The Next-Gen BMW 8 Series Will Be Radically Different

In 2025, the new model may be offered exclusively as an electric GranCoupe.

The first-generation BMW 8 Series was a fantastic sports car, and its V-12 motor is still fondly remembered by many.

BMW aimed to replicate its previous year’s success with the 2018 Coupe (G15), Convertible (G14), and GranCoupe (G16)

This is why, over the past few years, there have been consistent rumors that BMW is planning to overhaul the 8 Series.

The next-generation 8 Series (G77), as reported by, will go into production in 2026.

BMW’s CLAR rear-wheel-drive platform, which can accommodate virtually any drivetrain, will continue to serve as the vehicle’s foundation.
