The Autoexpress article about new M3 is not much more than BS. They seem to know less than we here and the article itself is just full of ball-park speculations. And the engine...development of current 1M + 100 hp more...ok, how many of us eat that?

I think it looks great but I'm bummed they're not keeping the V8 for the M. I'd rather have a V8 over an I6 any day, turbo or not...

Both coupe & sedan look stunning! Let these renderings be the final product BMW.

The coupe looks very much like the E92 with sharper lines from the side.
The front is sleek.

Standard 3 render looks terrible.

M3 render looks great, though from the side it looks like an Audi (not to say that's bad)

Autoexpress' renderings are shitty... but the front rendering of the sedan of Auto Motor und Sport is great, better than the coupe, the coupe is aggressive but busy... the back looks like crap on all renderings especially the GT and the wagon ... hope only Auto Motor und Sport's front makes it to production. I thank god they are only renderings

Really, that front end on the red 3 looks exactly like a Hyundai Genesis with the fog lights and all. Hope it doesn't make production like that

The M3 render is awesome, 3+ years is too long a wait for that beauty. Hopefully it'll match the C7 performance wise.......while you're at it, how about throwing in some cool colors for it because the current M3's colors are weak!

Cleaned it up a little. Got rid of the chrome etc. It's actually not too bad. It would be better if it used a new bumper but it also shows how great the current M3 bumper is. It still fits with a different design.

looks too much like the mitsubishi evo... I hate it. BMW is supposed to lead not follow... This is just like what Acura did to the TL....

Where do we begin?

First of all these are not “official” they are using “official” descriptions but executing them incorrectly. Some of the details are correct but are over exaggerated in execution.

With the advent of the Concept 6er Coupe I was afraid that the 6er will become the basis for the next 3er Coupe. And in truth , yes the next 3er Coupe becomes like a mini-6er by adding a more premium edge to the traditional sporting image of the 3er Coupe but it is performed differently so that it is recognisable as a “Premium Entry” BMW Coupe.
The design direction continues with an appearance that seperates sedan from Coupe like the E92 had done. The seperation has done well for BMW it gives the 3er it’s own identity and that is something that will be carried over.

Some details from the 6er will be interpreted on the 3er Coupe in their own way such as headlights mimicing the current car with indicator units located underneath, a swooping diagonal typical BMW characterline that adds more depth to the upper part of the car. A similiar break line in the lower flanks is evident but does not rise as high as the 6er , although the upper lines do not connect with the lower “wave” if you draw a line between them it is nigh on perfect.

The rear of the car retains the 3er enclosed bootlid but the rear lights wrap around more with the L-shape of the unit higher up in the bootlid. From the rear wing of the car the rear lights wrap around and shoot diagonally upwards to the lid , it enhances the new sporty character of the new 3er Coupe.

The BMW 3er Gran Turismo is not a complete facsimile of the 5er GT .
Knowing the 3er segment all too well . BMW have gone for a more traditional mix of coupe and sedan , the roof is lower and the car is more dynamic looking.
It is stretched by using the extended wheelbase platform for the F30 3er for the Chinese market , the brief for the 3er GT is individual style , performance and comfort but also for driving enthusiasts.

The next M3 is so far ahead that it is too early to confirm what it will look like as the ideas for the appearance are still in development. They have ideas on the raft of engineering and powerplant etc but be rest assured the next M3 will not feature LED foglights because as covered before on the foglight matter “we need the space to allow air to cool the brakes” .

This render reminds me of an Aston. Nice.

is it me or is BMW making every model level look identical to its older sibling. Need to get away from that and create distinctive styling with an appetite for appreciation.

SCOTT26,

Thanks a lot for your details. I can picture it all in my head and I think it will look good. Couple of things though I wanted to check, what do the front grilles look like? Also, what is the interior like?
