BMW chose the Tokyo Auto Show to announce that a production version of the CS concept (4-door coupe) will become a reality.
The large sedan will most likely be dubbed as an 8-series when the car debuts at the 2009 Frankfurt Auto Show. The new 8-Series is going to go head to head with the Mercedes CLS, and upcoming Porsche Panamera. The CS Concept rides on the same platform as the 7-Series sedan although it is longer and wider.
