These are the best spy photos yet of the upcoming 6-series convertible! Save for a few pieces of not very disguising tape, the production 6-series cabrio comes into view. The cloth hardtop remains on this 650i convertible (but we’ve been told that a hardtop option will be available).
We bring you the first sighting of the next generation 6-series coupe (F12) testing on the Nurburgring. The last coupe sightings were back in April and only F13 convertibles have been spotted since. This comes as no surprise as the coupe is scheduled for production a few months after the start of convertible production.
Judging by the exhaust and premium sport wheels, this appears to be a 650i coupe.
Here is the BMW announced production schedule for the F12 / F13 6-series coupe and convertible.
March 2011 – 650cv
July 2011 – 650cp
September 2011 – 640cp/cv
September 2011 – 650xi cp/cv

The upcoming 6-series has been one of the most frequently spied future BMWs as it’s one of the BMW models that will be revealed in the next few months (Winter of 2010/2011). This is the first time a blue convertible has been spotted and also some of the best photos yet of the grill/duct work of the front bumper. The profile shot shows off the incredibly sleek silhouette that the F13 6-series convertible will have.

We bring you photos of the F13 6-series convertible sporting a tan color soft top for the first time. We have not yet seen confirmation of the soft top colors to be available on the upcoming F13. If this tan top is one of those colors, it certainly matches Milano Beige (as pictured), but were not sure it will work well with other exterior colors.
The soon to be outgoing 2010 6-series convertible is currently available in a black or gray soft stop.
We bring you the first photos of the F13 6-series convertible confirming that the 2012 6-series convertible will indeed have a traditional folding soft top (but a factory fitted optional hardtop will be available). These 650 convertible photos are also the most revealing yet of the body, which loses its plastic camoflage cladding to reveal most of the production body. What’s being revealed slowly is a stunning looking BMW which retains the shape and sleekness of the previous 6-series cabrio, while losing some of its more criticized design.
The current BMW monthly production bulletin reveals some details on the new 6-series (F12/F13) and the upcoming X3. Production starts on the 650 convertible in March 2011 and 650 coupe in July 2011. Sept. will see a 6-cylinder 640 coupe and convertible and 650xi coupe and convertible. X3 production begins this December.
We bring you the first ever sighting of the upcoming F13 6-series convertible with its top down. The shape revealed with the top down is of a sleek and well proportioned convertible, not easily pulled off with a convertible of this size. What is not telling yet however, is whether the top is a folding hardtop or a traditional canvas top. The extra cut lines on the trunk may indicate a canvas top to some, but may simply be indicative of split trunk access (for when top is retracted).
Release dates and specifics are still up in the air, but its a sure bet that at least the engine line-up will be a replication of what is available on … CONTINUED
