3-series Gran Turismo (GT) Renders by Autoexpress

A friend from the UK or indeed any other country sends me scans or clippings of magazines that portray a BMW whether past , present or future.

Today I have been sent some examples of the BMW 4er , or as it will be known as the BMW 3er Gran Turismo. Because in China for example - 4 by itself is considered unlucky. Given that China will be a key market for the Gran Turismo 3er, and it could also be built there alongside the China Market only 3er Li Longwheelbase Sedan which the 3er GT shares a platform with.

Given that the 5er Gran Turismo preceded the 5er Sedan in production and concept , this will not happen with the 3er. Again like the 5er, the 3er Gran Turismo will appear as a "Pre-Vision Concept" although the 5er GT in production form was seen before the new 5er. For the 3-series GT Concept you will see the 3er GT Concept before the new 3er.

The rendering concentrates on the final exact shape but some details are exaggerated especially the bluntness of the rear. It is bit more streamlined dynamic looking and less bulkier than the (6er) lights on the render.

The headlights I can say are very close to the finished car. Given that the BMW signature headlight shape is now being immitated left,right and center.
It is only right that BMW designers seek to add new interpretations to maintain a single identity.

The 3er Coupe also uses the same formula to add increased sportiness to the front of the car. As does the upcoming new BMW 1er Sporthatch.

If it is going to look like that, I would have to vote it as Ugliest BMW ever.

Oh Man, the top photo looks like an Accord with a 5 series front thrown on, I'm sure it will look way better than that.

Question

What is driving the high position of the nose and hood in all the latest designs? Is it European pedestrian safety regulations or something else?

Looks like someone smashed the rear end. Needs to have more shape like a 4 door m coupe would have looked.

The scans came from Europe and that's where this car should stay if it comes out.
