I would expect new 7er will be act the same here: base model will have exhaust similar to the current M760li. At least to me, that makes sense.

IMO those small features, that today allows you to distinguish top-end model from base model will be one of the selling points for us, the owners, to switch. While owning high-end model, you don't want to be mistaken with newer base model by random bystanders, right
That was my favourite setup in the F chassis.

The smallest engines had a single small exhaust, then some chassis had a slightly larger single exhaust - I think the 316i and 318i vs 320i F30 was like this. Then a pair on one side for the 328i, a single on each side for the 335i, then of course quad on the M3. The V8 non-M cars all had the trapezoidal tip with 2 small pipes inside each which was a lovely feature - it all made sense and was easy. The 760Li had a nice chrome rectangular setup to also distinguish it.

Now just about everything has a big tip on each side.

G70 7-Series Concept Reported to Debut in September

Next BMW 7 Series Will Be Previewed As A Concept In September: Report
Quote:
Originally Posted by Motor1
The current BMW 7 Series received an extensive facelift for the 2020 model year, but the bones of BMW's flagship sedan actually date to 2015. An all-new version is currently in development but we likely won't see it this year. However, it appears we will get a teaser of what to expect in the form of a concept car that might debut at the end of summer.

An unnamed source allegedly connected to BMW said as much to Automotive News Europe, claiming the concept will appear at Germany's IAA Mobility auto show in early September. The report stops short of calling this a specific 7 Series concept, instead saying this vehicle will feature design elements appearing on the next-gen sedan. The concept will reportedly be the first car to utilize BMW's New Class platform, which is designed with electric power first and foremost though it will also be capable of holding internal combustion and hybrid powertrains. It will also be scalable and adaptable for a range of vehicle sizes and categories.

This certainly makes sense for the 7 Series, as we already know a fully electric version (possibly called the i7) is coming. Numerous spy photos suggest an evolutionary approach to the exterior shape, with the possibility of a deep-diving grille similar to the 4 Series growing a bit stronger every day. We've also seen corner cameras on prototypes nestled into the fenders that are likely for blind-spot monitoring or semi-autonomous driving tech, but at this point, much of the car is still well concealed beneath multiple layers of camouflage.

Rumors have suggested the new 7 Series will debut later in 2022 as a 2023 model. Our latest spy photos still show an early test vehicle with placeholder lights and mismatched wheels, so a debut certainly isn't coming soon. If BMW does indeed present a 7-esque concept car in September, that would mesh well with a late-2022 debut timeframe.

That's a bit surprising, if true, since BMW explicitly said in the press release that first announced this new architecture that it will not arrive until 2025. However, it's not impossible that a concept vehicle could preview an early evolution of the technology.

Since Motor1 wasn't clear, while this concept vehicle may employ the Neue Klasse platform, the G70 7 Series absolutely will not. Instead, it will use an evolution of CLAR. This is also true for the G60 5 Series coming in 2023. I would expect the Neue Klasse to debut with the next generation X3 and X4, and the next generation 3 Series soon after.

Also, while Motor1 did not commit to the 2022 release date for the G70, the established mid-2022 date is all but certain at this point.

BMW is really going to have to step it up with the next generation. The interior of the current model was lukewarm from the start. The styling was also forgettable until the LCI. I see a lot of them around LA and they look nice besides the nostrils.

To support the new iDrive 8 it looks like all new car will come with the long rectangular screen.

Nowadays when it comes to new BMW models I wouldn't be surprised if this would be the actual position of the license plate

The steering wheel looks very nice. It's refreshing to see a different design direction than the same steering wheel all BMWs have now.

Very nice steering wheel!

Looking at the headrest, I wonder if that is a speaker or wood trim?

A nod to what the next 5 series may resemble as well perhaps?

Is that a flat bottom to the steering wheel? If so, why am earth do manufacturers think that's a good idea?
Seems like another of the increasing priority over "style" over ergonomics
