Not much info is new here, but their renders are a fun look at what the next generation F30 and F32 3-series and M3 may resemble.

Consistent with what we have posted in the past, the front fascia features a more upright angle, consistent with BMW's current designs seen in the Z4, 5-series and 7-series. The F30/F32 3-series is also expected to be slightly larger in size, but with shorter front and back overhangs.

Next generation 3-series engine options will include a full range of turbo and naturally aspirated 6-cylinder motors, 4-cylinder motors, and possibly even a new 3-cylinder motor. The F30/F32 M3 is rumored to be lighter than the current M3 and will be powered by a twin turbo 6-cylinder engine, good for possibly 450hp approximately.

The F30 3-series sedan will make its world public debut at the 2012 Geneva Autoshow in March of 2012. The F32 coupe will be unveiled a year later in 2013. The F32 M3 coupe (indications are there will not be an F30 M3 sedan) is expected to debut sometime in 2014.
