When the next-generation BMW 3-Series comes out in a couple of years, there could be a variant missing.
BMWBlog has learned from a source that the 3-Series Gran Turismo (GT) is on the chopping block. The reason is that the 3-Series GT overlaps with the 4-Series Gran Coupe and it would make sense to focus one in the future. We're not sure if many BMW customers are cross-shopping a hatchback with a four-door coupe. We're thinking that the GT didn't meet BMW's sales expectations which is possibly why it could be getting the axe.
The next 3-Series is expected to debut in 2018 with sales beginning towards the end of year.
