Is it me, or does G26 look more like 4GT than 4GC here?

I call bullshit on manual not being offered in AWD; the E53 and E83 both had manual variants as well as the E70.

CS is the one we've known about for a long time, and it's coming soon. The timeframe mentioned a few posts higher seems plausible. The name of the new special version I don't know yet.

The E70 wasnít available in a manual, and the other two you referenced went out of production 9 and 13 years ago. All of those were also SUVís, which thereís about a 0% chance of being offered as a stick today. If youíre going to use examples for AWD sticks from BMW, the 3-Series offered AWD and a stick as recently as the 340i xDrive sedan that just ended production last year. Thatís a much more applicable and recent example.

Really unlikely. As mentioned before, the F83 EOP is August 2020, so the G80/82 will most likely be revealed in September of 2020. Not much sense in revealing a new model when the F8x is still being produced.

Agreed. I had one of those rare E53 manuals.....

No one is saying it can't be done. Of course it can be done. Even the F30 340i was offered in AWD with a manual transmission.

The problem is that they're trying to reduce drivetrain configurations to reduce costs. EVERYONE is doing this because of the amount of money being spent on EV development. I also feel like they're trying to hunker down as some signs point to a possible downturn in auto sales and maybe even a recession.

If the G80 6MT RWD was up in the air, then what do you think the chances of an AWD 6MT being produced are? It's still possible of course, but it makes sense that BMW wouldn't make it. We'll see I guess.

Here's to my oddball hoping that this is a 375 hp, 3000lb 4 banger version...true CSL. This would be interesting.

This doesn't make sense to me. Why have they stopped F80 production so early then?

3000lbs and 375hp on 4 cylinder you can't get much more out of that engine.

Mercedes is the only one with 416hp 4cylinder

I rather get 3500lbs G80 M3 and tune it to have way over 600+hp

Weight to power ratio is much better.

I LIKE the front page photo.

it took 6 days for any updates since 08/01 so I presume all the bimmerpost moderators were either on vacation for a week or they were all needed to collaborate on the front page design...

SEDAN production BEGINS and ENDS 1 year sooner than coupe.

that's EXACTLY why the F80 sedan stopped because the G20 SEDAN is on the STREET right now and the 4 series G22 is not (yet);

4 series production ends next summer, and the next gen 4 series including G82 production will begin afterward.

I respectfully disagree..

I will take the 3000 lb hottie (if it's RWD) over the 3500 lb fat chick any day...

you can have power to weight.. all I know... is when you are dancing and the fat chick steps on your foot.. it HURTS.
