Rumor Mill: All-New 2018 BMW 6-Series Convertible Might Not Be in the Cards

Read Time:1 Minute, 10 Second

The rumor mill flying around for some time hinted at the possibility that the all-new BMW 6-Series, scheduled for an official debut in 2018, might arrive on the market without the convertible version.

The current F12 Convertible and F13 Coupe have been on the market for around seven years, with the company initially planning a makeover of both versions.

But according to a new report from Automobile, the 6-Series won`t make the final finish. More than that, the new 6-Series Gran Coupe might also be left in the dust, as the carmaker is planning the introduction of the new 9-Series.

As expected, the 2018 6-Series will stand on BMW`s new CLAR platform, highlighting a new and sleeker design, more dynamic roofline, shallower glasshouse, adding C-pillar behind the rear wheels, all that offering the new model an Aston Martin-like design look.

The CLAR platform will also allow the all-new BMW 6-Series be more lightweight with around 200 kilograms, the model also receiving optional air suspension, rear-wheel steering and a fresh-new quad-turbo inline-six engine, with around 550 horsepower.

As expected, an xDrive all-wheel version will also join the coupe, with the rear-axle taken from the 2016 BMW 7-Series. We should be able to find out more information on the upcoming BMW 6-Series in the upcoming period.
