BMW’s 3-Series has made its way into the hearts of all Beamer lovers, but this next version is sure to please just about anyone who craves a luxury vehicle with insurmountable excellence. And if you don’t believe us, check out this rendering provided by designer, Andrei Avarvarii.

The 2012 BMW 3-Series Coupe is said to be longer than the current version by around an inch and a half, but it will have considerably shorter overhangs. Its design elements will be borrowed from brethren such as the next-generation X3, the new 5-Series, and the new 7-Series.

Power for the 3-Series should come from a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and, quite possibly, an inline six-cylinder as well. A hybrid and a diesel version may also be up for grabs when the time is right. What we can be absolutely sure of is that the next 2012 BMW 3-Series will feature Vision Efficient Dynamics technology.

All we have to say is that theMercedes C-Class, the Audi A4, and the Cadillac CTS better watch their step; this BMW 3-Series is packing some serious punch.

I love my 335I, but it weighs a portly 3600 pounds, that is minivan territory. Work on the weight, and you can improve mileage and already great performance.

You can tell the window between C and D ar is bigger in line with the newer 7 series, as well as a taller Hoffmeister kink. The rest is pretty well-concealed.
