BMW is planning to develop a successor of the current 1M Coupe and the model is expected to be officially presented to the public during the 2014 North American International Auto Show.
With the current BMW 1M Coupe leaving the production line so soon for no obvious reason, the German based automaker is comforting the company’s fans by producing a successor for the pocket rocket. Even if there is no official word on the future generation of the BMW 1M Coupe just yet, the guys at autoweek.com are saying that the model will be named the M235i Coupe and it will be based on the 2-Series Coupe, which will make its debut next year during the Frankfurt Motor Show.
Our source is also saying that mechanicals on the future 1M Coupe will be carried over from the M135i so a 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine, which will produce at least 315 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque (332 lb-ft) will be expected under its hood, mated to a six-speed manual transmission and with a dual-clutch available as an option, powering the rear-wheel drive or even the all-wheel drive system, which is also expected to debut. More details on the future generation of the BMW 1M Coupe will be announced sometimes next year.
