Interview with Ian Robertson for UK Broadsheet.
There have been rumors that the new Coupe and Cabrio will be carrying a 4-series badge. What does this mean for the M3?
"The M3 is enormously important to us" I cannot confirm the rumours, but whatever the badges on the bootlid, there will be an M3 Model.
Note- Whatever the badges. and There will be an M3 model instead of model(s).
If BMW makes the ///M3 a sedan and ///M4 a coupe that is major FAIL. Sorry, but the best ///M sedan is the ///M5, the ///M3 has always been the flagship coupe. I mean, there hasn't always been a sedan, it seems like it comes and goes every other year model year.
If they label the coupe as an ///M4 I'm gonna blow my top. Seriously, why does BMW think DIFFERENT = BETTER. As much as holding on to the past is no good, just chucking it aside isn't either.
But who am I kidding, I'm sure most of the ///M buying public has no idea the history of ///M or even what size engine is under their hoods, nor do they care. Sad really.
