We recently learned of several new chassis codes for upcoming BMW models in the future. While these aren’t groundbreaking finds, they are interesting to car nerds and BMW faithful alike. Some of the more exciting models whose chassis codes have been revealed are those of the BMW 8 Series, M8, M3, M4 and even the upcoming X5 M and X6 M. What’s more interesting is that not all of them are what we expected them to be.
So the BMW 8 Series will be made under G-based chassis codes. For instance, the BMW 8 Series Coupe will get the G14 designation. The 8 Series Convertible will get the G15 designation. More exciting, though, is the fact that the 8 Series Gran Coupe will get the G16 designation. That fact makes the 8 Series GC feel so real and is very exciting. What’s odd, though, is the fact that the BMW M8 will not get a G-based chassis code for the M8. The BMW M8 will use the F92 for the Coupe, F91 for the Convertible and F93 for the Gran Coupe.
All of the BMW M SUVs will also get F-based codes. The BMW X3 M will be an F97 and the X4 M will be an F98, while the X5 M will get an F95 code and the X6 M an F97. However, the upcoming BMW M2, M3 and M4 will all get G-based codes. So the M3 will be a G80, with the M4 being a G82. The M2 will be a ‘G8’ as well but the last digit is unknown. So it’s a bit odd that some M cars will have G-designations while some have ‘F’.
For us BMW nerds, this is exciting news. For normal people, this is about as exciting as algebra. Though it does give us a glimpse into some of BMW’s plans for the future. It’s exciting to know that there will be a BMW M8 Gran Coupe, as well as a proper X4 M. There are other codes revealed but these are just the more interesting ones.
