Its been only a couple of months since the 4 Series went on sale in Europe. BMW has launched only the 4 Series coupe and even the convertible version has not been announced yet. However, we already know what the 4 Series lineup is going to look like.

The 4 Series Gran Coupe, like its elder sister the 6 Gran Coupe, should feature frame-less doors.

A BMW M official said that the performance oriented M4 would be seen at the upcoming Detroit Motor Show. Already shown as a concept at the Pebble Beach concours d’elegance, BMW recently announced the technical specifications of the upcoming M4 and M3.

While it would initially be offered only as a coupe, the M4 convertible would be seen once the convertible variation of the regular 4 Series arrives (a market launch would take place next year). Following the heels of the M4 and the convertible would be the Gran Coupe that you see here, the four-door version which looks like a more premium 3 Series.

The 4 Series Gran Coupe would be the second four-door coupe in BMWs offering, the first being the 6 Series Gran Coupe which was also launched in India last year. As BMW revealed, odd-numbered cars (1,3,5,7 and X1,X3,X5) would be standard hatchbacks, sedans or crossovers/SUVs while even-numbered vehicles (upcoming 2,4,6 and the upcoming X4 and X6) would feature a coupe style.
