F23 BMW 2 Series Cabriolet Spyshots and Rendering

Here is what we know so far with BMW's new product lineup Series of Odd numbers like 1,3,5,7 is either a hatchback in the case of 1 Series or Sedan for the rest, and then we have the even numbers 6,4 and then there is the 2 Series which will be either a coupe or the cabriolet. The 3 and 5 Series will get a Gran Turismo, 4 and 6 series will get a Gran Coupe. Enough of that, here are some fresh spy shots of the F23 BMW 2 Series Cabriolet which is based on the 1 Series chassis... have a look inside for a gallery of spyshots and renderings we did a few months ago appears to still hold true.

The Concept Coupe EV is finished for the first time in Valencia Orange instead of the Whites and Silvers BMW i Concepts are accustomed to wearing. This concept looks much closer to the production BMW i3 with a more practical solid doors instead of the see through glass doors from the previous concepts, the coupe retains the 5 Door concept's 2570mm (101.2 inches) wheelbase, the coupe like body gives this car a much sportier, wide and low slung look.

F32 BMW 4 Series Coupe Rendering (And Spyshots)

Since there will no longer be a 3 Series Coupe and Cabriolet, the BMW 4 Series Coupe and Cabriolet will be their natural successor. The BMW 4 Series may offer a range of different engine sizes not too dissimilar to the BMW 3 Series, however there is a chance that we may see a BMW 440i or 435i if technical upgrade is made to the Twin Power Turbo inline 6 from the 335i. We have created a rendering of how the 4 Series could look like based on the spyshots seen here

A Letter from Town+Country BMW President Jim Cochrane: 

Last June I sent you an update on Phase 1 of our Building Expansion. Now I have more good news to report. 

As I write, Phase 2 is in full swing. Foundation work for our new Shop, Drive Thru and the expanded Parts 

Department is completed.  Our expectation is that all walls in these Phase 2 areas will be up and completely enclosed by mid-December.
Indeed, the entire T+C Shop should be completed by the end of April. Ready, in every way, to provide 

Customer Service with a growing list of innovations and BMW features. Ideas that will make your “coming and going” to Town+Country the most efficient BMW dealership experience of your life. After all, this new Shop will double Service Bay capacity.
You may remember that the completion of our expansion program includes major renovations to our Showroom with new ideas for our Customer Lounge, and Pre-Owned department. These last projects will get “legs” once the new Shop and Drive Thru are completed.
I share all this news with you because we are committed to the best customer after-care anywhere in the GTA Luxury car market.
Again I thank you for your support through the years. Your continued patience as we complete these last commitments means a lot to every man and woman who works here. Thank you. (More pictures inside)
