A WCF reader has sent us several photos of the upcoming 2013 BMW 3-Series GT.

A WCF reader has sent us these BMW 3-Series GT spy photos that were taken in Santa Barbara, California. He says the interior featured black leather upholstery with red stitching and wood grain accents on the doors.

Although not as practical as the wagon or as attractive as the sedan, BMW is continuing the GT trend started with the 5-Series. Its smaller counterpart is set to debut sometime next year and will borrow the engine lineup of other 3-Series models, together with RWD and xDrive AWD versions.

The two-tier rear hatch design will find its way on this 3-Series GT but probably will look a bit better compared to the 5-Series GT. Other than that, the ride height and seating position will be raised.

Special thanks to Mike for sending us the photos!
