Car and Driver reports on some BMW M2 rumors. As reported by Jens Meiners:

The M version of the upcoming BMW 2-series coupe and thus the successor of the immensely good 1-series M coupe. Unlike its predecessor—which was rushed through development in record time, known internally as Project Pyrat—the 2015 M2 will undergo a longer gestation, allowing BMW to come up with a more polished package. Look for aggressive restyling, strongly differentiated from the M135i that’s available in overseas markets. The M2 will feature a unique front-end treatment, large air intakes, a wider track and wider rear fenders, as well as a rear spoiler and four exhaust finishers. The expected change in nomenclature from 1-series coupe to 2-series would fall in line with the rest … CONTINUED

We recently posted our first set of BMW M4 Coupe renders based off the 4 Series Coupe Concept, and we now bring you even more interpretations previewing the F82 M4, by resident artist E92Alpine328i.

We started with the 4 Series Coupe Coupe and incorporated what the M3/M4 prototype spy photos and videos have revealed so far, along with some speculation and imagination.

For more M3/M4 coverage see: http://www.bimmerpost.com/m3/f30m3/

To recap, here is an updated list of what we know about the F80/F82 so far:

Lighter than current M3
targeting E46 M3 weight (source)
More powerful than current M3
approximately same HP, but around … CONTINUED

We bring you the best look yet at the 2014 2 Series Coupe (F22), this time in red. We previously posted photos of the M235i coupe and other 2 Series coupes, but this is the first clear look we’ve had of the F22 from all angles.

These photos provide an excellent look at the headlight shape, which are much sportier and sleeker than the much maligned headlights of F20/F21 1 Series hatchback (with which the 2 Series lineup shares a platform). The photos do not yet reveal whether the headlights connect to the kidney grilles as it does on the F30 and upcoming models such as the X5 (F15) just spied today.

2 SERIES LINEUP

The 2 Series models will be built on the same RWD platform … CONTINUED

Following the 2 Series Convertible sightings, we bring you the first ever look at the highly anticipated BMW 2 Series Coupe (F22). Why is it highly anticipated? Many BMW enthusiasts hope that it will hark back to the days of a smaller, lighter, nimbler BMW coupe – a role which the 3 Series Coupe (now 4 Series Coupe) seems to have abandoned. The hope is that the 2 Series Coupe will be the E46 3 Series Coupe, incarnate.

M235i COUPE

Not only do we see the standard 2 Series coupe (228i, 235i or other model) on the truck, but the M235i coupe appears front and center! The BMW M235i coupe is expected to be the very first model of the BMW M Performance cars lineup to come … CONTINUED

Here are some updated 4 Series Gran Coupe renders, taking a more technical approach to predicting what it will look like by matching scale, sizing, lines, and shapes to those seen in our previously posted spy photographs.

Testing of the upcoming F32 4 Series coupe continues after the reveal of the 4 Series Coupe Concept and it has now advanced to FEP (Final Evaluation Phase) stage, as usually indicated by the sighting of a prototype in production colors.

After the great first look at the F32 production Sport Line model we posted last month, it almost seems we’re going backwards in terms of how revealing this test mule is. But, we also got very lucky with last months very revealing sighting.

But, we do get better looks at some parts of the production car with our new sighting. The front now bares portions of the M Sport bumper. The headlights here do not feature the newly styled angel eyes which extend to towards the … CONTINUED

Now that we know the general look of the upcoming 4 Series Coupe (from the revealed concept model), we can also take a better guess at what the BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe (F36) model may look like.

BIMMERPOST member philip has put together this render for us, based off the 4 Series Coupe Concept.

As with the 6 Series Gran Coupe (to the 6 Series Coupe), we can expect the 4 Series Gran Coupe to share the head and tail lights with the rest of the upcoming 4 Series lineup. Codenamed as the F36, the 4 Series Gran Coupe will be positioned and priced in the 3/4 Series lineup just as the 6 Series Gran Coupe is positioned in the 5/6 Series lineup (in between the … CONTINUED

We’ve put together some renders of what the BMW M4 Coupe (F82) may look like, starting with the 4 Series Coupe Coupe and incorporating what the M3/M4 prototype spy photos and videos have revealed so far, along with some speculation/imagination.

We’ve given the M4 the 1M+M6 style front bumper spied on the F80 M3 prototypes, but the M4 bumper will likely look somewhat different. We’ve also incorporated the M sideskirts, wide fenders and hood bulge spied in the prototype photos. It may also get double slatted grilles with M4 badge and a shaped carbon fiber roof, both like on the M6 Coupe.

We’ve always projected that the successor to the current M3 coupe would be called the M4 coupe, to reflect the fact that the 4 Series coupe was coming. Now, not only has the 4 Series been revealed and confirmed, but Car and Driver claims that BMW has confirmed the switch to the BMW M4 badge for the coupe version of the next M3.

The M4 coupe is designated as the F82 and the M3 sedan as the F80.
