Further Proof BMW M CSL Models Are Coming

BIMMERPOST NEWS
Further Proof That BMW M CSL Models Are Coming
176
COMMENTS

Over a year ago, former BMW M CEO Frank Van Meel shared that CSL models were coming to the BMW M lineup. Van Meel has since moved on to become the head of BMW's Total Vehicle development department, but BMW's M CSL model plans remain in place.

Seen below is a slide from a recent BMW M training presentation. The graphic shows the hierarchy of upcoming BMW models -- with M CSL models sitting at the very top. It's labeled as "Born for the racetrack" meaning CSL models will not concern themselves with the everyday suitability nature that the CS models feature, but can instead be completely track focused.

There's no indication in the presentation of which M models we should expect CSL versions of, but we've already reported that an M2 CSL is coming, and we would also expect that there will be M3 CSL and M4 CSL models at some point in the future at the very least.

The prices are thousands of dollars apart - so are they really "more or less the same"? It's just like any other vehicle - there are multiple trim levels that increase in price as more/better content is added.

Same reason Nespresso have 4 tiers of practically the same espresso machine - it drives more sales to the middle tiers. It's a marketing/business strategy that has worked for many companies throughout the years. X amount of people want the base and are happy, Y would pay a bit more for the perception of much different and "better", and Z would pay for the most exclusive version. Which would be the best seller? Y - the middle tier.

They should add "fiendish leasing residuals" to the marketing banner for the M Comp model.

What annoys me is the fact that the best models are released at the very end of the product’s lifecycle. Just release all lines at the same time and refresh them mid-cycle, like every other manufacturer...
