2003 - 1989
The first generation BMW E24 6 Series was available solely as a two-door coupÃ© and produced from 1976 to 1989, then it was supplanted by the BMW 8 Series (E31) although the latter had a substantially higher price and performance. When the 6 Series nameplate was revived in 2004 for the second generation, the BMW E63/E64 6 Series, the coupÃ© was joined by a convertible body style. The third generation F06/F12/F13 6 Series debuted in 2011 as a coupÃ© and convertible, and added a four-door coupÃ© body style (known as the Gran CoupÃ©) in 2012. When the F06/F12/F13 6 Series ended production, the "Gran CoupÃ©"/coupÃ©/convertible models have been shifted into the more upmarket BMW 8 Series (G15) nameplate. The fourth generation 6 Series, the G32 6 Series, debuted in mid-2017 and is offered only as a fastback body style to complement the BMW 5 Series (G30) sedan/wagon.
