Always forgotten is the timeline.

The 1M Coupe was developed under Dr. Kay Segler who also commenced work on the BMW M3 and BMW M4 and F15 X5M.
New current M chief is responsible for the completion of the new M6 Gran Coupe the M3 and M4 aswell as the Competition Pack for the M5 , but also Has started work on the X6M , M2 and X4M and another M Project.
The current M5 and M6 were developed by the current BMW US CEO Ludwig Willisch and completed under Dr. Kay Segler.
The M850i is evidence that BMW have got their mojo back when it comes to dynamic sports cars...
