While BMW is officially keeping quiet about the matter, understandably, it’s not a question if the Bavarian automaker will introduce a four-door model into the range of it's newly launched i-sub brand, but when.
Until the time comes for BMW to either inform us about its future plans or better yet, tease us with a concept model, we have a study to show you. It's called the BMW i-FD and it was created by independent industrial designer Feliciano Ruy-Díaz from Valencia, Spain.
The young designer says that the inspiration for the styling of the i-FD came from the work of renowned Spanish architect and structural engineer Santiago Calatrava as well as the forms of ancient Greek armor and the lines of a white shark.
The goal was to create a unique looking sports sedan with a design that conveys both strength and dynamism.
Díaz doesn’t tell us what kind of powertrain he had in mind while designing the i-FD, but we reckon that the sedan would probably feature a similar all-wheel-drive plug-in hybrid setup as the i8 coupe.
