M8i Gran Coupe?

With rumors of Merc building a hybrid version of their GT 4 Door (allegedly 73(s) moniker) to compete against the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, think BMW will join the race?

Seeing that it's been mentions of future products with both M Division and i Team technology, there seems to be a possibility.

There is chat about the S68 engine this week which could be an S63TU plus 48v mild hybrid or similar.

I'm sure it will eventually happen, but when it comes to electrification/mild-hybrid systems, seems BMW is usually late to the game, or at least never the first.
