A senior executive at BMW’s M division has quashed rumors that the German automaker may launch an M version of the stylish 4-Series Gran Coupe. BMW does sell an M6 Gran Coupe and considered adding a smaller M4 Gran Coupe to the lineup at one point, but has chosen to forgo it.  

“That is a negative,” BMW M sales boss Jörg Bartels told Carsguide when asked about the possibility of the car being built. “It was definitely considered, but there is no plan to build an M4 Gran Coupe.”

Bartels explained that low expected volume and the fact that the 4-Series Gran Coupe is built at a different plant to both the 3-Series and 4-Series models, meant there were just too many challenges to making the 4-Series Gran Coupe a viable option.  

The 3-Series and its M3 performance variant are built at BMW’s Regensburg plant while the 4-Series and M4 are built at BMW’s Munich plant. The 4-Series Gran Coupe, meanwhile, is built at BMW’s Dingolfing plant.

Bartels also confirmed to Carsguide that an M version of the 3-Series Gran Turismo won’t be built.
