If the overly contrived teaser video wasn't enough for you, there's now another image of the BMW X1 for those who care. There's not much to see in the teaser, just a very dimly lit shot of the vehicle that will slot below the pugnacious X3. A little Photoshoppery doesn't shed much more light, but it does make the profile more clear. When we finally see the X1 in Paris, it will likely resemble a stubby shrunken X5. No word on whether or not it'll drive like the supersonic aircraft that originated the moniker.

      Honey, I shrunk the X3/X5.

      The shape of a 2003 X5 and the taillights of a Dodge Journey...

      FAIL- just as bad as that X1 hip hop thing. I like hip hop but when I saw that, I'm all hell to the naw.....

      So, what's the point of this jacked up "Ultimate Driving Machine" when a 3 series wagon would likely do the same job while performing better.

      Oh, right, because the U.S. public will eat it up.

      Who knows, maybe it will turn out to be what the X3 SHOULD have been...good. I can't believe how saturated the model lineups for these German automakers is becoming, both Audi and BMW all have an SUV and a car, all priced according to size/power, neatly slotted one below the other in like 4 different categories, some with coupe or special variations. And they take just enough power/performance out of the midrange models to keep the price viable. Keep it simple! Make a big car and a little car, and make them really, really good!

      Dear BMW,

      Stop it. No more please. For as long as I can remember, I used to look up to you. Aspire to drive you, own you and track you.
      It all started with my first sight of the 3.0 CSL, and as the years went by, my lust for you only grew.

      Things have changed now, you first pull and X5 on me. Then you tell me that's not enough, so you throw an X3 my way. You further insult me with an X6 and this? An X1? Why.

      I am sorry, but I am losing faith in you. Forget about the 'average consumer' and focus on what you used to be.

      Best,
      Berto

        Bump.

        Well stated... I wholeheartedly agree.

        @jg This is autoblog, not businessblog, expect the readers to care about the cars.

        I bet they'll stop now. There's money to be made but they shouldn't do that. They should stay the tiny niche car maker and just hope things work out well.
        It's big business, people. Grow or die. If they were still a company that only made 3 cars and a motorcycle they'd have been eaten by someone by now.
        If you don't like the product don't buy from them. You have that power. Armchair CEO's don't scare anyone.

      Looks a lot like a Range Rover Sport in profile.

      This isn't the X1. That has been debunked by several sources. Go check it out Dan, you should edit the post and change the title. This is a picture of the X5 //M that was rumored to be produced. BMW said it was a future X model, but didn't specify that it was an X1. Someone on bmwblog interpreted it to be an X1, it's not.

      Same X5 profile, new giant wheels, new giant body colored fender flares. THIS IS THE X5 M.

      So, an X3 washed on warm and tossed in the dryer that came out looking ready to fit an LR2
