Talking World’s Most Confusing Car Maker

Just days after releasing details of a new four-door M6 coupe, BMW has revealed a baffling two-door version of the M5 saloon.

‘Ja, that’s right,’ confirmed BMW spokesman Beaemm W. Spokesmann. ‘We are making a two door version of the four door car that was the basis of the two door car that became a four door car. It is part of the same philosophy that caused us to badge a 3-series with a 2-litre engine as a 328i. As you Britische would say, we are f###ing with you.’

Munich sources claim that the inexplicable two door M5 will be followed by other equally perplexing new models including a 5-series Touring saloon, a short-wheelbase version of the 760Li and a coupe based on the 6-series Convertible.

According to Herr Spokesmann, the new model onslaught is part of BMW’s plan to become ‘the world’s most confusing car maker’ by 2015. However, industry experts warn that the German company’s ambition may be thwarted by the continued existence of Proton which has completely baffled everyone for over 20 years.

There must be some good business reasons and return on investment calculations.
But I wonder how much are the cost overheads for all these different versions, although the base platform remains same.
I'm very curious to see the affect on the resale value and 2nd hand market of these cars. With so many options and versions overlapping, used BMW market will be interesting. I would say the value will go down.

Ah man I was hoping they would announce their plans for a wagon convertible based off of the X6.
