Not enough market demand for a larger/heavier SAV then the current X5. BMW cancelled the X7 program years ago.

Current BMW developent is "full court press" on the "i" car program

Yes, but demand in the Chinese market seems to have revived the interest in bigger SUVs and I've read that BMW is seriously considering building the X7 again.

The X7 was first stated to be a 2014 model (BMW has not released any revised release date that I am aware of).

BMW produced a computer generated image of the 2014 X7 (see below, The BMW image is so old it's got the "milk moustache" grille from almost 10yrs ago!).

A few 2014 X5 in cloaking garb were snapped during testing over 2 yrs ago. These "spy shots" were identified as the new X7 by auto mags/autoblogs/autogossip in need of filling pages, they ran with the story "BMW X7 is a go". They usually state something along the lines of "BMW sources close to our mag/autoblog/autogossip say the X7 is a go", Popular Mechanics mag has taken this crap to art form levels, according to them we were supposed to have flying cars over 50 yrs ago.

Where have you been reading that BMW is "considering building the X7"? I think you may be drinking the autogossip coolaid.

That is not a BMW generated image. That is a very old photochop by some chopper from previous gen 6 series and pre LCI E90 3-series time.

The X7 will be based off the 2015 G11 7-series which in turn will have the Gran Lusso coupe elements. Below is the latest CGI by Autobild who writes that it will come in 2018
