Does anyone recognize this BMW concept?

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I was checking USPTO website for the latest BMW's design patents and stumbled upon this weird looking BMW. I'm usually pretty up to date when it comes to BMW things, but this I've never seen before. Google doesn't show anything either. Does anyone recognize this? Designed by Juho Suh, who is a former BMW designer that now works for NEXTEV.

Not really sure myself either. Looks like his inspiration came from the CTS coupe though.

Its got that Darth Vader looking nose that haunts all Lexus products these days. Otherwise an inspiration from the latest civic sedan.

IMO it is best kept on the drawing board.

That's an old design of the possible i4 or i5 from last November. Jason had a feature on the front page of it. I seem to recall it was spotted in China as a test car from PCauto.com.cn
