It has to be a joke but a tiny part of me wants it to be true.

My bet is that its built on an E93 chassis with additional bracing and even without the folding roof weighs more than an E90/E92.

Right ... an Pickup is relatively easy to realize as build on an e93 chassis and this is done hear ... you can easly see that there is simply an short hardtop as Roof installed ... rumors say its an single project for tasks related with motorbikes(Moto-GP?) ... as an fast transporter!

So we can say E93 is a glorified pick-up?

You won't hear any objection from me. I've transported a push mower in my old E46 vert with the top down, and have put my bike in the back seat of my current E93 (with an old blanket to protect the seats of course). Wheels/tires too. It honestly makes a pretty good pickup even without the trunk and roof removed like these BMW guys have done.

You know you'll still buy one (but not the pick up)

I really don't think I would. BMW should not be all things to all people. It is the same reason I really like Apple as a brand. They are great at what they do. If they started building toasters, irons, and hairdryers I would lose interest in the brand. BMW is not and never should be a truck company. Even the X brand is pushing it although they are very good.

Porsche frankly has starting diluting their core values too with cars like the Panamera.
