The rumours surrounding a future top-shelf coupe from BMW under the ‘9 Series’ banner refuse to die, and reports out of Europe suggest the new model is still on the carmaker’s radar.
German magazine AutoZeitung has raised the issue again, saying BMW is giving the idea of a future production version of the Vision Future Luxury Concept serious consideration.
Unveiled at last year’s Beijing Auto Show, the Vision Future Luxury followed the Gran Lusso concept which also gave rise to a future 8 or 9 Series coupe from BMW.
Parts of the Vision Future Luxury’s interior could also carry-over into a new 9 Series, including its four-seat layout.
Engine options may consist of a turbocharged 4.4 litre petrol V8 along with six-cylinder diesel and petrol units, while a powered-up hybrid or plug-in hybrid version is also a possibility.
The new model would also give BMW a more direct competitor to the Mercedes-Benz S-Class Coupe.
While BMW is yet to confirm any production plans for a future flagship coupe model, the carmaker isn’t exactly watering-down the idea either.
