In less than two years, BMW will launch the next generation F32 3 Series Coupe. Built on the same platform as the F30 2012 BMW 3 Series sedan that launches next year, the F32 3 Series Coupe will continue to differentiate itself through the exterior design.

What is going to seperate the Coupe further from the sedan will be the inclusion of different shapes for the headlights and rear lights, and different sculpture for the lower flanks along the body.

Sources close to BMW says the headlights will be a derivative from those found on the new 6 Series Coupe, with a more squarish shape. The signal indicators are said to be incorporated underneath the main light unit, another feature that will differentiate the coupe from the sedan.

The kidney-grille becomes larger but also sharper around the edges, and where the two grills meet, the edges are slightly rounded.

A dramatic sloping line that breaks over the rear wheel arch adds depth to the rear of the car, as seen on the new 6 Series; the line then continues in dramatic fashion towards the front wheel arch, similar to the upcoming X3.

The rear of the car will again like the E92 be different from the sedan. Whereas the new sedan receives a typical BMW L-shape design to provide continuity, the new 2013 3 Series Coupe will retain a new stylish look inspired by the current car. The upside down L-Shape at the top edge is rounder as the bootlid sits on top.

First test mules are expected to hit the road late this year and 2013 BMW 3 Series Coupe will most likely debut in 2012 at Paris Motor Show.

    I hope that the future BMW trend is to avoid what is audi: photocopy in many different sizes the same car … should be a stylistic choice more courageous, less submissive to oriental tastes and more consistent with the bmw style … but maybe it’s too late, too bad!

      It’s pretty obvious that that is exactly what they are doing. That is why Chris Bangle “left” BMW. He thought each BMW should have it’s own unique design. That is why the previous 7 series, 5 series, and 3 series were easy to tell apart. Now that Bangle is gone, BMW is making each series look nearly identical both inside and out.

    • Chris

      It’s not a bad thing. Look at what we ended up with: dead ends such as the HIDEOUS 1-series, ugly 6-series, and horrible looking 7 series.

      The new 1, 6, and 7-series are and will be huge improvements from the last generation.

      • Loe

        Umm …. the 7 series was a huge trend setter (see how others have copied the trunk), the old 6 Series was an instant classic that people still love till today, the E60 was a masterpiece. BMW is going through Evolution phase …………… Bangle was Revolution phase so watch out for the next set of vehicles after these current bland/safe vehicles

    Thank god all we’re seeing is renderings. This one does look a little better than the last one.

  • Chris

    Looks nice. I need something a bit different now that there are sooooo many used E92s flooding the market.

    headlights and kidneys dont look right compared to the write up. its still hot tho, it’ll obviously look better everyone!

  • Raddy

    Bring back Bangle. The 7 series is stunning. the 5 is nice but only nice, not stunning. And this 3 looks blah. I thought I was going to get a 5 for sure, but now I’m delaying.

    x6 is descent , x5 95% the same , ugly x3 , little uglier x1 , now super small x0 .

    • Lane

  • Bryce

    It seems like I’m one of the few people that really like this rendering! I especially like thinking about what the M version of this rendering would look like!!

  • Gentsibuyi

    beema has done it once more, everything they doing is working, wait till we actually see it live, the current 3 is a panty dropper, the m3 is even meaner, the 2012 6, is mean, the m6 even more of a demon, the m1 is evil, and this forthcoming f32 coupe is hot, cant wait to see the M…..love it

  • RobbyH

    Bring back Bangle?  The E60 was definitely one of the ugliest BMW or any other make during the same period..
