throughout. We'll be able to better assess the accuracy of the image's detailed styling elements as the F32 prototypes lose some camouflage, but for now these will have to do. *Now updated with rear renders.

The result is a production F32 with very sleek and wide width-to-height proportions, seemingly more so than the current E92 3 series coupe which it will be replacing come 2013. It takes on the look of a baby 6-series coupe in some ways, but should maintain the driving characteristics that 3 series have come to be renowned for.

We expect the F32 to receive the same engines as the F30 3 series sedan -- i.e. the 4-cylinder turbo engine in the 28i and the 6-cylinder turbo 35i. As the F32 is supposed to take on a more upmarket image than the F30, perhaps BMW will offer a higher output for the 35i. Just speculation for now however.

Another uncertainty at this point is the model designation. We've reported before about rumors hinting at BMW considering a rebadge for the F32 Coupe and F33 Convertible as 4 series models. There's no final word on this yet, but the chances of BMW actually going with the 4 series moniker are fairly high. We expect the F32 to hit dealer showroom floors sometime in the second half of 2013.

I'll be first in line at my dealer to order it. I have no clue, however, why it's going to take until mid-2013 for it to be released, though.

BTW, how much do you want to bet it'll have incandescent bulb brake lights and turn signals, but, in 2017, BMW will upgrade it to LEDs with the LCI, just like they did with the E46 and E92.

I agree, too big and bulky. Seems as though it is following the rather large lines of the A5... I dont like.

So what? The 6 series coupe is gorgeous. If it's a mini 6 series and has 3 series handling, what the hell's not to like

The rear end of the new 6 is sorta disappointing. If the 4 series looks anything like it, I'm not a fan.

So true. I saw a new 6er with the M Sport package and those same 20" wheels at a dealership a few weeks ago. Good GOD I wish I had $100K to drop on one.

Don't like the new 3 coupe, too much Honda Accord from the side. However this 6 series is just gorgeous!!

You mean massive body roll, a steering system that is not connected to the front wheels, and the engine note played through the speaker system?!?!?!?!

Holy huge butt. I guess we cannot complain until we see the new 2er though! Might be more to the "traditional" 3 series fan's liking.

need to see it in person to pass further judgment but if I wanted something that bulky looking I'd get a 6 series.
