So no more double rings/halos, instead adopting something close to what the i3 and i8 had? Seriously BMW? Now I'm getting a bit upset...

The car doesn't even look like a gran coupe, there is nothing coupe like to the design outside of frameless windows. Years ago BMW said they were going to make 2-doors even series and 4-doors odd series, and then they pull the GC bs. 🤦
Thank you jstein55 for the direct answer. It saved me from having to research the difference.

Anyone else hoping that the new 2 series would have the size and performance of this (with spec bumps and updated bits, as appropriate)...



and the styling cues from this...

Idk if it's just the photo you chose of the 2-series, but it looks fantastic here even next to the 8.

Agreed - and I never really like the 2er.

That's a series 1 gran coupé... or rather it's how it should have been called. This 4 doors gran coupe is not built on the upcoming 2 series platform but on the 1 series.

I agree!

The iconic BMW headlights are slowly disappearing!

You know what's also disappearing? RWD compact cars. So I think losing the halo rings but clinging onto RWD (and probably also 6MT for the upcoming M2) looks like a fair deal to me. Of course, if the whole thing looks hideous, that's another problem, we'll see about that.

https://www.driving.co.uk/news/inter...ase-everybody/

"And so when you arrive, what was it you wanted to change?

DD: Being more brave with all the icons [BMW's traditional design details] we have. I mean you can see it now in the products, that we play with all the icons.

The Hoffmeister [the forward swoop or 'kink' at the base of the window on the rearmost pillar of BMWs], for example — until the G30 every 3 Series had almost the same window graphic. That meant that when you saw prototypes — when you saw a new BMW, it could be the previous model if you just looked at the top of the car. This was something I never understood.

In all these discussions about our icons, people say, 'But you can't change the Hoffmeister, you can't change the kidneys.' But who says so? Mr. Hoffmeister just made one window graphic."

The only link I could find but in other videos/articles as well he has spoken about changing historical elements and has talked about the Hoff kink being an insignificant detail elsewhere.

Front-end overhang looks like it is increasing. No bueno.

Will it be the first or one of the first BMW with recessed door handles? I cannot remember that I have ever seen a Bimmer with those before.

The grille camo is freaking me out! Can one suffer from front-end ptsd? I don't even want to know what's beneath...

I'm jus stoked the belt line and hood lines are finally starting to line up with each other again like the past days...

At this rate, the next, next gen (late 2020's early 2030's) they should be back to being around the same height like e30-e46🙏🏾

I'm wondering how they're doing it though? Maybe shoving the engine further down to get some precious millimeters...?

There is a loooooot of thick camo on the front end. Look how far back the lower grille is.

I think it will look good , i can imagine the G87 M2 with those wide box style flare fenders ! As for the size , it might be a little bit bigger , but not much !
