can anyone tell me why the front end of the coupe is being rendered to look like the front end of the sedan?

when in the last 15 years has the front end of the coupe looked like the sedan?

the only time the two ever looked the same was when the E92 M front end "migrated" over to the E90 M front end.

people are just getting lazy...
Yep, you're correct.

I am certain (!) that the headlights will NOT connect to the kidneys the same way they do on the standard F30 sedan. They will still of course connect, but not in the same manner with that little tweak right before they touch the lower part of the kidney. I expect more connection at the top of the grill and then the lights will pull away as you get to the lower part of the grill. You can see this on the 328i hommage concept, as well as the same outline on the F10 LCI update.
