BMW director of product planning Paul Ferraiolo has disclosed the company will continue to expand its model range, but an M7 is not planned.

Speaking to MotorTrend during the Los Angeles Auto Show, Ferraiolo commented the product offensive of the brand is “an ongoing process”. He also told the magazine “when we see something that could work, we go after it, so it's not something that has a finite ending when we run out of numbers”.

When asked about a range-topping M7 model, he explained that the Alpina B7 is currently taking this role. “We feel really good with what we've got with Alpina,” he said. “The M adds sort of a track-element to that, and I don't know if there's a lot of demand for the 7-Series on the track”.
