It’s not yet known what engine will power the upcoming BMW M2, but it’s been speculated to be either an inline 4 turbo turbo or inline 6 cylinder turbo.

Since it’s still quite ways off, we thought it’d be fun to start an official poll to see where the engine preference really stands among our members.

OK, it’s not truly being hooned, but a M235i coupe prototype is seen doing doughnut patterns in an empty lot as part of its testing. As a result, we get a great live look at all the various angles of the car – a bit like the car being on a rotating auto show display. We also get a good listen at its exhaust and engine sounds.

There is also a brief look at the F22 2 Series Coupe against the F30 3 Series Sedan, for … CONTINUED

BMW M CEO Friedrich Nitschke gave some insight into certain aspects of future M models when speaking recently to Autocar.

AWD vs RWD

While current non-SUV M models all remain RWD, as horsepower numbers climb for each successive generation of models, the question has arisen whether future models would benefit from AWD xDrive offerings, to help with traction and getting all that power down to the ground effectively; especially considering the AWD offerings from competitors – such as the E63/CLS63 AMG 4Matic and upcoming RS6/RS7 Quattro models.
