Those of you who are already bored of the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe may want to grab a look at these new renders from the “automotive manipulator” Theophilus Chin.
We already know that it wasn’t BMW’s idea to come up with a four door coupe so we might as well embrace the idea that the Bavarians will end up looking for other inspiration sources on the followup.
Since the CLS
estate shooting break has been confirmed, why not see a future with a BMW 6 Series estate Gran Touring?
The renders are actually a lot better than I would have expected so kudos to their creator. The idea of a BMW 6 Series station wagon doesn’t really seem that appealing and the new look makes it even less so.
Even though the Mercedes CLS Shooting Break has a better looking rear end than the 6 Series Gran Touring render, it’s not exactly at the top of the desirability list. How will BMW make it work?
That is, if anybody at BMW even grants a second look to these renders, let alone start compiling a business case for it. Honestly, I don’t see the BMW 6 Series Gran Touring happen.
Perhaps the Germans can make it look better than the renders but it will certainly loose the key selling point of the whole lineup, the coupe looks.
No matter how many doors it has, how much space in the back it can offer and such, as long as it’s doesn’t at least resemble the general lines of a coupe, the BMW 6 Series Gran Touring will be a struggling product.
