Now that you mention it, there's definitely some 2002 Homage going on there. With that said, I can't help but think that the Gran Lusso Concept from 2013 also influenced the design.

That was a beautiful concept! Maybe we'll get a hood line similar to that, but it looks like the prototypes are sporting a single headlight like the new 2er. These prototypes seem to have a very pronounced shark nose. Some members have been saying that maybe we'll see some of the future luxury concept in this, but I think that ship has sailed as those design cues are already in the current 7er. The current lower lip/spoiler is straight from the Future Luxury Concept.

The Gran Lusso is a beautiful car!

I think the Future Luxury Concept served it's purpose as it's design features heavily on the current 7. It's time for something new...

Just noticed how the Hofmeister kink bears quite a resemblance to the E38.

Nice touch.

Itís funny you mention the Aztek and then imply that BMW lost their way with the the front of the G platform.

Have you seen what the X4 and X6 back half looks like? At least the front of the G cars look inspired.

new headlights with iconic glow? what would bw iconic glow on headlights, does anybody have idea? IG grill is ok, same as X6, but woukd be with headlights?

as all of you, i am seeing a lot of "dual-headlight" renders, but i do believe that headlights will be single piece, just that DRL would bi like iX, over led lights, and not under... i saw recently some new 3er LcI spy on instagram from WilcoBlok, and new 3 will have DRL above main light unit..

Radical. Innovative and a braver design direction.
It will be very much debated which is necessary.
There are people not only here that will ultimately detest its appearance.
If G11 was when BMW allowed minuscule influence of Rolls-Royce into its luxury sedan? G70 allows further influences. Cabin is like iX but more luxury appointed.

I know…could have at least used a G12 instead of a G11.

Yes a lot of the actual detail placement is severely off. Especially the front fascia. But people actually fell for it.

Guys, I stumbled upon this image on Instagram. I have no idea if it's legit.

If it's the real deal I assume it's the concept that was spoken of previously. From the little that can be seen I think it looks really good!

Maybe someone can enhance the image with their computer wizardry?
