Most automotive rumors don’t make us cringe, but this latest one involving the BMW M3 caused more than just unpleasant facial expressions. Don’t get us wrong, we love hot hatchbacks, but the thought of an M3 Gran Turismo is nauseating.
According to Inside Line and M3Post, BMW may be looking to replace the M3 sedan, which never sold like the German company had hoped. So, why exactly BMW would want to use the Gran Turismo body style for the M3 is beyond us, as we can’t imagine it would garner high sales numbers.
It seems BMW has gone a bit bonkers lately and this new rumor confirms the diagnosis. We were willing to except the fact that the V8 might be on it’s way out in favor of turbocharged inline-six, but this is unacceptable.
And to confirm just how hideous of an idea this is, take a look at the rendering of the rumored vehicle provided by Inside Line.
