2017 BMW 9-Series Coupe

Talk about BMW producing a range-topping model to sit above the existing 7-Series certainly isn’t new. Long tipped to revive the 8-Series name, such a car seems all but confirmed and in a report from Automobile Magazine, it seems such a model is closer than ever to becoming a reality.
Importantly, this latest report suggests that the German marque won’t dub the model an 8-Series and instead call it the 9-Series. This is apparently because it doesn’t want to resurrect the name of an unpopular model and doesn’t own the rights to 10-Series.
It is claimed that such a car will be based around the long-wheelbase variant of the 7-Series and sit between the 7-Series and Rolls-Royce Ghost in the automaker’s portfolio. It will be a four-door ‘coupe’, produced in limited numbers and inspired by the Vision Future Luxury Concept. We can reportedly expect to welcome the 9-Series into the world sometime in early 2020 not long after the current 7-Series receives its obligatory mid-life facelift.
A number of different powertrains are said to be used by the new BMW range-topper including a 650 hp V12, a twin-turbo V8 and a six-cylinder plug-in hybrid. There’s also a chance an all-electric model could be offered.

Новая флагманская модель с посадочной формулой 2+2 будет построена на удлиненном шасси седана 7-Series. По предварительной информации, в силовую линейку войдут моторы V6 и V8, а также гибридная силовая установка. Скорее всего, появится и заряженная модификация M960i, которая получит V12, мощностью 650 л.с. (484 кВт). Гибридный BMW 9-Series планируется оснастить той же силовой установкой, что и Rolls-Royce Phantom EV.
