New BMW 2 Series Coupe Render

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
** Keep in mind though that this is just a render and Scott26 has said that the 2-series coupe will get a significantly different look, especially the front end. This render is just a F20 1 series chopped in coupe version, with no other changes.

There will be no next gen 1 series coupe/convertible. They'll be badged the "2 series" instead.

Drop in the N55, and you will have a beast like the 135i.

Definitely an improvement over the hatch. Those headlights are still hideous but somehow the whole looks a lot better.

Blue looks like a classy 2.... White render looks a little more M inspired. View from the side in red is ok also.

You know, if the profile looks like that, it'll be ok. Once they get rid of the fugly front end, I don't think it'll be too ugly, albeit, there are some korean econo cars that may still look better.

It looks somewhat better than the 1-series from the angle of the first render. I'm glad to hear that the 2-series will have a significantly different look. I don't think I could live with that front end.

Nice renders. I like the white one best. Its lines seem to flow the best.

The blue render isn't bad... but the mid section looks too 3er(nee 4er now!). lol

You left out the Van! and X cars and Z cars... Z2, Z4, Z6. AND the new XZ cars (cross betwen the Z4 and X4) planned. lol


BMW needs to get back to basics and stop trying to be "all things to all people". Pretty soon they will be taken over IF this (design) crap keeps up.

The white one looks pretty nice. The headlights are way sharper than 1 Series. The distance between the headlights and the kidney grille is also shorter. Hopefully it will look like that.

Regardless of what it looks like, the 2///M will be what the ///M3 used to be, and this from a ///M3 owner.

I think if they do it right, many of us who own ///M3s will switch to the ////2M or whatever they call it because it will be lighter and probably a GREAT track car.

Cheers,

well there will be
1,2,3,4,5,6,7...
and various grand coupes of those
then X1,X3,X4,X5,X6...
then Z2, Z4...
basically leave no hole unplugged

i'm just awaiting patiently when they run out of numbers and they want to squeeze models in between so we have the 1.5 and 2.5 etc



and i also found a gaping hole they are not fulfilling ...yet
check out the Hyundai Veloster
2 doors on one side, and one door on the other
can't believe this slipped by the BMW Marketing men
