The news last week was that BMW is working on a 2 Series Gran Coupe scheduled to arrive in 2019. According to German media, BMW’s Chief Development Officer, Klaus Fröhlich, is advocating for the rear-wheel drive Gran Coupe to join the coupe and convertible, but the project has yet to be approved.
The 2 Series Gran Coupe was said to sport short overhangs at the front and rear with a coupe-like profile all around. Because of the stretch to accommodate a slightly lengthened platform, the elongated roofline is lower, more rounded. The rendering seen here was created by auto motor und sport and uses current design cues from other BMW cars. The actual model is likely to have a modern look based on a new design language which will debut with the next X3.
