Lightbulb BMW F32 4 Series Coupe Render Highly Reflective

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
The German auto publication Auto motor und sport has published a render of the upcoming 4er Coupe which is highly reflective (percentage) wise of the actual appearance of the car.

The bloodline remains , but the details change...
The 4er becomes more sharper in every design aspect as it embodies a very personal sporting character.

The car is very much indicative of a more smaller compact 6er and a perfect evolution for the current E92 Coupe.

I have included a spyshot to continue the ongoing debate which many overlook in their interpretations that it is not a 2dr 3er and that the Coupe will have a more dynamic roofline and a sportier appearance. The sharper look is reflective of why the car now becomes the BMW 4er.

More F32 spy photos and videos @ http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=600605

I think that it will be close to the design of the 6 just as the sedan is close to the design of the 5.

Thanks Scott.

Great image, the new 4 coupe looks good. I particularly like the way the headlight meets the grille. It is more flowing than on the 3 series, which in comparison looks a little clumsy.

I have always thought the E92/E93 looked a bit too soft around most edges. It could definitely benefit from a bit of sharpening up a la the new 6er. I think BMW will have a real winner with the F32!

There is something a bit Mustang like about the shape of this car. I really don't like it. They should have done a more aggressive front end like the Z4.

I'll take a six banger in Titanium Silver, please. I've been waiting for this model a very, very long time.

Blur your vision and look at the first picture, looks like a Genesis Coupe...

I hope they change the lower bumper a bit in the final production model.

it'd be cool if the coupe got it's own headlights. the way the e92 doesnt have e90 headlights.

Looks awesome -- Aggressive enough to be the coupe while still incorporating the new design of the F30 sedan's styling..... But for the love of God, keep the 3 series moniker.

There's no way BMW can rationalize changing the M3 coupe to the M4

Why are the lights in the spy photo fully rounded off with camo? Even the F30 335i doesnt have fully rounded lights. Same goes for this render..

I guess the prototype isnt using the finalized light design cues..

S.O.P (standard operating procedure) for prototypes, they almost never have the final production tail lights fitted.

It's just camo. There's heavy camo panels covering the entire front fascia and rear, including all the lights. The spy pics at this stage are good for evaluating general size, shape, stance, but not for details like lighting.

I'm worried!

What if next year the new 3/4 series coupe comes out and looks exactly like the picture above. What do I do to my F30 M Sport then???

This new coupe is going to be a serious game winner. I love the above pic!!!

You're making a car buying decision on a 95% covered car that's a year away from being debuted LOL.

Enjoy the luxo MB!

Nice

If it is close to that render then this is the car I have been waiting for.
A sensible sporting size that will look better than the 6 series.
