The 5 Series GT continues to sell better than it ‘s wagon stablemate despite being panned by many critics. Could it be that BMW knows it ‘s audience better than automotive writers? Clearly BMW thinks so as the 3 series will spawn a similar GT model in late 2012. The 3er GT will be more sleek and sportier than the much larger 5 GT. It ‘ll also be simpler with a traditional hatch rather than the two-piece unit in the 5 GT.

Our favorite BMW (public) insider is also saying that the appearance will be unique even with the 3 series range (a la the 5 GT).
