8-Series grand coupe'
 
My girlfiend said she saw one of these on the road today... Is that even possible? Are they now in production?

I saw a review on it already on Motorweek so it probably was a manufacture demo.

Nothing about it on BMW's website.

Isn't that just a new 6 series grand coupe? (which are already in production)

I just talked to her online and she said it looked like this... But this is a OLD concept back from 2010... :hmm:

I think you are correct, so maybe she DID actually see the 8-concept I posted in the post before this... :yikes:

They're selling them. I've been at the dealership twice lately and they have a couple in stock. Although she might've seen a 5-series GT - the front end looks similar to the 6-series GS concept.

The 6er grand coupe or 8 series concept?

I find that hard to believe... but it would be pretty cool!

RIGHT?! She says it looks like that concept one, but they do look similar, so it's probly the 8 production car that briangl92 mentioned.

I still don't like how they're calling 4 door cars coupes. It's just not right. :tsk:

Also, she probably saw a 6 series they all look so damn alike anyway

6-series Gran Coupe. There's only speculation of another 8-series.

As pointed out it is the 6 Series Gran Coupe. It is an absolute blast to drive!

The back seat isn't huge but it serves its function.

Wait so an xboxhueg sedan that's nearly 200" long manages to have a smallish backseat?

What kind of witchcraft is this :rofl:

MercForHire 10-09-2012 01:21 PM

People on e46fanatics can only dream about owning this car.

The 'coupe' styling of the roof line limits headroom and the length of the passenger area significantly. Is is really a coupe like car they added two extra doors to so the back seats are like a coupe but you have your own door.

That is, if they think it's worth owning.

true dat. E46 with FI is a supercar. Why buy a lowly 8 series?:D

SLVR JDM 10-09-2012 02:07 PM

She probably saw a honda accord.
