G30 the BMW
Yes, we are already entering the G chassis realm, having very swiftly passed through the F series cars. The current BMW 5-Series is the F10 and the upcoming next generation 5-Series will be the G30.

35up
According to Car Magazine's sources, BMWs next generation platform is called 35up. What it basicly means is that everything from the 3-series/5-series and up will be based on this shared super platform. Utilizing the increasing mix of elements including steel, aluminum and certainly CFRP, weight is expected to drop substantially for the next generation.

Engines?
Well, previously Autocar and now Car Magazine are all reporting that the new 3-cylinder BMW engine will power the new 5. And that should be no shock or surprise, as the new modular platform of BMW engines allows for a common family of motors which will range from 3 to 6 cylinders in a variety of displacements. As usually, expect the range to go from super fuel efficent (they are quoteing a 72mpg version of the 3-cylinder engine!) to super fast.

Who cares about all this, what about the ///M5
Rumors right now are holding steady right now, which is to say the car will be packing ~ 600HP Twin Turbo V8 and possibly 400lbs lighter then the current car

What model variants can we expect
It does without saying the car will be at its core a 4-door sedan, a wagon, and the famed M5 will certainly be making a return as well. Expect to also see a second generation 5-Series Gran Turismo car, which might end up being one of the more interesting cars to watch for, if just to see how this car evolves into a second generation.

The car is slated to arrive in the Summer of 2016.

I'm really going to miss the days when no one really cared about fuel efficiency. Where's the fun in that? How does one go to the bar with his friends, tell them he just bought a new 5er, and it has a bloody 3-cylinder engine?

3 and 5 on the same wheelbase? I remember when Mitsubishi tried this 10 years ago.. Didn't work to well for them.

However the rendering of the 5 looks great.

Same platform? 3 cylinder?
Let's all build a time machine that'll take us back to when the e39 came out.

Why so soon? The F30 3 series and F10 5 series have just barely entered the market and they are already talking about replacing them? The E60 and E90 definitely had a much longer run than that. What happened?

F10 has been on the market for nearly 5 years at this point.

Now, if they can really turn this into production, this will be my 3-series' replacement in 2016.

Wow this sucks for people who bought an LCI M5. They only get to enjoy for a little while before the new 5 comes out.

What are you saying? One can only enjoy his car until the newer generation hits the street?
That sounds retarded.

What? 5 series with a little 3 cylinder? No way.. I'm sure there will still be a 550 with 8 right? 'N it's understandable, u don't want to be driving an obviously older looking beamer out there when there's a newer model,

So I guess that means the 3er will be the smallest RWD car.

I was about to jump on the F10 M5 but I'm going to wait another year or two for the G30. Render or not, I'm kinda getting bored of my F10.
