Isn't this obvious? The M1 designation has been taken already. Can't use it again. So next logical name = 1M.

Maybe 30 years from now when cars are electric or hybrids, the M hybrid versions of the 3,5,6 will be 3///M, 5///M, 6///M.

I still think since the "A" version of the M1 has already been made, this should be called a "B"///M1.

Scott, please give us the name so this thread can become sensible again.

The Question you have to ask is what is the "Obvious name"?

Because you will be surprised...

This weekend is a glimpse into the Future for BMW...
From a design point of view of looking at the Past aswell as the Future.

And an interesting vision into electric mobility for the mid-level luxury market...

WTF? This is confusing.

No Confusion. The second paragraph leaves off from the M1.
In a few hours in Beijing , BMW will unveil two Concepts.
The BMW Echo is an Electric driven 5er Li and the big news of a new Concept Car which relates to the premium sport's luxury segment.

BMW will also introduce a Homage to the BMW 328MM at this weekends Villa D'este. All in all a very exciting weekend for BMW.

Thanks Scott

I was pleasantly surprised tonight at my dealer in Montreal..as I mentioned the next BMW I may purchase would be the 1M/M135/M1 or whatever it will be called if it will be a true M car..he looked at me oddly and said don't you mean the _______ . I was very , very surprised when a wink followed and asked me not to say a word.

I agree with that name.. and will not say a word.. All I will say is WOW!!

Wait, so are you telling me they came up with a name that isn't the M1 but is actually a good name? Hmmm...now I'm even more curious to see what it is.
