If the multiple rumors for this week weren’t enough, a new one has just showed up on our radar. The famous rendering artist over at Autobild, Huckfeldt, has created a new computer generated image of what they call “the new BMW CS or 8 Series”.
Before we dive into these news, keep in mind that these are just simply rumors and speculations at this point, and we have not heard anything else through different channels, but it is still our duty to report them.
A year ago, BMW announced the cancellation of the highly awaited BMW CS, the concept that made waves ever since its unveiling at the Shanghai Motor Show.
More recently, some sporadic rumors came afloat mentioning a possible revival of the CS Concept, but branded under a different name. One rumor refers to the CS as the 7 Series CS or even 8 Series, a vehicle built on the same platform as the F01 models.
To make things even more confusing, in 2008, the news of a BMW 8 Series GT kept the headlines of several auto publications, but BMW never confirmed or denied the news.
Huckfeldt has been known for years as someone close to BMW sources, but his design renderings have not always been spot on and looking at the image below, we believe it’s simply a design exercise rather than being based on actual facts.
It will be interesting to follow the news in the next days and see if anyone confirms or denies the article on Autobild.
