BMW's coupe concept rendered, but is it coming to Frankfurt?

BMW Vision Concept by Jon Sibal - Click above for a larger image

Photoshop savant Jon Sibal has worked his rendering wizardry on one of the BMW spy shots we saw earlier this week, but according to the automaker, the cloaked concept isn't bound for a Frankfurt Motor Show debut.

Citing a source within BMW, iMotorMag is reporting that the vehicle in question is a five-year-old design study that was being moved from the automaker's studio in Germany to a storage facility. Although BMW still plans to unveil the Vision EfficientDynamics concept next month in Frankfurt, this reportedly isn't it (anyone else smell damage control?). However, that little detail doesn't detract from Sibal's efforts.

Taking a few cues from the BMW M1 Homage concept, particularly the sculpted and creased front clip, Sibal's rendering does its best to interpret the coupe's lines through the tight cover. Although we think the twin-kidney grille probably descends further down the fascia, we're digging the reinterpreted Hoffmeister Kink that's been warped and indented to match the sharp lines of the concept. We'll know if Sibal's rendering was spot-on next month or if BMW has a new trick up its sleeve when the wraps come off BMW's next-generation coupe concept in Germany.
