Brenda Priddy & Co. and her team of shooters spotted this three-door prototype of the upcoming BMW 1-Series. Looking closely at the photos, the group points to the seam line that has been marked with black tape to portray a rear-door outline—although there is no rear door! They also point out the angled B-pillar.
Priddy's team had previously only spotted five-door variants of the next-generation 1-Series in prototype form. But both body styles reveal the 1-Series' sleeker, more extended look. With expected powerplants to be similar the current 135i coupes and cabrio, Priddy says to look for an official introduction later this year.
