It is evident that the demand for coupes and even convertibles has declined over the last couple of years as people are buying more practical offerings.
BMW could be heading down a similar path to Mercedes especially if the rumour from Australian publication WhichCar is accurate.
The publication claims that the 4 Series Coupe and Convertible and the 8 Series Coupe and Convertible will not live to see another generation. Instead, the two families will apparently morph into the 6 Series lineup from 2026.
Sure the 6 Series is still around with the oddly shaped Gran Turismo offering but we think it is only a matter of time until that is phased out and an all-new 6 Series lineup is phased in.
WhichCar did not mention anything about the 4 Series Gran Coupe but did note that the 8er Gran Coupe may in the future become a member of the 7 series lineup.
As always, nothing is set in stone with these bold claims so take this report with the proverbial pinch of salt.
