That's how I see it, too. Rumors are that BMW wants to revive the "CS Concept," the concept from 2007 that was meant to bridge the gap between BMW and Rolls Royce. That car should be named 8 series Gran Coupe.
According to Scott, currently there is no market for 8 series coupe, but that might change in the future. So reserve 8 series name and call the future super car, M10.
