That third image actually caught my attention. I now have a little bit of hope for the GT. Just hope it isn't an absolute pig in terms of weight....

Shows what the potential could be with a bit of suspension lowering.

i doubt that its not, all the bimmers have been coming out with increased wait in the last few years !!! the side stance is nice on the GT (i think its dropped), but the rear and the front look like complete garbage

They wouldnt drop a test car. Its hugging the corner at the specific point of the apex.

Its starting to grow on me though. I see potential.

yeah that third image was pretty hot.. but the rear kills it...the front is still aight..

I see where they are going.. but i'm not sure how well it's gonna roll... audi is doin the same.. there rear looks better .. see A7 / A9 concepts (the one that they showed in a auto show)

that drop makes everthing look great.. and all white BMWs look great.. ESPECIALLY WITH BLACK WHEELS

I always reserve final judgment of any BMW until I see it in person.
