BMW Decides Not to Build the M4 Gran Coupe

With the recent launch of the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe, everybody was expecting an M4 Gran Coupe version coming this fall, based on the statements that Norbert Reithofe, the CEO at BMW, had launched on a press release.

To further confirm the misinterpretation of Reithhofe, Jorg Bartels, the M sales boss from BMW, also declared in Australia during the launch of the M3 Sedan and the M4 Coupe, that the company would not built an M version of the 4-Series Gran Coupe.

The reason of not building an M4 Gran Coupe version was due to the massive production volume of the 4-Series Gran Coupe, as the model is built “in a different factory to both the 3 Series (sedan) and 4 Series (coupe), so there is a lot of challenges there,” to also quote Bartels.

The F30 3-Series Sedan and the fresh F80 M3 Sedan are being built at the BMW`s plant in Regensburg, while the F32 4-Series Coupe and the F82 M4 are being manufactured in Munich.

On the other hand, the BMW F36 4-Series Gran Coupe is headed for the production line at the BMW`s facility in Dingolfing, so the building of an M4 Gran Coupe would pose serious problems to the company while dealing with three models at the same time.
