RIP: BMW 6-seri

The 3 and 6 Series Gran Turismos were recent introductions to the BMW lineup, donning four doors and a sloping hatchback body that upped the utility factor a bit while lowering sex appeal immensely. All-wheel drive came standard, but sales did not.

With a new 3 Series here and the resurrected 8 series taking the place of all things luxurious and sporty at the top end, the GTs and the 6 Series as a whole don’t make much sense. Like most automakers, BMW wants fewer build configurations and a leaner business. The 6 Series’ demise was foretold by the loss of the more traditional coupe and convertible variants, leaving only the GT and Gran Coupe (actually a sedan, regardless of what anyone says) as oddball pickings.

Not needed, BMW feels — the new 8 Series, in gran coupe, droptop, and coupe guise, will scratch the itch of high-end buyers looking for something exclusive and sexy.
