2018 6 Series 2 seater - 911 competitor Rumor ?!?!

I know this is just a rumor but this is a huge step forward if true. BMW has never really had a true pure performance car that competes with the 911 class. Saw a few articles about the next gen 6 series will be built on a completely different platform, 2 seater and will adopt the framework of what comes out from the Toyota/BMW partnership that will be used in the new Supra supercars.

http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1268279

I've been wanting this for a long time and I hope it comes true. More competition is always better for everyone.

The first to use the new architecture is the Z5 Roadster/Z5(6) Coupe. The major details about the chassis are being kept very quiet even by the more liberal insiders. Those who know will agree...it's nothing but good and a radical change for BMW. It will be a serious drivers car. Future variants will be developed as well above and below the first entrants.

Man I CAN NOT wait to see the Z5. I was really a Z3 and Z4 roadster guy but their chassis wasn't good and caused me to roll all over the place. If it is a serious drivers car with major chassis changes, then i put me on the waiting list

The best thing about Z5 is that it so well disguised that there are virtually no clues to how it will actually appear.
But close up photography shows such details to reflect its now intentions. Such as very low nose and wide kidney grille.

But yes Z5 will be a serious sports car. It will have a Carbon content that will shame high end sports cars as well as a weight advantage. Hence why a soft top roof has now been adapted.
A benefit of pooling resources between BMW and Toyota in which costs shared over materials allows increased implementation.
The car exercises a very light and minimalistic cockpit, important for a sports car but still current with modern technology and luxuries.

Of course as for this car engines will be familiar,but the outputs will be exclusive and a manual will be available for the more enthusiastic driver.

Thank you very much for continuing to drop hints about the Z5, SCOTT. That render looks terrific.

I have one more burning question - what do you think about the chances for a V8 in this car? Do you expect something with eight cylinders to make an appearance under the hood, or will we get six cylinders at most, coupled perhaps with Power eDrive?

^^ I would bet on the latter, the potential output of those new hybrid setups is supposedly beyond 600+hp in full-fat form, not sure where this one will sit. I hope they don't go out of their way to make sure this car is slower than some other model (ahem M3 ahem) but you know the Germans

I have not seen anything regarding a V8. As I mentioned previously this is a BMWi programme for Sports Cars. Which is more in line with an entirely new philosophy with the focus on performance through weight reduction.

Engines expected are a four And a six cylinder but with exclusive output unique to this car which assists the less is more philosophy from BMWi.
The Toyota will offer a hybrid and it not unthinkable BMW might do so later.

If it will look like this and with the taillights from the 328 hommage it will definitly have the best look in its class.

Thank you

Finally going to name the 340 as M340!
Small detail but sets it apart a little like the S4 and Merc C43

I just hope that Bmw Canada is clever enough to bring the G21 in Canada. Mercedes now have both the C-Class and E-Class wagon in Canada.

I wouldn't be surprised if they didn't. I've seen more 3er and 5er GT's than I do wagons.

For the 5 serie there hasn't been any F11 in here. But for the 3 serie I would say the opposite I have seen much more wagon than Gt. Just look at the number of Gt and the number of Touring for sale on autotrader it's almost 3:1.
