Now that the 4 Series Coupe has been revealed and the Convertible nears its debut, the next model in the lineup – the 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36), has re-emerged in testing, after a nearly 6 month hiatus since our last spotting. It has re-emerged with Eric Bana doing the testing and with less camouflage than ever – shedding the heavy camouflage from its front and rear (that’s not really Eric Bana).
What’s revealed is what was expected – a Gran Coupe styled 4 Series which effectively shares the same exterior styling as the Coupe, but with an elongated roofline and an extra pair of doors. The interior will also be shared with the other 4 Series models [previous spy pics].
The 4 Series Gran Coupe will … CONTINUED

The first 4 Series model has been revealed in the form of the 4 Series Coupe and it will eventually be joined by the Convertible and a 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) variant.
The Coupe begins production this July, while the Convertible begins later this year in November. The 4 Series Gran Coupe will debut next year, with production possibly by late 2014 – early 2015.
With the reveal of the 4 Series Coupe, some digital artists have taken to photoshop for some new Gran Coupe renders. As you can see from the renders and spy photos below, the 4 Series Gran Coupe, like the 6 Series Gran Coupe, will be a 4-door version of the Coupe model and feature a … CONTINUED
We have added some additional info and pages from the dealer order guide for the BMW 4 Series Coupe, showing samples of the available paint, wheel, upholstery and interior trim.
Testing and development of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) continues, with the prototypes undergoing cold weather testing in Sweden.
As always, don’t worry about the headlights and tail lights of the prototypes at this stage of testing. They are merely fakes for testing purposes. Expect the 4GC to share the lights with the rest of the upcoming 4 Series lineup.
Codenamed as the F36, the 4 Series Gran Coupe will be positioned and priced in the 3/4 Series lineup just as the 6 Series Gran Coupe is positioned in the 5/6 Series lineup (in between the coupe and convertible models). [See our recent article previewing the future 4 Series / M4 lineup].
Like the 6 Series Gran Coupe, the 4 Series Gran Coupe combines the convenience … CONTINUED
Part 2 of the 2012 Year in Review from BMW, revisiting this past year’s concepts, designs, and historical moments.
Here are some updated 4 Series Gran Coupe renders, taking a more technical approach to predicting what it will look like by matching scale, sizing, lines, and shapes to those seen in our previously posted spy photographs.
Now that we know the general look of the upcoming 4 Series Coupe (from the revealed concept model), we can also take a better guess at what the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) model may look like.
BIMMERPOST member philip has put together this render for us, based off the 4 Series Coupe Concept.
As with the 6 Series Gran Coupe (to the 6 Series Coupe), we can expect the 4 Series Gran Coupe to share the head and tail lights with the rest of the upcoming 4 Series lineup. Codenamed as the F36, the 4 Series Gran Coupe will be positioned and priced in the 3/4 Series lineup just as the 6 Series Gran Coupe is positioned in the 5/6 Series lineup (in between the … CONTINUED
Our latest spy photos of the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) may not reveal anything new for the exterior [see past spy photos] , but this is the first look at the F36′s interior.
And it looks just like the F30 3 Series interior. But, what’s new is the presence of the iDrive Touch controller. This comes as no surprise as BMW has already announced details for a touch sensitive iDrive controller knob and it’s been previously seen on the 2014 BMW X5 (F15) prototype. The iDrive Touch system will debut with the next X5 in Fall 2013 as that comes before the 4 Series Gran Coupe’s expected debut in 2014.
Inside is some official information on the upcoming iDrive Touch system and a video demonstration.
