F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Photo Realistic Rendering

BMW 2 series gran coupe

Based on the 2 Series Coupe we've spied in production sheet metal Theophilus Chin has put together this photo realistic rendering of what the 2 series Gran Coupe might look like. It shares the same front end as the M235i but two extra doors are added and the roof line stretched to make this a 2+2 coupe. If you haven't been following along this is the same trick BMW used when making the 6 Series Gran Coupe and soon to be released 4 Series Gran Coupe.

We have not spied any test mules 2 Series Gran Coupes but BMW is pushing into every segment. It make sense for them to have an Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA competitor at the dealership for prospected shoppers.

The 2 Series coupe goes into production in November and will be on sale in early 2014. BMW is probably waiting to see how sales of the 2 series coupe go before green lighting a Gran Coupe. Stay tuned, as soon as they start testing we will bring you real life pictures.

Amazing rendering by Theophilus Chin

That profile looks incredible. I really hope that BMW decides to green-light that. An M235iGC would be amazing.

According to this article the 2GC is possibly off again.

So they apparently are willing to cede the field to Audi & Merc without even offering a challenge.

With a 2 year head start both brands have a clear advantage having defined and filled a niche, and 2GC would surely steal sales from its bread and butter 3 series.

Of course, I suppose there's always the Active Tourer.............aka...........the answer to the question that nobody was asking.

I get that they don't want to cannibalize sales, but by not building a new 1 series or a 2GT they're going to basically lose sales. I wonder if the fact that the 320 exists here in the states is also driving the decision to not build a 2GT. Could they be trying to position that as the CLA and A3 fighter?

Could be just this board member's opinion, rather than policy.

I think their short-term slant is probably to pit the 320 against the A3 and CLA, and long-term the future 1/2 series variant.

The problem with the former is that it's bigger than some people want, and the latter the FWD nature of the platform.

A RWD 2GC would set BMW apart from the other two brands.

It's just a bit disconcerting that instead of being the trend setter that BMW used to be, it's now devolved into being a copycat and imitator of the competition.

They're going to end up making the 2 GC eventually, you just know it. Why they choose to wait and miss this micro-sedan popularity wave however is a mystery to me

They're probably going to deny its existence until it's close to production. They have 4 series Gran Coupes to sell.

I think the M235i could be in my future, but if that second render were available, I would get it...and I don't even really care for a sedan.

Mein Auto: '06 Sonora/Beige 330i :-)
After seeing the new A3 sedan at the NAIAS in Detroit my thought is if BMW doesn't produce a four door 1er or 2er for the U.S. market they are going to get clobbered by the A3. I like the A3 so much it tempts even me. But, a 2er Gran Coupe would absolutely kill.

Yup... completely concur. I saw the A3 in person as well and it's a really nice little car. Very impressive, though obviously the proof will be in the driving. Having said that, modern Audis already handle really well; my girlfriend's older A4 (2010) is such a lovely driving car that we tend to do our long road trips in it. Doesn't hurt that it gets better gas mileage than my M3

Going to look very seriously at the A3 in a couple of years... or maybe the S3

Mein Auto: 135 Convertible
I love my 135 vert. I would not want a coupe...if you're going to be impractical with only 2 doors, why not have a convertible??

However, looking at the 2GC rendering I'd love one of those. We're considering a 3 series as our daily driver, but if I knew BMW was going to offer the GC version of the new 2 I'd hold out till it's available.

My wife is leaning toward Audi and the new A3 is definitely worth looking at. I'm a BMW guy, but if BMW doesn't offer something to compete with the A3 I may be forced to the dark side.
