The fellows at Bimmerpost are breaking the news today: the upcoming BMW Sports Car Concept has been photographed for the first time.

Despite the cover, for the first time, we have the opportunity to see rumored BMW Sports Car Concept that will be unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show. Now, the question remains whether we’re looking at the M1 Concept Hybrid or the Z Vision Concept.

According to Dr. Draeger, the sports car concept will feature “sustainable design and material elements” and will feature the next generation efficiency technology.

Judging from these photos, we believe we’re seeing for the first time, the new grille style, upturned which was rumored to be featured on the 135i Supersports car. This Sports Car Concept is also a four-door model.

We’ll be back with an update shortly, in the mean time, enjoy these photos since they seem to cover a spectacular new concept from BMW.

Update: According to sources close to BMW. this seems to be the Vision Z Concept. This could also be a case study since it’s on shipping blocks and temporary wheels. Also, the brake calipers and side mirrors are missing.

    Looks like a Mitsu Lancer Sportback…

  2. Monte_Cristo says:

    Wow! I really love the back of the car, I can’t wait to see more.

  3. Ale says:

    I can´t wait!!

  4. DAv says:

    its a foor door i think look closely

  5. Carlos Perez says:

    Its a two door, look at the vertical line in the middle of the body, the one that indicates that is a two door because if it was a 4 door it would have another line more closely to the wheel.

    Looks AWESOME BTW !!!!!

  6. Giom says:

    Wow! This concept looks really cool. The design looks sharp and aerodynamic. Very wedgy. My thinking is that it might even introduce elements from the forth coming 3-series, or even One series…

    Can’t wait to see it!

  7. Matt Stokes says:

    The front end is like the 1 series super sports renderings from a while back, upside down kidneys and horizontal slits for headlamps..

    Not loving the two tone skirts – thought that died with the E34 M5!

  8. Stratus650 says:

    This is a non working sample, the brake rotors don’t even have calipers on them.

  9. viper says:

    It could be a 4door too , most likley a 2 door…Im confused…..doesnt look spectacular , I dont like the front , but hey whatever they came up with and -make- it real good for bmw

    • Giom says:

      You’ve got to be kidding me… You don’t like the front end of a car that is covered up with a piece of plastic. Talk about pre-judgment.

  10. Mauro Corti says:

    Where the hell are the kidneys?

  11. Martin says:

    6er GT I guess. It looks 4 door. If you look close you see a gap below the back door. Also the front door would be longer if it was a 2 door car. Where are the side mirrors?

  12. rum says:

    I actually think its the new 6 series…

  13. Hantra says:

    Front end looks like a Rustang.

    BMW marketing is genius. No reasonable person should ever believe that any shots get out there unless BMW wants them out there. This is a great example of that.

  14. Carlos Perez says:

    The only way that it could have 4 door is if it has suicide doors, phantom style of not is a two door.

  15. John Warner says:

    Looks like a Mercedes CLS. Great style but not very functional for a 4 door sedan. If you’ve ever tried getting into the back of a CLS, you’d know what I mean. Why doesn’t BMW build a real super sports car like the Audi R8. We haven’t seen a mid engine BMW supercar since the M1 back in 1979. I just read an article on about this. It would be nice to hear others opinions on this. Wouldn’t it be great to be reading about a V=10 powered M midship BMW.

    well guys this only can be new z2 or m1 like concept…but i think its z2 cause of its grills(but side windows looks very much like m1 hommage)and im so happy cause i just love that upside down grills its so aggressive,it would be cool to see that kind of grills at new 1 series …

  17. Jblack4083 says:

    The back looks similar to a 6-series.

    Im also confused because it seems to have two doors not four like the article is saying. Theres a line pretty far back onto the side and then the area behind the line isnt enough for another door.

    TO top if off, the gap between the wheels and the body are HUGE.

  18. Auday says:

    The car looks small with a very short front and back overhaul, I’d say it’s a 4 door car judging by the obvious line separating the front door.
    front engine indeed, but way back behined the front axile which makes for a good weight distribution that is close to the center of the car. I would also guess that it’s an AWD car.
    Front looks like flat, wide and high, something similar to many indepenent rendering showed lately.
    I dont think this car will be anything more than a design concpet. The lines are too radical to be a production car, but who knows.
    Lets wait and see.

    I am so disappointed in bmw , the new designer obviously has no originality and style , he lives in 1989 or something , just look at this thing it is ridiculous
