Before we begin this article, we’d like to point out one thing. Word on the street (for quite some time) has been that BMW plans on changing its nomenclature for the next 3-Series Coupe and will call it the 4-Series.
While many media outlets admit that BMW has never confirmed such a move, we’ve asked BMW on numerous occasions if that was what the company was planning. The answer we always received was that the 3-Series badge is so important to the company and that giving the next-generation of the coupe the 4-Series badge has never been discussed.
Either way, new reports suggest that the next-generation BMW 3-Series Coupe will make it world debut at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show in January.
The model will make its debut in concept form at the show and will enter production later that year.
