Look at that F32 4 series coupe spy pic in the article. It's spot on in size and shape!!

Being able to see the new M3 coupe 2+ years ahead of its release would be sooooo cool. Worth the risk IMO

2010 135i  [3.00]
2004 WRX  [4.00]
This is def not a six series. It has the rims seen on the prototype M3.

This leads me to believe it is either an M3, or an M4.

Because of the style of body, from what we can see, this looks like a coupe.

Even more interesting is the hood has a bulged area like a power dome. I bet money this is an M4 and it has a power dome.

I bet its all "swirled" up, but still, here is what someone needs to do...
-Buy some homeless guy a ticket
-Have homeless guy not enter with you
-Have your camera ready
-Have the homeless guy pull off the cover
-Snap pics, walk away
-Homeless guy gets thrown out
-Act like you have no idea who the homeless guy is
-Continue your tour
-Post pics on bimmerpost.com

Why can't someone just peek and let us know? What's the worst they can do? If that was near me I would have already

If they reveal this soon (when is the tarp supposed to be removed?)...
Does it mean the M4 will be released before the 4-series?

Honestly, i'm more curious to see what the F32 4er looks like, b/c the M4 will be an aggressive take on the regular 4er. Once, we see the F32, we can more easily speculate what an F82 will look like.
I think the assumption that the execs or internal folks who are (were) getting a peak at this car have already seen the F32, and this is simply the next car on deck for approval/review/circle-jerking.

The "last" of the V8s? you mean the ONLY V8 a M3 will have ever have? you can still get an M5/M6 if you love the V8. I do love my V8, but its just added weight that is not needed, I look forward to the new turbo 6s and 4s, and by that I mean the M3, RS3, CLA AMG (because I am pretty positive the next gen C63 will get the new V8 since the SLK AMG got it and the RS5 has a V8).

0-60 in the very low 4s with lower weight (better handling) and 25MPG when not driving it hard, count me in!
