Is this an official concept rending from BMW?

I really like how the roofline is much more lower and sleeker than the e92's roofline. It makes the car much more beefier and sportier. If the production roofline looks exactly like this, then I know what I want in the future...

It's not a rendering, but a real concept car.

Fantastic!

only small note: the fender vent is not alligned with the design, either allign it with the body line above it or just remove it.

personally i think they should've kept the vent idea for the M model only

Also a comparison between the 4 series coupe and 6 series coupe. I think the 4 series looks closer to the 6 series

If the production version looks as good as this concept, I don't think we will care what BMW names this upcoming version(from 3 series coupe to 4 series and eventually m4 ).

It looks like a smaller version of the 6 series with steroids. Well done BMW.

Space ship bumpers? Sorry, but it's a little extreme/merc and I really hope not. Other than that and the supercar gills, it's absolutely appealing.

I still like E92 a lot, but after seeing those side by side photos, I can't believe how better F32 looks. But unfornately there is still long wait until F32 with M package will be available..

If the F32 looks this good, I'll be getting an M4 in 2016

Absolutely stunning. I'm also one of those people who loves the idea of the car's naming convention altered for the sportier styled models (Coupe, Convertable, Gran Coupe), and keeping the rest as a 3. I'm a big Audi supporter (used to own an A5, and A7), and I think they have it right with alot of their naming conventions.

This way, alot of people would know right off the bat, you are in a coupe, and not a 4 door when you say "... I own a 4 Series Bimmer."

I hope the cool front intake, and rear exaust area will someway surface in a production model (either factory options, or by a 3rd party company). It looks to awesome not to be on the road.

The VW beetle look better than the e92 LCI. A better comparo would be the 07-09 e92. the f32 is truly a stunner though!

Exterior of the new model is gorgeous!

I will miss the "double hump" navigation dash, though... I always loved that design.

The F32 is a better looking car in every way, IMO. There may be some debate about the interior - but I think the F3x interiors look better in person than in pictures.

Guys, it's a concept and the real thing will NOT look this good. Not even close actually. We already have seen the bland styling of the partially uncovered F32.

Most importantly, the car looks like it will be gaining a lot of weight. I predict 175-200 lbs more than the E92.

So what happens with that plan when they introduce the 4-series Gran CoupŔ (4-door)?

Given what happened with the E90-to-F30 transition, why would you think this?

This thing is BEAUTIFUL...and that a$$ definitely just gave me a hard on...so wide, aggressive, and sexy... makes E92s feel immediately dated... BTW guys, this is 90% of the actual production car.

Agree. The new screen setup doesn't look very good aesthetically.

I don't think they are using the word "concept" in the way you're implying.

Yes, we've seen concept cars years ahead of production that have 23" wheels, interiors that look like they came out of a spaceship, and headlights so tiny they wouldn't light up the garage - then the actual car eventually comes out and it always looks like the concept version mated with a Honda Accord.

In this case, the "concept" is an initial unveiling of a car very close to production. I'm not sure about some of the finer points of the trim - the leather stitching work on the upholstery, for example, and maybe the leather covered dash - but I do expect that we are seeing the actual sheet metal, or very, very close.

And, the F30 lost weight compared to the E90 despite growing. So I don't expect the F32 to be heavier than the E92.
