We already know that beginning with the next-generation 3-Series , the coupe and the convertible versions will no longer be offered as a 3-Series model. Instead, BMW will add a new model to its lineup known as the 4-Series .
We are all eagerly anticipating a production version of the 4-Series to show up soon, but BMW will start off with a little teasing, as it will first release a concept model. The 4-Series concept will make its world debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show and BMW has just released the first official details of the upcoming concept.
The new 4-Series will take its design inspiration from the 6-Series Coupe and it will offer "greater sportiness, greater exclusivity and even clearer differentiation" from the 3-Series. It will also be longer and feature a lowered roof line.
BMW offered no details on the engine lineup just yet, but the production version will be offered with the same engine lineup as the 3-Series sedan.
Update 12/7/2012: BMW has just launched a video outlining the all-new BMW 4-Series Concept with higher ups at Bimmer talking about the improvements of the new Coupe.
UPDATE 02/18/13: Leave it to BMW to leave us dumbfounded about a new promo video for the new BMW 4-Series Coupe. It’s in German, which we don’t really understand, but a quick browse through Google Translate seems to suggest that the promo video is saying the that the 4-Series Coupe is "the Ultimate Driving Machine". And who are we to disagree. Check out the video by clicking on the photo above.
