The F35 is a sedan version of the F34, making it for all intents and purposes a stretch F30. There are many LWB versions of cars made in or for the Chinese market not available elsewhere, from many manufacturers, including Buick, which in China is a prestige brand.

Yup like this E300L I saw in Beijing.

win win..if they dont make a new 3 gt I have a original current model that I will anyway keep for another 3 or more years .Black kidney grille probably won't look nice in my bsm car. I would consider black exhaust as the twin tiny chrome exhaust in a black bumper looks a bit out of place

I wanted the 6GT to replace my 3GT, but it was too long to fit my my garage. Got a G01 X3M40i No regrets - especially since I have had to haul my father-in-law's stuff 3 times since December (to retirement home, to another retirement home, to storage).

Good choice Slalom. I loved my 328IX GT and wanted another but couldn't find one. I ended buying a 640 IX GT 2018 to replace it. The car is wonderful but much larger in every way. Also the cost is alot more and that puts it in another class with the brilliant BMW X5. The X3 M40I is the big engine in a compact body which makes it fun to drive.

Well it got replaced by the 330i for the LCI, so if you were looking for new cars, that might explain it.

The i4 really looks like a gt

The pictures linked from the future vehicle post look more gt than Gran coupe. So, not sure it's truly read yet. But also looks like production is pushed out till 21.

I guess before it was only announced that they weren't updating the car...NOW it's official

http://www.bmwusanews.com/newsrelease.do?id=3480&mid=

Discontinued models for 2020
BMW 3 Series GT
BMW 6 Series GT
BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe

I guess 6GC --> 8GC

Although I gotta say, I didn't see this until it was posted to jalopnik, and reading there I really don't understood the hate people have for the car. I'll admit there's one angle where the rear might look a bit funny, and of course that's the one they always use, but I think it's overall a great looking car, or I wouldn't have bought one.

Style is subjective, but wow, I didn't think I was in that big of a minority (especially for a crowd that longs for wagons). Maybe it's one of those things that just snowball as something popular to hate on, like nickelback? Or maybe they've just never driven one!

I don't understand the disdain for the 3GT as well but oh well. Also surprised they're cutting the 6GT already. But then again they are ending a lot of models soon to cut costs. BMWs revenue has been on the decline.

It makes sense as BMW appears to be trying to combine two hatchback 4 door 3 series vehicles into one. Somehow, they need to allow for more interior space than in the current Gran Coupe which is very tight and unfriendly. That will impact the roofline, and they may have found a new compromise that looks better to more people and provides a reasonable rear seat. Can only hope...

Somewhat off-topic, but when I got back to that link just now, the 6 GT is no longer in that list of discontinued models...
