This was posted from Scott - that probably means - ///M2.
If it is really going to be so, it means that the next 1 Series Coupé and Convertibel are going to be called 2 Series Coupé and Convertible. And this can also mean that the 3 Series Coupé and Convertible will be called 4 Series Coupé and Convertible, and of cours the M car will be an M4. Anyway who cares about the name. Todays M3 E92 has nothing to do with the first M3 E30. The next M3 will be even more comfortable and get FI. Very far from the M3 E30 that was a NA I4. I think the next M2 F22 will be much closer to the M3 E30 with its 2.0L I4 Turbo. All this makes sense. The BMW Supercar will then just be the Z10 Eco-Supercar by BMW AG and not M GmbH, and for this reason not called M10 or so. All this makes sense.
