    New BMW CS has been green-lighted for production.

    I think it looks great. It doesn't look like a Bangle car, and even reminds me of the Quattroporte. No word on engines in the article I read.

    Re: New BMW CS has been green-lighted for production.

    I have seen it at the IAA in september, and it looks HUGE in person!

    Yes, it is huge, but I think all the other BMW models will adopt this "family" look which is a big improvement over the Bangle-era designs!

    Re: New BMW CS has been green-lighted for production.

    It looks better than Panemera

    Re: New BMW CS has been green-lighted for producti

    you mean the CS concept looks better than the camouflaged testing prototype of the Panamera..

    Yep, starting with new 7 series which will be presented in june - july.

    Re: New BMW CS has been green-lighted for producti

    Any guesses will it cary a CS mark or will they use a number for it!

    I would like to see a number, but than again they did get avay with X and Z series...

    Re: New BMW CS has been green-lighted for producti

    CS = New 8-series Won't hit the market until 2012.

    Re: New BMW CS has been green-lighted for producti

    2012 sounds way too far..
    Merc's CSL is already out..
    Audi's A7, Porsche's Panamera and Aston's Rapid should be on the market by 2010..

    i can't believe BMW will be out of this market segment for that long..

    Re: New BMW CS has been green-lighted for production.

    I can still see the Bangle-boot...
    However, if it comes like this with the new V8 Diesel it's going to be a stunner !

    No, he said that it looks better than the Panamera. That Panamera rear end will not look good no matter how much camo they remove from it
    (It doesn't really have a rear end, it just ends.... )

    Anyway, we were talking about the CS, the best looking concept I have seen in years.
    Regarding engines, I will bet my right arm that it will have the new twin-turbo V8 that will debut in the X6. The twin-turbo sixes, both diesel and petrol, will most likely also be fitted. And by the time the CS hits the road BMW will probably have a hybrid drivetrain in production.

    Either way it will be one hell of a car if BMW keeps the tradition of not really changing anything from concept to production (unlike the Jaguar S-Type f ex)

    My source said new 8 series will be presented in 2010. Work on new 8 series already started.

    I agree with you,temm,, the BM is so much more pleasing on the eye..

    That wing looks horrible on the Panamera,,I hope that ends up being camo ..

    that sounds more like it..
    2010 is the same as the Panamera, Rapid & A7..
    that means we will get 4 Saloon-Coupe in one year

    Re: New BMW CS has been green-lighted for producti

    Porsche is in trouble, unless the whole panamera body and engine sound are camo.
