At a recent press drive I had the chance to thoroughly look over the all-new BMW 3-Series GT.
And, I drove the soon-to-be-at-showrooms 328 GT xDrive and 335 GT xDrive.
Since inception, and the retrospective disaster that was the 5-Series GT, folks have been pretty hands off about this product. It's controversial and, frankly, its looks are not appealing to many.
So when I heard about an upcoming 4-Series Gran Coupe I was floored. While the 6-Series GC didn't look so coupelike, I will be the first to admit it is a gorgeous looking product at the end of the day. Theoretically, the 4 GC should follow suit, right?
Well, after seeing the latest spy images I am not so sure. That's because the 4-Series Gran Coupe looks pretty close to the 3-Series GT. Sure the hatch is designed differently but it's B-Pillar is REALLY bulbous looking and not slinky at all.
A four-door coupe is suppose to be impractical but sexy, like a G-string. It's not supposed to look like a fat chick's thong.
That said, I just have to ask: is the BMW 4-Series Gran Coupe's DESIGN TOO close for comfort with the 3-Series GT?
