Despite the increased awareness about global warming, the automotive industry continues to venture into various niches. BMW will boost its 6-Series lineup with four different vehicles -- the Coupe, the Cabrio, the Grand Coupe, and the shooting brake.
An Autoexpress report quoted BMW's product development manager Dr Klaus Draeger to have said that the company is considering building the car.
The source said that it could make its public debut in October at the Paris Motor Show. This vehicle will be based on the Gran Coupe four-door concept that was displayed at the Beijing Motor Show a few months ago.
It's expected that the upcoming BMW 6-Series Shooting Brake will offer the same engine range as the other versions of the 6 Series.
What this indicates is that engine options include the 3.0 liter six-cylinder petrol and diesel units, as well as the range-topping turbocharged 4.4 liter V8 powerplant.
With BMW's announcement that it aims to introduce these niche versions of the 6 Series, it's apparent that the "classic" Coupe and Cabrio models will have conventional designs.
In an effort to be more precise, the two versions will not have drastic changes when compared to the current generation. The shape of the models will be the same but they will have new details.
