Arrow UPDATED: BMW Longterm Roadmap for Future Cars

STAY UP TO DATE ON THE LATEST @ BIMMERPOST: http://www.bimmerpost.com/future-bmw/

Some of these dates may be speculative, but are at the very least good approximations based on historical model scheduling and/or other information or rumors.

Thanks for the info but something is out of whack.

A 3 year gap between the F10 5er and F12 6er doesn't seem likely..... Also historically, BMW delivers 7, 5, 6 then 3 series....

I hope the M1 thing is real.

Yea I think some of the dates refer to presentation date (press photos autoshows) and some of the dates refer to onsale dates, so I'd use this more as a general roadmap then an exacting ruler to follow

e92 face lift next year, he just didn't include it...

I think he clearly states not to take it too literally in his original post...

when did the X3 be released? seems like one long ass time for it to be revamped. i just find it sad... the X3 NEEDS to be redone. it looks like a crashed 2006 X5.

Interesting logic here...so, the faster a car manufacturer releases new model means the better it is?

X7 = elongated X5 = BS?

Q7 = elongated Touareg = Porsche Cayenne = Golden? lol

By the way:
A3 = GTI = Rabbit = Jetta = TT = Scirocco = Tiguan = (go on and on...)

A4 = Passat = Some Seat

Just in case you don't know.

Well according to some 'exclusive' insider reports here is the general upcoming BMW roadmap. Things are looking good!

These dates aren't the timeline for leaks but rather the official presentation of these cars and/or arrival to dealerships.

09/08 E90 Facelift
11/08 New 7 Series
01/09 New Z4
09/09 BMW PAS (Progressive Activity Sedan Crossover)
2009 BMW X1 arrives to dealers
2010 New 5 series
2010/2011 BMW CS based vehicle
2011 1-series Sedan
2011 Z2 lightweight roadster
2012 BMW Supersportscar tribute / M1 revival ---- this car has been postponed by the board due to the current economic climate
2012 1-Series Coupe/Convert
2012 New 3 series Sedan, 6 months later the wagen
2012 Possible X4
2013 New 3 series Coupe and Convert
2013 New 6 Series
2014 New long wheelbase X5 or possibly called the X7

Many of these dates are pure speculation, but many seem to have alot of detailed information attached to them making them seem more accurate then simple rumor. It will be exciting to see things unfold, but the looks of things are good!!!
Whoever compiled this "RoadMap" cleary does not work within BMW AG!!

Discrpencies?

There never was to be a production car of the M1 Hommage. This is merely a design study to celebrate 30 years of the M1 , there was no plans for production , especially in what was speculated on specifics for the production version. Why no production M1? Because BMW are not interested in Pissing competitions with our rivals and are more interested in future sustainance and stability thanks to our Efficient Dynamics programme.

No 1er sedan. BMW will not introduce a sedan because of the damage that can be done of BMW four cylinder 3er sales in Europe in which four cylinder petrol and diesel models are big sellers in European markets. And the 1er will not interfere by not introducing a conventional sedan and touring variants.

Z2 Roadster will be based off the next 1er platform and will have offer aswell as usual petrol and diesel engines a stand alone turbo charged four cylinder with mild hybrid technology. The aim is to have a BMW sports car in amongst the hybrids but to defy convention by offering something more unique and groundbreaking for customers.

No X7. The X5 is sufficient enough in terms of space , performance and efficiency.

BMW Gran Turismo - will be the flagship of the BMW division. The Audi A7 will be a direct competitor with the Mercedes CLS , The BMW and Audi are two different segments - Audi is for the mid level luxury segment and BMW will be for the upper luxury segment. The BMW will be the most expensive BMW on the market.
