The genesis of the BMW Gran Coupe – Click above for high-res image gallery

We didn't get a production version of the Concept CS, but it looks like things are going to go a little less disappointingly with the recently unveiled BMW Gran Coupé. Elements from the rakish four-door are will first appear on the 6 Series coupe and convertible, and the Gran Coupé's cues are expected to "turn up all over the BMW range in the next few years."

BMW Blog has a couple of looks behind the creation of the Gran Coupé, which looks to have been designed by Nader Faghihzadeh, the man behind the new 7 Series interior. You can have a look at some of the Making Of in the gallery of photos below, or follow the link for more while we wait for it to appear at the Paris Motor Show this fall. But BMW, even if you don't make it, can we at least talk about Transporter 4 or a new round of BMW Films with this?

      It looks like the last Firebird model. When you're convinced BMWs can't become more tasteless....

        I was an illustrator and now I'm a graphic/web designer, but being an auto designer was always my fantasy job.

        Yup, as an "ordinary" BMW sedan, the Gran Coupe is a tremendous step forward, back to where BMW should have stayed, away from the bloat of the past several years.
