BMW to Release 3 Series GT in 2011

The BMW 5 Series GT has yet to reach showrooms, but BMW is already planning a GT version of the 3 Series. The 335i Gran Turismo will be released sometime in 2011 and will have a similar two-stage tailgate as the 5-Series GT. It’s expected to be priced between the 3 Series and 5 Series. It’s also possible that 4 and 5 seater versions will be produced with both diesel and gasoline engines. It’s doubtful that an M3 version will be produced.

It’s not yet known if the 3 Series GT will replace the 3-Series wagon in the US, since the 5 Series GT is expected to replace the 5 Series wagon here.
