F26 X4: CGIs and spy shots
 
Bad chop
http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com/wp-...ttac_01_01.jpg

We kick off the week with my rendering of the future BMW kid-SAC (Sports Activity Coupe), the X4. BMW gave away their intentions to build this thing back in 2001, when they served us the first dish cooked with their new flame surfacing baking technique. Chief Chef Chris Bangle's concept blended concave and convex aluminum surfaces in an "interesting" asymmetrical design.

The hottest feature of the car: access to the back seats via the reverse opening “hayon”. (Un)fortunately we won’t be seeing such a fancy/expensive/cool-but-unpractical solution on a production car soon– just as we didn’t get to see the dual wing doors from the Z9 Granturismo on any of the 6 Series models. However, some of the design elements of the X Coupe were really nice and able to survive the marketing/production battle. Anyway, I envision the X4 as an X Coupe with a slightly larger passenger compartment, less sharp edges (concave-convex shape blending accidents), some plastic (scratch-proof) elements in the lower part and an X6 gene transplant– just so we can be sure that the newcomer is a member of BMW's ever-burgeoning family of niche products. In fact, one wonders what else they could possibly have in store.

Just as ugly as the GLK is. Sorry. Let's hope it's much more attractive thin this chop. :P

It will be a 4-door Sports Activity Sedan- SAS. More like the Audi allroad.

I said I would periodically post pic's of the BMW Plant expansion.The construction hit a milestone this week.The 1.2 Million sq/ft New Assembly Hall has started to go vertical.The big building in the background that is still under construction is the Paint Shop expansion.The 2nd Gen X3 will be added to the SC Plant in 2010 and a yet to be announced 4th "X" model will be added to the Plant in the near future.Thanks!

Dear bmw, why the hell are you overexpanding you model range to fill niche markets that will most likely canibalize your current line up? Instead of spending the r and d improving the vehicles you currently excel with. I don't like the introduction of any 1 series nor do I this kind of illogical product line expansion increases your marketing expenses and tarnishes your brands reputation.please stop this gm esque nonsense

X1 has so far been a success in Europe.
