The BMW 3 Series Coupe is no more. It’s set to be replaced by the 4 Series Coupe, and this concept shows how it’ll look. The production version of the 4 Series Coupe Concept is expected in showrooms by the end of 2013, with a 4 Series Convertible and more practical four-door Gran Coupe following.
From the look of the car in these pictures, BMW is pulling the same trick it pulled with the concept version of the 6 Series Gran Coupe – so apart from a few minor details, this Coupe is ready for the road.
Setting the 4 Series apart from the more sensible 3 Series saloon is a sportier profile featuring a low-slung rear end.
The car looks far more dynamic than the current 3 Series Coupe, with a track that’s 45mm wider at the front and 80mm at the rear. The roofline is 16mm lower, too.
The L-shaped kink in the rear window is a theme repeated in details all around the new car, such as the air vents behind the front wheels (BMW calls them Air Breathers), the door handles and the LED signature in the lights.
