Not really. The F10 is over 10" longer than the F30. The F30 extended wheel base only adds 3 or 4 inches I believe, not 10.

If you look at the 5 series vs 6GC, the 6GC works so well because, like SCOTT26 said, there is extra almost 4" in length to make the coupe roof line work and not end abruptly like the Audi A7.

Personally, 3 or 4 inches longer than the F30 would make it the perfect size for me. The 5 series has gotten too big and 6 GC is gorgeous but just way too big for my needs. My F30 sometimes feels just a little too "juvenile" for me, in my late 30's. So a couple more inches (preferably translating to some extra room INSIDE, which it would), would be welcome in a 4GC. That and it would probably play better visually.

It is a five passenger vehicle. One of the "leaked" pictures shows the back seat with three seat belts.

Anybody holding out for the 4 GSC (grand sleek coupe)? It'll be a zero door version (hatch entrance) of the 4 door version coupe of the 2 door version coupe of the 3 series sedan. Base MSRP $87,900 + $925 destination + options.

It's a beauty, curious to the actual street pricing when it hits the floors. Is BMW's strategy to flood the market? So many vehicles to choose from.

The new 4 series Gran Coupe (F36)

Photo's leaked of the new F36 Gran Coupe...
...found these on the Dutch website Autoblog.nl

Looking good I must say, although I prefer the 2-doors coupe over this one in the long run.

Enjoy with this preview, the rest will surely follow later this evening or on sunday:

Looks more premium and "expensive" than I thought it was going to be.

I have to correct my earlier comments. Based on these first pics, I don't see too much difference between the F30 and F36. Roofline difference is to subtle, I expected something sleeker than this. I have to admit that at this point I see more potential in an M3 GT then the GC.

The sedan without door seal noise issue since it's a coupe design lol.

Other than that, looks like a F30 pretty much.
