Think about it. Does it look ready? Given what we know already regarding launching an M car. Besides there are other M cars to consider- The BMW M6 Coupe and Cabrio and of course the M550d which will be shown @ Genf for European and World-wide premieres respectively.
Then we will have announcement of the final M3 edition which will be a cracker finale but not for all markets - although they might see something as a final edition but not the big tamale.
Maybe they meant Genf 2013 because that is more possible or they could unwrap the car again in Shanghai like the M5. Which is fitting as alot of M3 production is heading to China than ever before.
