We've spied most of the 2014 F32 4 series coupe exposed as BMW was loading a per-production model onto a truck. It is now time to put the E92 3 series coupe up against it successor the F32 4 series coupe. Based on the above picture which BMW would you drive home?

If you're confused about the 4 series naming it is alright, but where have you been for the last 6 months? BMW will no longer be making a 3 series coupe, remaining the E92 successor, chassis code F32 to a 4 series. This allows them to take the 4 series up market in terms of pricing while leaving their bread and butter, the 3 series sedan alone.

Flip over to the F30/F31/F32/F33 forum thread on the F32 for more details.

In other words, they're doing with the E92 the same thing they did with the 5 coupe, they call it a 6 series and charge more. Brilliant.

I can't vote until I see more pics. The fender scoop* could work, or just look like an affectation so long eschewed by BMW.

* It looked good on my '66 Mustang, but that had three strakes on it and looked sharp.
