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?
BMW has made no official statement regarding a possible M4 Gran Coupe. We did hear from a trusty source several months back not to expect an M variant of the 4 Series Gran Coupe. That said however, even the best laid plans are subject to change. Could BMW resist making a M4 Gran Coupe if eventual sales success for the 4 Series Gran Coupe makes a business case for the M4 Gran Coupe? We shall see…

We’ve just learned from our source that BMW has officially approved the production BMW i8 Spyder for a late 2015 introduction.

Mechanically, the i8 Spyder will share the i8 Coupe’s powerplant and drivetrain. Stylistically, it will be identical to the i8 Spyder Concept, but with the production styling aspects of the i8 Coupe.

The production F82 M4 Coupe is set to be shown this Thursday, after which we’ll begin to see its (and the F80 M3′s) marketing campaign gain momentum. As with recent new M models, one of the ways we should see the M3 or M4 (or both) get some publicity is in the role of a Safety Car for MotoGP, with which BMW M is a partner. BMW M is currently in its 15th season as the “Official Car of MotoGP” and provides the official Safety Cars to the premier motorcycle racing series.
Recent M cars serving as official Safety Cars include the M6 Gran Coupe, M6 Coupe, M5 Sedan and 1M Coupe.
