Would they dare to make an M1 better than an M3? Would an M1 in that case, be better than a current 135i with a tune and upgraded suspension?
I think it will have at least 330hp but it will shed around 80kg.

I think it will be called something like Motorsports 1 or 1xx tii M-sport or the like....but we are forgetting the important thing here..it does not matter what they call it, what matters is IF they will build it!

Although the M Coupe name was taken, I thought that might be an appropriate name.

The new Z4 is hardtop vert, so there won't be a coupe version of that happening, making it Z4M a possibility if they choose to make one (despite they said they are not).

As the original M Coupe is not really iconic as the original M1.

With the 2 series still in the pipeline in coupe and vert form, it might also be possible to have a M2, which would be more a niche model but definitely worthy of the M name.

The last thing they should do is called it a 135iM - that looks like someone has put a M badge on a 1er.

Why not just "1M" ? Or is that being really naive? I thought BMW was going to a single turbo anyway because of air standards?
