It was during the reign of Bob Lutz (Executive V. P – Sales) that the development of the BMW 635 CSi E24 came up for designing. Though the original idea of BMW’s design department was to have C-pillar (vertical support structure near the car windows) like her predecessor the E9, Lutz rejected this idea and instead preferred to have a B-pillar.
With German coachbuilder Karmann making the initial car bodies, production began in February 1976. By the time production ended in 1989, over 80,000 were built and paved the way for the future BMW 6 Series Gran Tourer Coupé.
