Its got an 18-20 inch rear quarter window- thats a really long coupe.

Compare that photo to a photo of the coupe, its definitely stretched.

Its the 4-door, look again.

Look at the rear window/ rear quarter window between the two cars, defintely different versions, one being stretched, with a rectangular frame.

Jag XF copy?

I believe the Jaguar XF is being copied by BMW (not a bad thing). I love the looks of fastback cars coupes and 4 doors.

Dude, if that's a 4 door, then looking at the B pillar, the rear door is 4 inches long.

There's only like 6" of distance from the rear of the front door (as is located by the base of the B pillar) to the leading edge of the rear tire.

It's merely the closed version of the 6. The other is the convertible.

PM3, not that I think your argument that first to market products will sell better is of significant worry to BMW.. but consider that even after the CS was officially canned, the project (which was already underway), carried on..

This I remember from 18 months ago

It's the general disintigration of automotive definitions, becasue apparently definitions are subjective, open to interpretation, and simply reflections of opinion. They already bastardized roadster. Next up wil be the M3 pickup truck that won't actually be a pickup truck.
