Here are the first live photos of the BMW Gran Coupe Concept from the Beijing unveiling. The concept is reportedly already green lighted for production and will become the 6-series Gran Coupe, a low slung 4-door “coupe” to take on the likes of the Mercedes CLS and Audi A7.
We’ve been given some very strong hints that the front and rear design of the just unveiled stunning BMW Gran Coupe Concept signals the design of the upcoming F12 6-series coupe. Our resident photoshop guru Gerald Alvarez has wasted no time in rendering a 6-series coupe based on this knowledge.
BMW insider has revealed that the BMW Concept Gran Coupe has already been approved for production as the 6-series Gran Coupe. The new 6-series line will thus have 3 variants – the coupe, Gran Coupe, and convertible. A shooting brake model concept has also been built for evaluation. The BMW Concept Gran Coupe will make its debut at the 2010 Paris auto show.

We previously reported on jpsimon’s turbo upgrade on his 335′s N54 motor. The upgrade to larger compressor and clipped turbine wheel is now complete and the performance increases have been documented. The peak gains were an impressive 40awhp/50awtq on pump gas. Full details and dyno inside.
Here is Autoexpress’ latest interpretation of what the 2012 F30 3-series will resemble. They believe that it will be a mix of influences from the CS Concept and 5-series. What do you think of this look?
BMW has announced that its all-electric “Megacity Vehicle” line will launc in 2013.

Heres a nice initial overview of the 2011 335is experience from our friends at BIMMERFILE
For all 335is info and media, see our OFFICIAL 335is INFO THREAD.
Heres a thought; the 335is is more of a replacement for et E46 M3 than the current M3. Its got similar power (320 hp) with decidedly more torque (332 ft-lbs) for performance that is equal if not better than the previous M3. Its powered by a six cylinder powerplant like the M3 (albeit turbocharged) and weighs about the same (i.e. about 200 lb. less than the current M3).
