Lightbulb BMW 4 Series Coupe Concept (F32) vs 3 Series Coupe (E92) Visually Compared

Here are some side-by-side comparisons of the just revealed F32 BMW 4 Series Concept Coupe [full details and photos] against the E92 3 Series Coupe (LCI). The 4 Series Coupe will replace the 3 Series Coupe as BMW's mid-size sports coupe in its lineup.

Keep in mind that we are comparing a concept against a production model, but nonetheless the general styling, shape, and dimensions of the 4 Series Coupe Concept will carry over to the production model. The more conceptually styled elements such as the bumpers, mirrors, fender vents, and wheels will look different on the production model.

Look for the 4 Series Coupe Concept to debut in January at the 2013 Detroit auto show and production to begin in July 2013, for late summer delivery.
