2019 BMW 8-Series Is Going To Make For One Slick Convertible

If you’ve been living in a cave with no internet for the past year or so, we have good news for you: BMW is working on bringing back the 8 Series.

Phased out before the turn of the millennium in (eventual) favor of the 6 Series, the 8 was one of the sleekest coupes Munich ever produced. Judging from these latest spy shots, the new one will be at least as slick.

Spotted undergoing cold-weather testing, this prototype for the 8 Series – which will come in both coupe and convertible forms this time around – is wearing less camouflage than ever before. It also appears to be wearing the optional M-Sport package, giving it even more of an aggressive appearance.

Following on the concept that debuted this past summer at Villa d’Este, BMW is gearing the new 8 Series to take on the likes of the Mercedes S-Class coupe, Lexus LC, and Aston Martin DB11 – even the Polestar 1 and the Audi A9 (should that ever reach production).

Expect it to come in escalating degrees of capability, from the “standard” model, past the M Performance version, and all the way up to the full-on M8. That’s something that, with apologies to the 850 CSi and Alpina B12, was never offered the first time around.
