BMW is considering to build a new super roadster / supercar.
There was an article about that a while ago in AutoCar: http://www.autocarmag.com/news...13192

BMW's DesignWorks design studio relased some conceptual sketches of "California Spyder" at last Los Angeles Auto Show:

I really don't see any point to BMW having a supercar (in the traditional sense, as opposed to the M5, a saloon with supercar engine) in their line-up. But then again, I don't see the point of M-B making MPVs, so that shows how out of the loop I am...

Those sketches were done by an art student for a BMW DWC design competition. BMW decided to show them at the show to gauge public reaction. As for those chops, I would guess they show the general idea, but some of the detailing is funky. (BMW would NEVER put the badge on the side so low, and the general look is a little too smooth)

That's why it will probably never be built.

I disagree, i think BMW does need a car like this, or something like it. BMW does not have anything to compete in the growing market of two door sports cars. the 6er is kind of in the class of the CLK, so if BMW wants to go head on, they need an ultra sport-luxury cruiser, one that drops jaws like the SL and not scratches heads with designs of the 6&7er
