The 2012 F30 3-series sedan has finally dropped its heavy camouflage to reveal a handsome and evolutionary design from the current E90 3-series sedan!

As expected, the F30 3-series retains its sporty and squat design, with short overhangs and wheels pushed to the corners. However, the front end adopts BMWs current design language, with a sleeker sloping front fascia with widened kidney grilles. The rear lights remain classic L-shapes and the car retains the prominent character line throughout its doors.

The F30 3-series sedan is expected to be … CONTINUED

Here is a new rumor regarding the next generation F30/F32 M3′s powerplant – that a 3.3L V6 tri-turbo motor is a possibility! One turbo would power the motor generally, and the other two turbos would each be dedicated to 3-cylinders each.

Here are some of the clearest shots yet of the F34 3-series GT in testing, from some different perspectives than we’ve previously posted. We must say, the F34 GT looks much better in motion than at standstill.

Here are a couple new photos of the F34 3-series GT in testing runs on the streets. The 3-series GT will offer a simple hatch function rather than the twin trunk arrangement on the 5er GT. Spotted here is a 6 cylinder turbo version (335i or 335d).

We’re excited to bring you the first spy photos of the 3-series Gran Turismo (GT) which will be released with the next generation of 3-series vehicles. With a sleek trunkline and frameless windows, the 3-series GT looks to be much lower and sleeker in shape than the 5-series GT and appears to be generally sportier in nature. The 3-series GT will offer a simple hatch function rather than the twin trunk arrangement on the 5er GT. Spotted here is a 6 cylinder turbo version (335i or … CONTINUED

While BMW continues development of the new F30 3-series set to debut in Spring 2012, German Auto Motor und Sport now reports about an interesting rumor: BMW is said to expand their lineup with a 4-door coupe based on the F30 platform. Internally called F36, BMW seems to consider 4-series for the name of this model. According to AMS, BMW is currently working on a first design model to showcase the car internally. Compared to the F30, the 4er is said to be 4cm or … CONTINUED

These are the first pictures of a early hybrid prototype for the next generation 3 series from BMW, as indicated by the “Rescue” stickers on its doors (which has been present on past hybrid BMW test vehicles).

The F30 3-series will be the first 3-series hybrid from BMW and will adopt much of the technology from the upcoming hybrid F10 5-series. The F30 hybrid will be released some time after the diesel and petrol F30 versions are released next year.

Besides serving as proof of an upcoming F30 … CONTINUED

It appears that one of the BMW Vision Efficientdynamics car’s more overt and distinguishing design features – the squared-off angel eye lights, will appear on the upcoming F30 3-series. This is the first we have seen this angel eyes design on a production BMW.

We first began seeing the squared-off angel eye lights on the VED concept car, a design concept which flowed down in less radical form to subsequent concept cars such as the Gran Coupe Concept and the 6-series Coupe Concept (all pictured below). … CONTINUED

On the heels of Jaguar revealing its aspirations for a potential F30 3-series fighter, Hyundai’s CEO is now also dropping hints about a potential F30 competitor. John Krafcik recently said to Automotive News that “The Genesis Coupe is in the same segment, really, as the 3-series coupe” and “One of the things we’re thinking is: Should we do something that’s a sedan version of that?”

If it came to fruition, the Genesis sports sedan would share the same RWD platform now used for the Genesis sedan and … CONTINUED

In an interview with Automotive News, Jaguar’s global brand director, Adrian Hallmark, lets known that the UK automotive company is currently considering bringing a small sedan to market. This new sedan would slot in under the Jaguar XF and compete directly against the F30 3-series or the Audi A4/A5.

The last time Jaguar introduced a smaller sedan with lower pricing to take on the 3-series was with the Ford Mondeo based X-type, which had little success in the competitive compact sports sedan segment.

But, Jaguar may be ready … CONTINUED

We bring you the most revealing photos yet of the upcoming 2012 3-series (F30)! Until now, the F30 has been fully cladded with little showing other than its general lines, shape, stance, and proportions.

The tail lights have now also been partially unveiled, showing a wrap around design featuring upsweeping light bars, LED indicators, and regular brake lights.

The production rear bumper has now also been installed … CONTINUED
