Interior looks awesome.

I'm sad to see they maintained the hideousness of the F30 exterior with the F32 though. I hope there are still some good E92's available in 4-5 years; BMW just made sure I won't be buying anything 'new' from them until possibly the next generation of 3/4ers.

damn, this looks futuristic! It doesn't have the impact the previous generation 3 series coupe had but this is quite a departure from the lovely curves of old. Can't wait to see the M4/M3. I hope they loose the busy bumper/diffuser.

Looks awesome...can't wait to see some in-the-flesh photos.

Not sure why everyone is complaining about the size. To my eyes, it looks no larger (read: longer) than my E92.

It's going to cost a lot...I expect with paint and basic options you will be at 50k base in no time....and this is with the smaller engine.

I think this car is absolutely gorgeous...I would be happy to have it, but I am afraid the "vibe" of the 3 coupe car has shifted from the sporty/young man's car to the sort of luxury, ultra-premium 2 door car.

Price will tell whether I move from my E92 to the F32 vs an F30! Either way, I applaud BMW for a gorgeous design and am curious to see how it looks in final production form.

I dont think youre far off but I would say 3500-4000 but closer to 4k.

Did I read that correctly? Closed off kidney grille? What's the point of having it there, decoration? WTF?!

So if I'm reading this right, it's almost exactly as long as the F30 sedan? Interesting.

Looks cool.

But that open rear bumper is just wrong.

That's why BMW will offer the 2-series coupe. They've said for years they want to move the 3er coupe to a more premium car. That's why even the E92 refresh got more premium options over the sedan i.e. LED halos and full LED rear lights.

Fabulous looking car though! Fantastic job altogether!
What you saw in the production pics are the GT models...

nice marketing. they slapped the number 4 and now they can sell this car for extra ~$7000-$10,000 than what they used to sell their 3 coupe.

For reference, the measurements and differences between the F32 and E92 are in the article. It's 1.6 inches longer.

The car is 90% production ready as per all BMW production "preview" concepts. The intakes are more stylised for the concept but will retain the same impression in a more realistic form.

EfficientDynamics is a requirement in any new BMW model, the latest engines and brake technology rely on extensive cooling. Hence why the BMW 3er GT also features a function vent.

LEDs will be offered as an option afterall does the Audi A5 have LED's?
I am told it drives as well as it looks.

The upcoming M4 will allow BMW to create a new iconic performance model.

We have now entered the new era of the BMW 4er.

Thanks, Jason! Sometimes I get too caught up in the pictures to actually read.

Still, +1.6" in length does not mean I'd be calling this thing "huge" or a "barge" of any sort.

That info won't come until later. At the very least it will have the same engine offerings as the F30. But, it's also been rumored to possibly be introduced with the successor turbo inline 6 engine to the current N55 engine.
