oh my god! you have zero idea how much happier I got after reading this lol, BMW really needs a super car.
I did notice you used the word "sports car" and not "super car" but that's better than nothing I suppose.

On a side note, Rolls Royce Wraith, if priced similar to Ghost, is going to be about $250k.
That's a world different from a would be 8 series, a true competitor to CL, and probably would be priced somewhere about 100k.

If the market for large coupe is not great currently, then I understand not making 8 series but saying 6 series is successor to 8 series?
why didn't they just keep the 8 series name then? and make a smaller 6 series for people looking for $60k coupe version of 5 series?
I think you might've meant that the 6 series fills the market for people looking for modern day 8 series and not literally a successor but either way, I understand the market isn't great for large coupes.

I do hope BMW names the future CS, 8 series gran coupe! And name the future super car, M10

Thank you for the clarification, much appreciated!
