Update: Serious Wheels has some nice large images of the new 3 Series up now. Bimmer fans you have new wallpaper.
AutoWeek gives us a good look at the future of the 3 Series with official photos, not those leaked on the Internet from a brochure a while back. The look is clean and offers muscular bulges everywhere. For many it may remind them of a slightly smaller 5 Series since the 3 has grown in nearly every dimension over the outgoing model. Tidbits in the article include the fact that 3-series coupes will retain the current naming conventions. BMW shelved the idea of calling them a 4-series saying that would cause marketing problems. Indeed. Power is provided by a 3.0 liter inline six producing 255 horsepower, 222 lb.-ft. of torque and hitting 60 mph in 6.0 seconds. Now if marketing can just sell all those loyal BMW owners on the looks they'll have a winner.
