History of the BMW E24: the first generation of BMW 6 Series grand tourer coupés which was produced from January 1976 to April 1989. It replaced the E9 coupés and was, after a 16-year hiatus, succeeded by the E63 6 Series in 2004. The E24 was produced solely in a 2-door coupe body style.
The initial proposal for the E24 was a based on a BMW E9 3.0 CS with an increased height, in order to make it easier for customers to get into the car. However, Bob Lutz rejected the proposal, eventually leading to the shape of the E24 in its production form. The E24 was designed by Paul Bracq. Unlike its E9 predecessor, the body of the E24 has a B Pillar.
Production started in January 1976 with the 630CS and 633CSi in February 1976. Originally the bodies were manufactured by Karmann, but production was later taken in-house to BMW.
In 1982, the E24 platform changed from the E12 5 Series to the E28 5 Series, resulting changes to exterior styling, engines, chassis, suspension, electronics and the interior. The struts in the new front suspension were double-linked ones, making the car less likely to dip under hard braking. The new rear axle was nearly identical to the trailing arm layout of the E28 528i, with the addition of an extra top-mounted link. Meanwhile, the ventilated rear discs had proven a needless complication and were replaced with solid ones.
The 635 CSi engine was updated to the 3,430 cc (209 cu in) M30B34, which used a smaller bore and longer stroke than the previous 3,453 cc (211 cu in) M90 engine. The 635CSi became available with a wide-ratio 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
