Apple-bottomed, hunch-backed, whatever you like to call them, the latest round of not-quite-hatchbacks from Germany's automakers, most notably the BMW 5-Series GT and Porsche Panamera, have taken root. But a new rumor out of the official BMW CCA magazine Roundel says the infestation may spread to the M3 lineup.
We're huge fans of the M3 in all its flavors, perhaps especially the sedan, as it's a practical four-seater that can actually haul the kids and haul some tail on the weekends. By that logic, an M3 GT could be an even better variation on that theme. But we're just not sold on the proportions that come from adding a lumpy boot to the tail of an otherwise handsome sedan.
