BMW releases the first official teaser for the 2015 BMW M3 F80 sedan and M4 F82 Coupe.

Look for the reveal this Thursday, December 12!
BIMMERPOST member Kyle Shim recently spotted an M4 Coupe prototype and set off a foot chase while trying to capture video for us. Very entertaining watch, not only because of the great sounds coming from the M4, but because of the intense chase!
Only 3 months remain until the production BMW X4 (F26) is introduced to the world at the 2014 Geneva auto show, making it 11 months between the concept first debuted at the Shanghai auto show and the production debut next March.
Prototypes testing continues and we have some more photos to show you. Although the production X4 has already been caught undisguised recenty (photos), below are pics which also show the scale of the X4 compared to the X3, with which it shares a platform. Their exteriors may be different, but they share virtually the same interior styling (with the X4 less spacious inside).

BIMMERPOST moderator David visits the Pantheon Museum in Basel, Switzerland.
The building was smaller than I was expecting, but it still had plenty of cool cars (~80 or so) inside. This place would make a great detour on the way into Switzerland. They have a nice restaurant as part of the Museum and garage storage. From what I could tell most people use this hall to store their classic cars. But the “Pantheon” does own a lot of the cars on display. In fact they even rent out some of the “classics” for weddings or special events. You can even rent the place to hold a dinner or group event inside the museum.
Overall the Pantheon made for a nice stop on a great drive into … CONTINUED

The 2015 Mustang has just been revealed and Ford has revealed that it was benchmarked against the E90/E92 M3 during development. Together with its new independent rear suspension, will the Mustang give the upcoming M4 coupe a run for its money?

We’ve just spied some latest M4 and M3 prototypes. The M4 Coupe is seen in Sakhir Orange while the M3 is painted in Alpine White. Both cars feature the optional M Carbon Ceramic Brakes.
The gauges can be seen in the M4 coupe and they look to be the same as the ones we previously showed you (see photos reposted below), with a redline starting around 7500 RPM (rev limiter to kick in a bit after that).
Both cars will have their world premieres at the 2014 Detroit auto show in mid-January. Expect an online reveal shortly. Deliveries of both cars will commence in early Summer of 2014.
