 What If Tesla Made A Sexy Model 3 Coupe To Fight BMW’s 4-Series?

This story features independent renderings that are not affiliated with or endorsed by Tesla.

Tesla, known for sticking to sedans alongside its crossover siblings, has never delved into the world of coupe variants for its mainstream models. It’s as if they’re saying, “Who needs two doors when you can have four?” But lo and behold, digital artist Theophilus Chin comes along and creates renderings of a Tesla GT coupe.

Unsurprisingly, the model borrows the styling language of the freshly revealed 2024 Tesla Model 3. Those slim LED headlights, grille-less front, and clean bumper surfacing of the latter look sexier when mounted on a longer hood. Similarly, the coupe’s sleek roofline, frameless doors, and elongated rear end make it a more attractive prospect compared to the standard sedan. Add the mind-blowing performance of the Tesla Model S Plaid into the mix, and you have a pretty desirable product waiting to happen.

Theottle used the 2019 BMW Concept 4 as a base for the front and rear renderings of the Tesla GT. This sounds like a fitting choice in terms of proportions, as it previewed the similarly-sized BMW 4-Series Coupe. The latter would make for an ICE-powered competitor to the fictional EV, alongside the Audi A5 Coupe and the Mercedes-AMG CLE Coupe. Since the fully electric BMW i4 is only available in the Grand Coupe five-door liftback bodystyle, the Tesla GT wouldn’t have a direct rival. Of course, that would change if the Genesis X Coupe Concept evolves into a production offering, or if Alfa Romeo reveals a fully electric Giulia coupe.

The nearest competitor to Theophilus Chin’s Tesla GT rendering is perhaps the long-awaited Tesla Roadster, which may or may not make its debut in 2024 after an endless string of delays. However, it’s worth noting that the supercar-style aesthetics and performance-oriented nature of the Roadster are distinct from the elegant two-door, four-seater grand tourer showcased in these illustrations.

Sure, we understand that the sales numbers in this niche segment might not make financial sense for Tesla, given the substantial development costs involved. Nevertheless, wouldn’t it be rather refreshing if Tesla surprised us all by introducing a coupe version of the existing Model 3 or perhaps even in the next iteration of the Model S? It’s a tantalizing thought for sure.
