BMW's plans for the Frankfurt Auto Show are coming into clearer focus this week as prior reports of a green-themed Coupe have been shucked aside by the company's PR folks.

While BMW plans a 50th-anniversary celebration for the MINI brand, a worldwide reveal of the new Rolls-Royce Ghost, and a new generation of the venerable BMW 5-Series sedan, it's also planning a stunning four-door coupe concept that could go green--in the form of a small three-cylinder turbocharged engine, according to a speculative piece today in AutoExpress.

The angular coupe, they report, is dubbed the EfficientDynamics Vision. A sleek drawing predicts what could show up on the BMW stand in Frankfurt, but there's nothing to prepare showgoers for the unexpected drivetrain underneath the hood.

The new concept will sport a three-cylinder turbocharged engine, as the story goes. It'll also have hybrid power to propel it.

If it pans out, the new concept and its drivetrain would likely share its lithium-ion battery pack with the new BMW 7-Series Hybrid also due at the Frankfurt show. It would also provide the German automaker with a cohesive green theme--particularly if those other reports about an "i-Setta" electric city car prove true.

TheCarConnection and Motor Authority will be in Frankfurt to show you more from the show floor; you can bookmark our Frankfurt Auto Show tag and come back here often for previews and updates prior to show week.

  1. Looks like the speculation surrounding that prototype spotting (http://ow.ly/jBBA) may have been correct -- same profile, same detailing. Personally, I think it's a little overstyled, but they so seldom call and ask my opinion anymore...
