Yes. It is already in the works and the people from AutoExpress have rendered these images as to how the 4 series will look like in 2014 when it is to be released. Its meant to 'complement' the 3 series range and to battle for supremacy with the Audi A5 Sportback.

Originally thought to be a 3 series variant called the GT (as with the 5 series GT), BMW have decided to go with the 4 series to pitch the new car between the 3 and 5, obviously. But they have used the 5 Series GT as a base, only miniaturized it to become a smaller GT which is rather ugly. Supposedly, consumers are meant to experience a more 'premium' feel in the 4 series compared to the 3 but in other words, it just shouts to the world that you can't afford a 5. Underneath, there will be a stretched version of BMW's new rear-wheel drive system to optimize the interior space and the bootlid can either be opened like a hatchback or a conventional boot. However, don't expect serious performance like the 3 series offers, this is meant to soothe your brow as your drive along in comfort. Suspension setups will not be as hard as the 3 series as the focus is mainly on the passengers' comfort.

All Wheel Drive X versions will also be available while the powerplant will either be the latest latest four and six-cylinder petrol and diesel units, including the new 245bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol introduced on the X1.

Also like the Audi sportbacks tall ppl cannot sit comfortably in the rear seats becos of the sloping roof. Getting in & out of the rear will also have their heads hitting the roof too. Hey, but who cares? It's the badge that matters and it will overcome all the shortcomings....at least for sgp buyers.
