BMW hasn't really done well with the big money, mass-market coupe lately. The Z8 did fine, thank you very much, but that was a limited edition. The 8 Series on the other hand, one of our favorite cars to this day, didn't do anywhere close to fine. And the car that could have been said to replace it, the 6 Series, certainly hasn't had a bad life but it hasn't done any blitzkrieging of market share either. The current 6, which first pointed its rotund snout our way in 2003, is about to be replaced by a model that will complete BMWs return to more conventional design. We drove the 650i and had a long, top-down talk about why it was going away and what we might want from its successor.
