Thumbs up Official BMW M2 thread

We've recently learned from multiple inside sources (who have been accurate in the past) that the BMW M2 is a go!

Source: Bimmerpost.com
The M2 start of production is said to be scheduled for late Fall 2015, which places the first deliveries at the very end of 2015 or early 2016.

Confirming what we reported earlier, we've been told that the M2 will be powered by the N55 turbo inline 6 engine (N55B30T0), producing around 370-380 PS (365-375 HP).

BMW M reportedly also considered a "S48" engine for the M2, presumably an inline four cylinder turbo derived from the (future) B48 engine family. For whatever reason, this engine did not make the cut and we know now that the N55 inline six engine will power the M2.

The code nickname for the M2 is "pyrat2." Why pyrat2? If you recall, the 1M coupe's nickname was "pyrat."

The model code for the M2 will be F87.

RENDER ONLY

Sweet! Great timing too.


I'll be able to see how the M4 shakes out with issues/mods, see the production M2, and likely know what's going to happen with a M4 ZCP before making a final decision.

will be interesting to see how the market reacts. I had already pulled my order today based on other reasons that have nothing to do with either car, but I am very surprised that the car will be produced as early as late 2015.

It'll probably weigh more than the M3

Default Re: Breaking News: BMW M2 is a Go!

For me it's all about a few specific things:


Weight - will they go to the same degree as the M3/M4?

Engine design - shared or more unique with a focus on removing lag entirely like the M3/M4? Single turbo or twin?

Looks - as good as the M4?



If it nails those, then game on.
