I can't wait for the official unveiling. With all that camo on I can't stop from comparing it to a Mustang.
Looks promising in motion!

Personally, I'd just remove the badges and call it a day.

A lot of people say the new 3 is basically a baby-5... if you look at the video, around 1:20-1:21 minutes, it's almost as if this 4 series is going to be a baby-6... hmmm

i'm going to be upset if it really is called that.

i'll switch to porsche at that point.


maybe that's a little harsh.. but i will be angry
I hate 4 too, especially in China, the pronunciation of 4 is equivalent to "death..."!

but i don't think that's a big deal....beacause i will make a 335i badge in the trunk instead of 435i.....
agreed. you will never see a 4 series in China, so I also doubt the US. Think about it 3,5,6,7,8 series...Never a 4 series in history.

By that logic, you wouldn't see an S4 or A4 being sold in China, but they certainly are.

So I doubt BMW board is making this decision based on whether the #4 means something bad in Chinese.

Same crappy interior as the F30... not sure how much I'm looking forward to it.

Why cars are so bad today is becasue all those stupid whiners. That the next M3 loses it NA engine does make anything for you, but because it will be called M4 you are going to leave BMW ? Just for a name ? Weird ! Because of such whiners as you Porsche can't shoehorn any worthy engine in the Cayman, becasue than the 911 won't be the fastest car any more and you want "911" badge just as "M3" badge. A ture car enthusiast doesn't care how a car is named, he cares how it drives. You think M3 badge is going save ///Motorsport from ///Marketing ? Never. It is already too late.

Due to the flexibility of the modular matrix that underpins the whole 3er family, the car will inherit a longer wheelbase and an individually elongated roof panel to stretch the car over the regular Coupe.

The Coupe itself is again seen as a formidable answer for those that want the sportiness and sleekness of the 6er but cannot stretch to the asking price that goes with it. As with all BMW's the core aspects of what makes a BMW will not be forgotten , expect a more sporting character than the already award winning F30. BMW know the customer base for the F32 and they know what drivers expect in terms of overall communication.

Interestingly enough the 4er Gran Coupe will possibly be the direct challenger for the Mercedes-Benz CLA or the recent Concept Style Coupe.
Although it is classed as the smaller A-Klasse. The car (if the concept is anying to go by) is actually bigger and longer than the C-Klasse.

The significant aspect of a 4er Gran Coupe allows the profitability of the whole F30 family to increase with the flexibility of adding individual concepts.
If you take the 6er for example the Gran Coupe also increases BMW's profitability in the high end of the premium market.

The E92 is still the benchmark for this segment and the F32 will be its prime successor. Individual style , character and involving driver communication.
The new 4er Coupe will arrive in early 2013.
You say the 4 Series GranCoupé will get a longer wheelbase than the 4 Series Coupé because it will have four doors. But if the 3 Series Sedan can have four doors while having the same base as the 4 Series Coupé, why can't the 4 Series keep the same wheelbase ?
