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.

2 Series Convertible Renderings

It's only a matter of time until we see a convertible version of the 2 Series Coupe. Here are a couple renderings from TheophilusChin, to give an idea of what it could look like. Who would like one of these?

I would!

I hope they change some things in the interior. Mainly the ability to have one cupholders in use in the center console with the nav system with the arm rest down.

I might consider it in the M Sport trim, or better yet, M2.

The rendered car itself looks good, but that's a horrible choice of wheel.They don't match the lines of the car at all.

Re: 2 Series Convertible Renderings

Folding hard top needs to be an option....Chrysler even does that.

...and that's the bottom line

Uh, no. Ragtop is cheaper, weighs less, takes up less trunk space.

Why would you want a complicated clunky folding hardtop? Because you think it looks better? A ragtop looks every bit as good (at least when it's down!)

Yeah, your opinion isn't shared by many.

Actually his opinion is shared by quite a few. If you are truely interested in a convertible then the soft top is by far the best option. When the top is down all of the advantages are for the rag top - less weight, room in the truck for golf clubs, lower cost....If you can't keep your clubs in the trunk and have the top down then what's the point.

When the top is up the analysis is fairly even. Some argue the hard top is safer and more secure although the advantage is minimal. With roll over protection the soft top is just as safe, and a thief will break the window to steal your stuff regardless of the roof. Modern soft roofs are quiet enough and just as warm. Also, the addtional wieght is not only detrimental, it changes the dynamics of the car when the top is up or down. With a low weight rag top you don't even notice.

For anyone that wants a hardtop I'd say buy the coupe. For a vert the softy is the only choice.

Agree, the top is down on my car most of the time anyway.
