These renderings re-create a beautiful and modern BMW E9, which was originally built for the Bavarian company by Karmann from 1968 to 1975. In fact, this reinterpretation is an even mix between the E9 and its predecessor - the 1965 BMW 2000 CS (E120 series). The project is the work of designer David Obendorfer, who has also created some original virtual reinterpretations of the Fiat 127, Renault 4 and Fiat 500 in the past.

“The BMW CS Vintage Concept is based on the 6 series platform (in production since 2011). The style, despite numerous citations from the past, is substantially contemporaneous with updated proportions and with modern details, many of which are inspired by nautical styling solutions. The interior design is minimalist with simple lines and high quality materials such as wood or hand-stitched leather. It lacks references to the BMW coupés of the 60s such as the four circular instruments that on the CS Vintage Concept become four small TFT screens two of which are freely programmable. The central hideaway monitor displays navigational and infotainment data,” as David describes his latest work.
