It makes perfect sense. The 5-series GT did so well that they want expand the GT product line.... NOT. I worked for BMW and this car was and still is DISMAL (5GT). This 3 Series GT has no purpose. If one wants a hatch then why not get a wagon? It's not like this one offers the same utility in a sexier package. It doesn't. What they should have done is make a 3 Series Gran Coupe. I think this 3GT will be another car that BMW will sweep under the rug over time. I think a 3GC is in the works anyway.
