Latest Rumors on BMW Z4, 2 Series GC, X2, X7, 6 Series, 9 Series (Automobile Mag)

Latest Rumors on BMW Z4, 2 Series GC, X2, X7, 6 Series, 9 Series

Automobile Magazine shares what they believe are the future of several upcoming BMW models.

X2 coming next year
X7 comes late 2018
• Super-luxurious edition of X7 comes 2019
• No hatchback 1 Series for next generation, replaced by 2 Series Gran Coupe instead in 2019
• No Z4 Coupe variant coming, only soft-top roadster model
9 Series waiting for green light. Would come as four-door coupe with twin-turbo 6 cylinder paired to two electric motors for 500hp combined. Would come in 2020 and projected to sell no more than 8,000 units.
3 Series GT could possibly merge with next gen 4 Series Gran Coupe
Project iX, a 3 Series electric hatchback could be on the way
• Next gen 6 Series expected in 2018/2019 will reportedly lose the convertible version and presumably also the Gran Coupe version if the 9 Series is produced, leaving only the Coupe version. Whatever 6 Series model(s) remain, it will lose some 500 pounds using BMW's CLAR platform, have optional air suspension, rear-wheel steering, and be powered by BMW's quad-turbo inline 6 cylinder making 550hp, all to help it take on the 911.
Also see our upcoming models timeline/info page for additional details on some of these models and more.
