Reason should be to hold 2013 free for the complete new 4er series!
That sounds extremely aggressive to me, Uli. I'm not saying it can't happen, but with the F12/F13 M6 known to be coming next year, I have to be a little skeptical about an F80 M3 coming too. I know, I know, the 1M and M5 both came this year, but the 1M used an existing engine, not to mention plenty of E9x M3 parts. M3 is known to be using a brand new engine.
I just don't see them packing all of that into one year. But we'll see.
