BMW Concept CS Will Not Go to Production

BMW officials have revealed that it will not be producing the much awaited BMW Concept CS scheduled to debut by 2011. The decision has been made after looking at the meager 1.3% operating return.

The car company will be focusing on profitability and has reconsidered to halt the production version of what can be the top BMW car. The Concept CS does not conform with the internal requirements which can bring in money to the manufacturer.

The BMW Concept CS was unveiled in 2007 and joined the New York car show last march. It is a coupe-style vehicle with a four-person capacity designed to compete in the class of Mercedes-Benz CLS, Porsche Panamera, and Quatroporte of Maserati.

The car manufacturer aims to push for the development of efficient dynamics and project 1 which involves investment in future technologies but they are looking to cut cost by as much as $7.79 billion a year.

The BMW Concept CS was planned to take the 8-series name plate. It was being developed by the M Division of BMW with plans of installing a 6.0L power plant under its hood.

The design of the car is in tribute to the large two-door coupes that ruled the BMW line in the 1960’s. However, the last BMW car to use the CS designation is the 850 CSi produced in 1996.

The CS would have been a supreme car which surpasses the architecture of the BMW series 7. Its wheelbase is measured at 123.7 inches while it comes wider than a 7-series but lower.

The lines of the BMW Concept CS prove to belong to a classic gran turismo, too bad it will not be in production.
