Definitely going to be a sexy sedan err coupe.

I'd pick it over an S class or 7 series or any other large 4-door car

Hmmm... looks big, heavy and even bloated. And probably that's because it is all of that!

Yeah I'm really not a fan of what BMW is doing with the C and D pillars on the new 4 door coupe things like this and the new X4. I think the 6GC has a sleeker looking profile than the 8GC.

The 8 is smaller than the 6, will the GC follow that as well?

It'll run the 2975mm wheelbase of the G30, I'm about 95% certain of that.

The G15 has a 2822mm wheelbase and is 4851mm long. I'm going to guess the G16 will be 5004mm long.

Good to hear. Maybe it can replace my CLS after lease if BMW has mastered the driving experience compared to the M550i.
