BMW’s development boss has revealed the company is unlikely to offer a competitor to the Audi A3 Sedan and Mercedes CLA.

Speaking to Wards Auto, Dr. Herbert Diess [BMW board member] said the company sees little need for a sedan smaller than the 3-Series in the United States. He went on to say he sees a “high risk of substitution” where customers would buy the smaller car – presumably the 1-Series sedan or 2-Series Gran Coupe – instead of a more expensive model like the … CONTINUED

G30 the BMW
Yes, we are already entering the G chassis realm, having very swiftly passed through the F series cars. The current BMW 5-Series is the F10 and the upcoming next generation 5-Series will be the G30.

35up
According to Car Magazine’s sources, BMWs next generation platform is called 35up. What it basicly means is that everything from the 3-series/5-series and up will be based on this shared super platform. Utilizing the increasing mix of elements including steel, aluminum and certainly CFRP, weight is expected to … CONTINUED

The timescale works absolutely in favour with the new BMW M3 and BMW M4 Coupe because a gap of two years allows establishment and progress. By this time there will be the Competition Package for the M3 and M4 and there will also be progress for the two cars in an additional specification.

Then you have to think about the next M5 and its leap in technology , lightweight and power increase to just over 600 PS. Granted the M5 won’t be on the market … CONTINUED

Autoexpress reports that a BMW insider they spoke to at the M235i launch in Las Vegas last week let on that the BMW M2 “makes a lot of sense.” In addition, a “source” confirmed that a road-going version of the M235i Racing (a track-only customer race car) was considered for production, but this plan was nixed so as not to “step on the toes of something else higher up the range.” The source added that this refers to a new M car. The article … CONTINUED

Testing on the second generation BMW X5 M continues while the prototypes shed some camouflage. This is the first red F85 X5 M we’ve seen and as with earlier prototypes, it wears the signature M components – huge front air intakes, more aggressive sideskirts and rear diffuser, blue M brakes, and cross drilled rotors (the first for any X5 model). We also have a better look at the quad exhaust pipes which, unlike the current X5 M, feature a new angled design (same as … CONTINUED

One of the unknowns surrounding the BMW X4, which will make its debut at the 2014 Geneva show in March, is whether it will be offered in a full blown M model (i.e. X4 M) like its bigger cousins – the X5 M and X6 M. Early indications have been no.

But a new report suggests that although a full fledged M model may not be in BMW’s plans, a diesel M Performance Model may be. This is according to statements made in a recent … CONTINUED

The Active Tourer is one of several new FWD vehicles which BMW will use to push into new segments. Ian Robertson, BMW AG’s board member for sales and marketing said: “With … CONTINUED

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 real M4 convertible should not be much different than the photoshopped image however, as it will share exterior styling with the production M4 Coupe, which will adopt its styling from the M4 Concept.
