The boys from Leftlane News found a nearly-naked shot of BMW's upcoming 3-series coupe on the UK's Autocar, which seems to refute the rumor that BMW's newest coupe would only be offered as a retractable-hardtop model (though that could still be the case in the US). It also indicates we're ever so much closer to the launch of the next-gen, V8-powered M3 — which won't likely happen before 2007. Ugh.
