If BMW simply built cars that looked like their sexy renders, I think we would all be happy. Problem is, they don't.

Like I said back in 2009, if BMW built this car up here, I'd be all over it.
Thats a photoshoped X1. its just been smooshed and streched... it looks phenomenal, its just not original.

...all things to all people ... is a horrible stratagy, just a personal opinion but reckless expansion in the guise of "allowing for funds to support the models enthusiests really love" is tragic

we dont need a lexus-toyota-scion... I guess we have in rolls-bimmer-mini

.... Im not company exec material... but everyone on earth needs "growth over last years growth" forever, its greed and irrational.

..ok enough ranting.... soon we will have the 128Li and hte clubman "year of hte boar" edition.... *sigh*

3er GT will be based upon the extended 3er Li platform for China, but the look is lower and sleeker than the 5er Gran Turismo, more like a fastback. The twin hatch will not be carried over.
Maybe some of my buddy's that are in love with the old Saabs will convert to the 3er GT!

So a tiny RWD sports car like the old Smart Roadster? Except its all carbon fiber?

WIN!

(I know its electric - who cares? Small, RWD, lightweight two seater = killer car)

Yes it could be electric or it could use a small combustion engine taken from the Motorrad division.
In the future you will see a greater synergy between these two divisions, Motor cycle engines etc are lighter , more efficient and more compact.
BMW have tested the new in-line six developed for Motorrad within a car chassis.

If they build this car and put a motorcycle engine in it, then it will officially reach absolutely-must-have status as far as I am concerned.

But where is the family car, something a person could fit three kids (two in isofix child seats) across the back of, there are loads of dads who hate the idea of a mini van but need one but would leap at a BMW MPV. Mercedes almost got it right with the R class but they screwed up by building it on the ML/GL platform, pricing it wrong and making it so darn ugly, if they had built this on a C class platform and priced it somewhere between the C & E I'm sure it would have been a winner.

I give up on BMW. They're not the car company they use to be. Geared towards driving pleasure. Now all they want is your money, and they still cut corners in quality and features. Congrats BMW, you are officially no different then a Chevy. Might as well start offering a pick-up truck as well.

BMW way back right up to the early 90's never had very high quality standards, if you think they did then you are kidding yourself, Mercedes were always build like a bank vault, BMW never were.
