We've already seen plenty of the upcoming BMW 8 Series in both concept and camouflaged guises, but it looks like the German automaker has even more of the new 8er in store. 

Taking to Twitter, BMW has teased a mysteriously long, Aston Martin Rapide-like four-door supposedly headed to the Geneva Motor Show next week. Judging from its silhouette, this will likely be categorized as another one of those four-door coupes, or "Gran Coupes" as BMW likes to call 'em. 

Given how far away the wheels are from each other and the Hofmeister kink that bears a striking resemblance to the one found on the Concept 8 Series, we predict that this is very likely the 8 Series Gran Coupe. 

A four-door 8 Series isn't totally unexpected given the company's current product plans. If the 2 Series is getting a Gran Coupe, why wouldn't the flagship get one as well?

Or perhaps, it's some sort of left field Tesla Model S rival with a completely original nameplate. Like a Porsche Mission E but, y'know, made by BMW. Whatever this ends up being, we like what we see. Hopefully, however, BMW will remember to throw some door handles on this thing before it reaches production.
