The BMW Gran Coupe certainly ended up being the hottest news of the Beijing Motor show. First BMW announced Gran Coupe (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=450754) and the next thing we know the rumors of production are flying. As previously reported the last new was that the Gran Coupe was going into production as an 8 Series (http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=451433). The latest rumor about the Gran Coupe is that it will be going into production as a 6 series variant.

BMW Has GRAN Plans For The Upcoming 6-Series
<hr />
The BMW Gran Coupe has been approved for production, the frameless windows will remain but the car still maintains a B-Pillar for Dynamic finesse.

The BMW Gran Coupe will be marketed as the... BMW 6er Gran Coupe.
Gran Coupe brings a new segment to BMW's portfolio and will spread to include other BMW models in the Future, just like Gran Turismo will.

This will bring a portfolio of three variants to the 6er , Coupe , Gran Coupe and Cabrio.

A Shooting Brake model to accompany the Gran Coupe has been designed and built for design and market evaluation.

The BMW Concept Gran Coupe will make it's European public debut later this year at the Paris Auto Show incidentally alongside another BMW Concept Car that will debut @ Paris.

The visual details of the front and rear of the Gran Coupe will be carried over to the new 6er Coupe
