After months of confusion and conflicting reports, we have recently learned from trustworthy sources that the next generation BMW 6 Series Convertible will continue to be offered with a soft top, despite initial rumors of a hardtop variant using the same technology as in the popular 3 Series Cabrio.

The next 6-series coupe and convertible will be radically different from the current cars’ styling. The current 6 Series is very polarizing due to the “Bangle butt” it carries, but the redesigned 6er, is rumored to be a “super sleek” vehicle, as seen in these latest spy shots as well.

A preview of what is hidden underneath the camouflage was revealed two weeks ago when BMW displayed their latest concept at the Beijing Motor Show: BMW Gran Coupe.

According to sources close to the brand, the 2012 6 Series will import some design cues from this latest concept which in its turn is showcasing some design lines from the canceled CS Concept.

The 2011 6 Series is slightly longer and wider than the current generation. It will have shorter overhangs and a lower roofline. The side design outlines a more muscular look emphasized by the imposing front-fascia.

Moving at the rear-end, the profile brings back the same CS Concept memories, mostly around the rear quarter. The bootlid is integrated into the body and it curves around the rear quarter.

The first model to be unveiled will be the 6 Series Convertible later this fall, followed shortly by the Coupe.

    It does have a soft top. Yesterday I saw one in Barcelona.
    The front looks just like the grand coupé. I took one picture with my mobile phone (3/4 rear shot), to what e-mail can I send it? Saludos

    First of all, sorry for my english :S, I’m a spanish boy. I think this is not a soft top, it’s a hard top covered with cloth. With the current Z4, BMW used the same type of camouflage for the top. You can also see the lines of the rear hood in the lateral, not in the upper side as a normal or soft top car. This is just for opening the rear hood to hide the hard top.
    Unfortunately I don’t think that BMW sells a soft top version of the new 6 series…
    In any case, congratulations for your blog ;-)

    As usual no complaints about BMW, but i think the exterior is being the same almost for every year and it has to be redesigned.
