The German based automaker BMW is planning on developing a true M performance model based on the recently unveiled 2-Series.
The BMW M division might receive a new member, or even two new ones, as the company is planning on developing an M2 Coupe and even an M2 Convertible. The two vehicles will be smaller versions of the M4 Coupe and M4 Convertible and are believed to make their way onto the market in a couple of years. Chances are that the engines used would be the same 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder found on the current M235i Coupe, which might receive an impressive 380 HP.
These will be sent to the rear wheels through a manual and an automatic gearbox, depending on the choices made. Some other features brought this time from its older brothers include the rear slip differential, named the Active M Differential, a four tailpipe exhaust system and even a similar body kit. Some newly introduced chassis tech will also be a possibility, along with some changes made to the cabin. Sadly this is all we’ve got for the moment on the upcoming BMW M2, as the model in question is believed to be launched in 2016.
