  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: Rumor: BMW M2 Could Gain Two More Doors as a “Gran Coupe”

Recommended Posts

BMWM2GranCoupe
-Rumors that BMW will build a sedan version of the 2-series have been swirling ever since Germany’s Auto Motor und Sport reported that BMW’s head of development, Klaus Fröhlich, was pushing for one. And if BMW builds a 2-series Gran Coupe, it is likely also to build an M2 Gran Coupe.

-

U.K. publication Autocar believes that not only is the 2-series Gran Coupe happening, but an M version is definitely happening, too. That would mean you could have an M2 with its 365-hp engine and also two more doors. Potentially, it could even come with a hatchback as well.

-

All versions of the 2-series Gran Coupe reportedly will receive an extended wheelbase, slotting Gran Coupe somewhere between the regular 2-series coupe and the 3-series sedan. Supposedly, the Gran Coupe— both versions—would hit showrooms in 2019.

-

Late last year, BMW showed the Concept Sedan Concept at China’s Guangzhou Auto Show, which previewed a Mini-based sedan with front-wheel drive. But according to AutoCar, that model will be exclusive to the Chinese market, leaving room for a 2-series-based four-door to be sold elsewhere.

The biggest question we have, however, is whether such a car would ever make it to the United States. Offering a 2-series Gran Coupe here would finally give BMW a competitor for the Mercedes-Benz CLA and the Audi A3, but the risk of cannibalizing sales of the 3-series could keep it out.
