The German auto manufacturers seem hell bent on building a vehicle for every possible niche, and even willing to create a few niches of their own to introduce new products for new segments. The latest rumor has BMW building a new MPV-like people mover that is essentially a premium tall wagon, similar to the Mercedes R-Class. We had pics of a mule for what we were calling the V-Series a couple of weeks ago, but here's a rendering by that's said to preview the look of the finished product.

BMW is actually rumored to be working on two new models based on the 3- and 5-series platforms. These new models will introduce a new "F" moniker into the BMW lexicon and be called the F3 and F5. They will join a BMW lineup that's currently swelling with upcoming new models that have yet to arrive.
