Of course, this also has M Division implications, as the M6 Coupe (here's a review of the now-old model), M6 Cabriolet and M6 Gran Coupe will be replaced by the corresponding 8 Series models.
Well, the Internet can never leave such things alone, which is how we ended up with the rendering above. The pixel play portrays an M6 Coupe, with this being built starting from the 2018 M5.
And while the big performance coup in the image looks appealing, we have to admit that there's simply no place for such a model in the BMW lineup.
Even so, with the interior space of the new BMW 3 Series being similar to that of the car it replaces, we're not expecting the future 4 Series to offer greater cabin room.
And with the 8er being larger than the 6 Series, the cabin space gap between the future M4 and the upcoming M8 is obviously greater than the one separating the retiring M4 and the outgoing M6.
There is one M model that could fit in showrooms, though, and that is the hypothetical Z4 M, a range-topper that the company has denied so far. Note that the spiciest model to date is the Z4 M40i.
The Germans quote the lack of proper demand when talking about the matter, but with such decisions having been reversed in the past, we might receive the M toy after all.
My latest edit, an M6 concept based on the 5 Series, this was very highly requested for me to make! @ Want an edit on your car, DM me. #Bmw #M6 #BmwM6 #M6Coupe #G32 #G33 #BmwLife #SupercarsOfLondon #BHP #Spec #650i #6Series #Bmw6Series #G30 #550i #F90 #BmwM5 #M5 #540i #5Series #F92 #F93 #F90M5 #340i #G20 #BmwM3 #BmwM4 #F82 #CarThrottle
