OK maybe 5 years is a bit much, but its not uncommon for roadster/cabrio variations of cars to come along 1-3 years after then coupe/sedan.
Its historically time to market from a rendering only stage is ~5 years.
Id also be shocked if BMW put out a car that looked this much like something out of star wars... Personally id be embarrassed driving that thing around it looks like a UFO.
