The currently prevailing thought is that there will be an M3 sedan and M4 coupe for the next generation. Basically the M3 coupe becomes the M4 coupe. There wouldn't be a separate M3 coupe in this scenario.

This is based on the fact that the next generation "3 series coupe" (F32) will become the "4 Series Coupe" and M model designations follow the series upon which they're based -- in this case the 4 Series Coupe would hence give rise to the M4 Coupe.

The BMW board could always decide to break with that naming convention of course. But, without confirmation of that, we continue to reference the next "M3 coupe" as the M4 coupe.

Read through our past articles (@ on the upcoming F80 M3 sedan and F82 M4 coupe and you'll get a better understanding of the overall picture.

thanks good clarification info
