Roundel stirs up debate in the BMW world. In the latest issue of the magazine, an article around the BMW M3 Sedan being replaced by an M3 Gran Turismo has already begun to create controversy in the BMW world.

Following the same principle as the 5 Series GT, the designers are looking to create an M3 Gran Turismo vehicle that would be able to compete with cars like the RS4 Avant or Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG T-Modell.

It is not the first time we hear about the M3 Sedan being phased out in the next generation, but it is certainly a premiere that an M3 Gran Turismo is thrown into the mix. We have already learned that the company will be producing a 3 Series Gran Turismo vehicle when the new generation 3 Series launches.

Just an unrealistic rendering by InsideLine

Despite being published and republished by respectable automotive magazines, we still advise you to take these rumors with a grain of salt.

InsideLine goes even further and creates an atrocious looking rendering of an M3 Gran Turismo, using as the starting point the current M3 Sedan bodystyle.

P.S. Ignore the license plate on the car.
