In 2014, BMW is rumored to launch an additional premium compact model based on the 3 Series architecture and the 6 Series Gran Coupe idea.

Built under the codename F36, the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe is a compact four-door coupe that follows the same design principles, at a smaller scale, as the recently launched 6 Series Gran Coupe. The four-door features a longer rear window that flows into a conventional trunk, a design feature that visually increases the side dimension of the car.

The Hofmeister Kink, one of the most iconic BMW design cues, might be now incorporated into the opening of the rear door, a more fluid approach that would also offer additional exit space for rear-sitting passengers.

Insiders say that the 4 Series Gran Coupe aims to be a sportier version of the F30 3 Series sedan. The overall dynamic design would appeal to a younger demographic as well and will be a viable alternative to the high-end 6 Series Coupe.

BMW will price the vehicle slightly higher than the coupe and convertible variants, and it will be considered a niche model for the brand.

    So another sedan from BMW? How will this differ from the 3er or 5er? Why is the 6er a sedan — why is it not a coupe?

    BMW, you’ve lost all sense of yourself.

    I dont get it what the point from putting another car between the 3 and 5 Series what the purpose of that car

    I don’t get this either. If anything, I’d say this is what the 3er should have looked like. It’s definitely sexy, but it’s also just a further splintering of the BMW brand.

    Please don’t keep spawning more and more BMW models. The following cars should not be produced.
    1 series
    4 series
    5 series GT
    X1 and X 6
    We don’t want BMW to becomes as ubiquitous as Ford.

    Hmmm, I thought it was going to get more clear, but it seems to be getting more confusing. I thought the whole deal of the 4 series usage was that BMW was moving toward their even numbered lines being the coupes, and their odd numbered series being the sedans. So I have been reading about how the next generation ///M3 coupe will actually be an ///M4 as a result of that strategy. I say to myself, NO, please, the ///M3 model is iconic, don’t make it the ///M4! Then I read an article like this one saying there will be 4 doors on 4 series cars and I’m totally confused…
