Now it’s not like we can change BMW’s mind on why the BMW 3 Series Coupe should keep the ‘3’ in its name instead of the ‘4’ – but we have to admit, the concept is probably the best looking 3 Series Coupe we’ve ever seen.
The production BMW 4 Series Coupe will go on sale later this year and will be followed by the BMW M4. In the mean time, if you really want to know what the story behind the number ‘4’ is – here is BMW’s explanation.
The ’4′ doesn’t just mark the start of a new cycle, it represents the zenith of a development curve. BMW has given the new model its own individual character and a standalone design – and, in so doing, has turned ’4′ into segment shorthand for aesthetic and dynamic appeal. The latest addition to a nomenclature that sees BMW building on the fine tradition of its large BMW 6 Series and BMW 8 Series Coupes, the ’4′ stands for greater sportiness, greater exclusivity and even clearer differentiation from the BMW 3 Series range.
