Whistle BMW group future line-up

Here's a brief summary of future models in BMW group's line-up. Thanks to Scott for info.

MINI - We have alrady heard of Mini Clubman, also coming are MINI AWD, MINI coupe and MINI sedan.

1-series coupe and cabrio. 1-series bridges gap between top-of-line MINI and 3-series in US. Initially only Coupe and Cabrio models will be available in the North American/Canadian market there is no plans to introduce the 3dr or 5dr model to these markets

3-series: facelift + M3 sedan and Convertible

5- series: Facelift E60 production started this month. Coupish shape F10 coming in late 2010

6-series facelift in fall 2007

7-series - F01 in early 2009

M- series
All future M cars in Coupe form will feature the Reinforced Carbon Fiber Roof and additional CSL model for more hardcore performance and dynamics. BMW M is to become the pinnacle for BMW's "Efficient Dynamics" program in the greater flexibility of utilizing lightweight materials , body panels and cutting edge technology to become the most efficient and dynamic cars in it's segment.


The X6-M again as this is a Coupe model a Carbon Fibre Roof will feature strongly in it's weight saving plan. Expected to be powered by an upgraded V10 engine BMW will position the X6-M right into the bowels of performance Coupe owners with families and the need for luggage space. Although the sloping coupe roof line of the X6 suggests headroom is not going to be class leading their will be space for four. The dash design will be similar to owners of the X5 but be more upright and driver orientated.




M1 - based on the 1er Coupe using a new six cylinder engine expected to deliver round about 350 HP.


M3 M3 coupe, cabrio and sedan with CSL versions.
M5 E60 gets a minor facelift.


M6 CSL coming soon.



X-series
X6 is next in line for addition to X-series.The X6 is radical because it has been developed as a performance car. Xdrive and additional driver aids will be promoted for the X6 as for more control. Technology being introduced in the X6 will make this stand out by offering road orientated performance and dynamics.


X4 - A small mid size X4 will sit above the next X3 which becomes more sport orientated and dynamic looking with sloped back roof and shallow glass area - It will still look like a SAV but will be more dynamic looking than today's X3.







X1 Based on 1-series, X1 will come after the X4.





F-series
F5, F3, F1 - With the F5 known internally as RFK , the F3 known internally as "Coupe Space" and the F1 known as CSV or Compact Sport Vehicle. Of these projects F5 will arrive first and will be positioned above the 5er Touring.

BMW are aiming the F5 at the European market and differentiating the F5 from the R-class in not only looks but promising true car like dynamics and handling with the latest high performance engines BMW have to offer.

The RFK will also be the first BMW to incorporate "Suicide doors" The F5 will be offered with 5 seats initially - The rear packaging is the most interesting feature which features a centralized rear seats forward from the individual rear seats . BMW will also offer a seven seat option similar to the X5 and intended for child use only. Given the sole demographic BMW are aiming for the RFK will be the first non M-BMW to offer a Carbon fiber roof the results this brings to the F5 keeping the weight and the car's center of gravity down is nothing short of appealing.

The RFK will be part of the four vehicles BMW are developing to bridge the gap to Rolls-Royce. Along with the RFK, There will be the Z10 Roadster and the next 7er and BMW's exciting four door Coupe the Z9.




Z-series

In addition to Z2 and Z4, BMW will have a competitor for Porsche's Panamera and Aston Martin's Rapide.
The Z9 will be based on architecture and platform modules from the next 6er Coupe and the next 7-series. The Z9 is aiming right at the Panamera by offering a strong four door Coupe shape with strong sloping roof line and short rear deck. Z9 will be the Flagship for BMW in style, performance , luxury and dynamics, Uniquely for this car it will receive a four suicide-door set up with hidden rear handles and entry points located internally. Space will be limited to four and the interiors will be prepared by BMW's "Individual" program. The Z9 will basically be a Coupe version of the Z10 Roadster which will feature a folding hardtop roof using Painted Carbon Fibre.

Both cars share the same front end and rear end styling with a very wide kidney grille, small aggressive shaped lights and the rear with wrap around lights similar to the California Spyder project - Z10 and Z9 will bridge BMW to Rolls-Royce.
Huckfeldt's Pchop.






Rolls-Royce
There will be baby RR to bridge gap between BMW to RR named -Seraph.

Here is a not so accurate Pchop:

I like the X4/X1 talk...
hope it's not cheap talk or, too expensive and
shows up before the end of the decade.

And, in a diesel opt., too.

The X6 is sounding like $70Gs+ in a NY minute.

Thats odd, don't you think that would be quite an early refresh? Especially because the 2008 3 convertable is already out, I don't want to get a car that is about to be outdated hmm
I'm going off E46
-1999 (into)
-2000 (coupe and convertable)
-2001 (new engines)
-2002 (facelift)
I suppose the new engines DID come for 2007, that just seems quite premature

As I said its a rumor for now, because they want to have the new BER and other associated features included. Although I still believe that it will be with 2009 MY.
