BMW's long-awaited four-door coupe model's apparently nearing the end of its development pipeline, as newly retrieved patent images indicate. The elegant new model will be essentially a four-portal 6 Series competing with the Mercedes-Benz CLS and Audi A7.

Recent patent filings show a new model that's a dead ringer for the BMW Gran Coupé shown at the 2010 Shanghai auto show. Noted changes to the bumper, exhaust pipes and other subtleties. Other than that, as BMW execs have said, the "coupe" will be similar in content to the current 6 Series.

And the name? Don't expect to see a Gran Coupé badge on the grand "coupe" anytime soon, but an expansion of BMW's GT franchise isn't out of the question.

A Douchemobile for every kind of douche.

We now have, the 1 series, for the raising douche.

The 3 series, for the established moderate income douche.

The 5 series, for the established douche with higher income and bigger ego.

The 6 series, for the sporty yet familiar douche.

The 7 series, for the wealthy and conservative douche.

The X's for the douche that never wants to be seen down under the fender of an Expedition.

And, the MINI, for the popsy, elitist, trendy douche.
