Cool Spied: More BMW M4 Convertible and Coupe Prototypes

BIMMERPOST NEWS
Spied: More BMW M4 Convertible and Coupe Prototypes
22
COMMENTS

The F82 M4 coupe and F83 M4 convertible continue testing and we continue sharing pics with you.

Once it's fully revealed, we will see an M4 convertible which shares the M4 coupe's styling (and mechanicals), save for the roofline and trunkline. To give you an idea for how the M4 convertible will look once all the camo comes off, check out our production M4 renders below.

The one clear difference is that the M4 convertible features a different roof -- in the form of a non-carbon fiber folding hardtop. It will operate and fold in the same manner we're used to seeing on the E93 M3 convertible.

As for the M4 coupe, we have all effectively seen the production M4 in the form of the M4 Concept (minus the carbon fiber front lip, rear diffuser and exhaust tips, as well as the black kidney grilles - which we believe will all become available as part of the M Performance Parts catalog for the M4). Bonus video below of an F82 M4 powersliding around a turn at the Nurburgring.

Technical specs have not yet been released for the M3/M4, but we'll cover the first details in a little over a week. But, we do know some things for now... see our details/info/spy pics compilation.

The production M4 coupe will have its debut alongside the new M3 at the Detroit NAIAS show in mid-January. The M4 convertible will debut in late 2014 - early 2015.

Somebody at BMW needs to be fired if the convertible has that terrible silver window trim again.

Cars continue to look menacing though, and much better than the current M3 as much as I hate to say it.

can't wait to know more about the tech. for instance will the engine have that rumoured electrically driven "turbo" charger to eliminate the lag or will it be only a conventional turbo motor?

Not sure what the obsession is over chrome trim i.e. kidney grilles and window trim

The rear fenders of the M4 still look pretty wide to me. That black M4 in the first image looks aggressive.

You can almost make out gauge cluster in pic 2 BUT not quite...FAK! I'll say that it looks much closer to E92 than F10 M5. Previously gauges were identical between E60 and E92.

That's not the production gauge... That's the standard 3/4 series cluster

In one of the interior spy shots you can see the needle going way past 7k but that's the end of that particular gauge
