It's about time. After letting Mercedes define the class with its CLS, then allowing rivals like Porsche and Audi to put their own spin on things, BMW is finally entering the "four-door coupe" market with the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe ($TBA). Available in 640i — with a 315 hp TwinPower Turbo 3.0-liter 6-Cylinder engine good for a 0 to 62 mph time of just 5.4 seconds — or 650i — sporting a 445 hp TwinPower Turbo V-8 engine that improves the 0-62 mph 4.6 seconds — variations, it also offers up optional xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive, an eight-speed Sport Automatic Transmission, optional Integral Active Steering, adaptive LED headlights, a 10.2-inch dash-mounted HD display, 19-inch light-alloy wheels, rear-, top-, and side-view cameras, a next-generation heads-up display, a HiFi audio system, and plenty of other goodies.
Why hello there,
Supra Toyota GT 86 ($TBA). Aside from its oddball name — Toyota apparently is neither happy with its former sports car moniker nor familiar with the American meaning of "86'd" — the 2+2 looks quite intriguing, with a 2.0L boxer engine producing 197hp, either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission, 17-inch wheels standard, and rear wheel drive. Okay, so maybe it's more of a sporty Corolla than a true Supra replacement, but that doesn't mean we aren't still waiting on one.
