We’ve just had a chance at the 2014 NYIAS to sit down and discuss the all-new M3/M4 with the M3/M4 project manager, Michael Wimbeck (pictured) and M3/M4 product manager for BMW NA, Victor LeLeu.

Thanks to these two gentlemen, here are some hopefully enlightening answers.

Will M3/M4 be subject to gas guzzler tax?

Now that the 4 Series Gran Coupe has been revealed, the natural question that BMW enthusiasts are asking is – When (or will) we see a M4 Gran Coupe model?

Some sites have been reporting the above image as a leaked official photo, but as you can see below, it’s simply a photoshopped image of an official wallpaper image of the 435i Convertible (source) using styling elements from the M4 Concept. Hence the oddly angled front wheel.

The M4 will not hit dealers until next Summer, but the rumor mill is already churning for a lightweight track model.

If you needed any further convincing, now hear it from the BMW NA CEO himself (again). Speaking at an event that we are currently attending for the launch of the new X5 and 4 … CONTINUED

You’ve heard recent M4/M3 prototypes blasting around the Nurburgring [M4 vid] [M3 vid], now have a listen at how they sound around town.

MANUAL TRANSMISSION OR NOT?

As for today’s rumor out of Autoblog that there will be no manual transmission option for the M4, we submit contrary evidence in the form of: photos, videos, and VIN (options) information.
