Car and Driver renders the F30 3-series sedan, one of the better ones that we have seen. We’ll know soon enough as official F30 pics and details should be released by late this year, and its its world public debut just a few months later at the 2012 Geneva autoshow in March of 2012. The F32 coupe will be unveiled a year later in 2013.

The Alpina B6 based on the all new 2012 F13 coupe is imagined in even more detail in this stunning rear-view render by philip.
Harold Wood is certainly getting better and better with his renders, this time he brings the magic of Alpina to the all new 6 Series. Not only is his render spot on, but I think the classic Alpina wheels, color and aerodynamics compliment the shape of the 6 series perfectly, and I predict such a car would be an instant classic. Make sure to check this render out!!
A 1addicts member has put together some great renders of all three 1M coupe colors with some potential cosmetic modifications – black and carbon fiber grilles, black wheels, carbon fiber roof, carbon fiber hood, and carbon fiber mirror covers. Check out the great renders inside.
Mr. Sibal has really gotten a nack for getting photoshops about future BMWs correct. This is not the first time a potential M5 has been rendered, but this one is integrates a few features which the rumormill has been pointing to as likely to appear on the M6.
Namely, the highly angular quadrilateral brake vents and the integrated air curtain, which was first introduced on the 1M and may become standard fare for M models. Moving on from the front end, the front fender and door get M treatment that is more evolution of the basic 1M elements.
Comparing to recent spyphotos, the wheels seem to be 100% accurate, as is the stance and overall appearance of the car.
The next M6 is expected to make its appearance … CONTINUED
Roger Lighterness imagines what the striking BMW Vision ConnectedDrive Roadster concept would look like as a coupe. Bearing some resemblance to the late Z4 M-coupe (the hind quarters), we think it actually looks terrific!
CAR provides some new renders, details, and speculations on the upcoming baby BMW roadster, the Z2, and the 1-series GT. Both models are based on the UKL1 front-drive transverse architecture, standing for untere klasse in German. It’s at the core of BMW’s plans to become more efficient at making small cars. Power for the new UKL1 front-drive BMWs comes from three- and four-cylinder engines, spinning the front wheels, although four-wheel drive is enabled by UKL1 as it’s required for the Countryman. Getrag will build the 4wd, as well as a twin-clutch transmission.
Harold Wood aka Roger Lighterness has been sketching up and photoshopping various BMWs for some time now, and now has come out with an interesting take on the next generation MINI.
Nothing is yet known of what the next MINI will look like, with only expectations of a car that will be very new and unique.
Testament to that fact is the recent shuffle in BMW’s design department that has seen the head of BMW Exterior Design, Anders Warming move over to become director of design at MINI. Under his leadership such cars as the Z4, 5-Series and 6-Series were released, so there surely will be some very tight and beautiful design used on the next generation MINI.
For such an important figure in BMW’s design department … CONTINUED
This image is said to be a close approximation on the looks of the upcoming BMW 1-series Gran Turismo (GT). The 1-series GT will be the next Gran Turismo model in the BMW lineup following the 5-series GT and preceding the next generation 3-series Gran Turismo model.
The 1 series GT is a mixture of a 5 door hatch and a touring shape. Rear legroom is almost on par with the 5-series sedan.
