BMW 8-Series Gran Coupe Rumored To Arrive In 2019

The BMW 8-Series is finally returning to the brand’s lineup and a new report is suggesting the coupe and convertible variants will eventually be joined by a stylish Gran Coupe.

According to BMW Blog, the German automaker will introduce the 8-Series coupe next summer and it will be followed by a convertible variant later in the year. Several months later, the company will reportedly introduce the 8-Series Gran Coupe in the third quarter of 2019.

Nothing is official, but the report isn’t terribly surprising as 8-Series will replace the previous 6-Series lineup which consisted of coupe, convertible, and gran coupe models. However, the 6-Series will live on in the form of the 6-Series GT.

Little is known about the 8-Series Gran Coupe but it will likely follow in the footsteps of the 6-Series Gran Coupe and adopt a stylish exterior with a low roofline and two rear doors.

Like the standard model, the 8-Series Gran Coupe is expected to be offered with a variety of different engines including a 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder and a 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8. There could also be a high-performance M8 Gran Coupe with a 4.4-liter M TwinPower Turbo V8 that produces at least 600 PS (441 kW) and 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) of torque.

    I love what I saw from BMW on their latest concepts 8 series and Z4. Maybe it’s the beginning of a new design revolution at BMW ?

    It would be great if they introduced totally new design elements to revive the spirit of the iconic 8 Series.. but let’s be honest- they probably won’t. With that being said I still don’t think a 2 door 7 series would be all that bad though..

      That’s what the 8 series should have been, a 7 series coupe, not a replacement for the 6 series range.

  • THE 8 SERIES WAS A SPECIAL CAR. IT SEEMS THEY’RE GONNA MILK THIS ONE WITH A 4 DOOR “COUPE”.
    A SHOOTING BREAK AND SUV ARE SURE TO FOLLOW. HARDLY EXCLUSIVE JUST ANOTHER MODEL LINE TO TRY AND DISTINGUISH FROM THE CROWD.

    Considering the 6 Series GC is the best looking model in BMW’s current range, I’m glad they are doing this.
