According to Automobile Mag, the German manufacturer BMW will introduce the BMW 9 Series Coupe in 2020. Older reports suggested that BMW hasn’t finalized the design, although it’s likely to draw design inspiration from the Vision Luxury Concept.
It’s unclear as to why the ultra luxury coupe is rumored to be called the “9 Series” given that BMW uses odd numbers for practical, sedan-style models (3-Ser, 5-Ser, 7-Ser) and even numbers for sporty coupe models (2-Ser, 4-Ser, 6-Ser). However, they did break convention when the 2 Series Active Tourer was christened.
The production 9 Series is reported to be a four-door, four-passenger coupe based on a long-wheelbase version of the 7 Series’ CLAR platform with CFRP (carbon fiber) construction. Power is likely to be sourced from the familiar 3.0-liter petrol and diesel engines, 4.4-liter V8 turbocharged unit or a hybrid powertrain.
