Do you have an artist's guess as to what it would look like?

A very rough guess/CGI. Does not match the mule.

What's the target market?

We've got a 3 and 5 Series Touring; AND the X3, X5, and X6.

Why develop an oversized 5 Series Touring?

People mover. Those who want more room, but not head room. I believe it was called RFK(Raumfunktionales Konzept or
Spacefunctional concept) initially at Panke's time.
Here's Huckfeldt's guess and he is usually good.

BMW's latest model has been caught for the second time this week in Munich undergoing initial road tests. Still heavily disguised, the BMW V series will be taking on the Mercedes R-Class which has not been met with great enthusiasm. BMW seems to have drawn their own conclusion from Mercedes' experience and have designed not so much a van-like car but rather a sportier and more luxurious middle class family hatchback.

The newcomer is based on the future 5 series platform which allows BMW to spread both production and development costs. Currently the project name is V-Series, but we expect a more fitting title for the car by the time it will make its first curtain call by the end of next year. Power is expected to come from 3.0 liter six-cylinder engines delivering 272 hp (petrol), 286 hp (twinturbo diesel) and 231 hp (turbo diesel). A top of the line model could be powered by the future direct-injection V8 delivering 420 hp.

No wonder BMW prices are moving up up up...they have to pay for all this R&D

R&D is shared. F5 is based on next gen 5-series where X5 also shares the R&D. BMW is trying to make the most of R&D efforts. They are the leader in luxury market and leading in prices.
