I applaud the innitiative of attempting to render the future BMW 8 Series, but this time, the folks at GlobalMotors have failed. The initial concept was a a four-door coupe to compete with Porsche Panamera, Aston Martin Rapide and Mercedes-Benz CLS3 AMG.

As we have mentioned before, the four-door four-seater GT/8-Series will have a large wheelbase, an approximate length of 196.8 inch(about 5 meters) and is expected to be based on the underpinnings of the new 2009 7 series, but with a sportier chassis.

I’m assuming that those particular information were the base for the BMW 8 Series renderings, but I strongly disagree with their attempt at “portraying” the car. It resembles too much the new 7 Series and it doesn’t really bring anything new. The coupe lines are slick, but hideous and they contrast the massive front-end.

I have faith in the BMW’s designing team and I hope the new 8 Series will live up to its expectations.

P.S If you missed Andrew’s first 8 Series article last week, you can catch it here.
