Musical chairs for the next generation M3′s powerplant continues. If Autoexpress’ latest rumor is accurate, the F30/F32 M3 is expected to feature a tri-turbo 3.3L 6-cylinder motor. One of the turbos would be powered by electricity (not exhaust gases as with traditional setups). The motor is speculated to produce 450bhp.

The F30/F32 M3′s body would make use of CFRP to keep its weight down. Dr. Friedrich Nitschke, BMW M’s new managing director also revealed the following to Autoexpress regarding the next gen M3: “There will … CONTINUED

We bring you the first ever live action look at the F30 335i testing on the Nurburgring.  Without lap times it’s difficult to know exactly how well it handles the famed track, but the mule seems to zip around the track with great composure, little roll, and good speed. Check out the full video inside.

It’s been months since the F30 sedan has been spotted testing on the Nurburgring, but this F30 335i sedan was just spotted today making testing runs on the ring. This is the first space gray F30 prototype to be spied.

The last time the F30 was on the Nurburgring, it was in much heavier camouflage, but now appears in the latest level of camouflage and with premium wheels, first seen on the recent white F30 photos.

The F30 3-series sedan will begin production in November 2011, shortly after … CONTINUED

The next generation BMW 3-Series sedan is only months away from full reveal, and in typical BMW fashion the camo striptease continues during vehicle testing.

The overall level of camo on the cars appears to remain the same as previous photos demonstrated, however with better lighting and angles, a more realistic picure of the F30 appears before our eyes. The true “mini F10″ look of the car is much more obvious, especially when looking at the headline photo. That is to say a mini F10 5-Series with … CONTINUED

We bring you a realistic look at the upcoming 2012 3-series F30 sedan’s rear view, revealed by reference to real life spy photos and using our talented artists’ skills. What’s revealed is a not-revolutionary, yet stately and handsome rear.

The F30 3 series will feature rear tail lights in the classic L-shape, lit by LED light bars. The trunk will feature a very slight integrated bill, toned down from the E90 3-series’ more aggressive trunk bill. All F30 3-series have been spotted with the same rear lower … CONTINUED

BMW F30 3-series continues testing and a black test mule was recently photographed. This prototype wears the same camouflage level as the recently spotted F30 sedans, but its black paint set against the camouflage tape shows off the car’s lines better than a lighter color.

Squared off LED halos adorn the front headlights on this particular model, and overall the front headlights look to have a stylish and aggressive shape, as on the F10 5-series. Low and wide kidney grilles sit at the front at a sleek … CONTINUED

We’re able to share that the F30 3-series sedan will begin production in November 2011, shortly after the E90 3-series stops production. The F30 2012 Model Year will run until June 2012, upon which point it will switch to the 2013 Model Year.

As the schedule shows, the F30 3-series will come as 328i and 335i models. The 328i will most certainly be powered by the ‘N20′ turbo 4-cylinder inline engine (as found in the Z4 28i, details) and the 335i by a turbo 6-cylinder inline motor. … CONTINUED

We bring you what we believe are the most realistic F30 3-series sedan renders yet, based directly off the latest and most revealing F30 spy photos. The F30 sedan adopts BMW’s current design language, with a sleeker sloping hood with more upright and widened kidney grilles placed below the hood line. The entire front fascia is more front leaning and shark-like. The F30 features double side character lines, as seen in the render. The side view mirrors will feature turn signals, like the just revealed … CONTINUED

It’s usually the strange looking camouflaged prototype cars which get the attention in public, but that may not be the case here where one of our members in a Ferrari 458 caught an F30 3-series sedan prototype out testing in the canyons of Malibu, California.

The next generation M3 is still at least 3 years from its debut, but it’s never too early for speculation, particularly about its powerplant. While the current E9x M3 is powered by the marvelous high-revving V8 engine (S65), it’s been widely speculated that that the next generation M3 will return to using a 6-cylinder engine. Emissions regulations have forced the move, much like the new upcoming F10 M5 getting the more efficient S63 V8 Twin-turbo engine instead of continuing to use the iconic V10.

So far so … CONTINUED

Here are some new renders of the F30 3-series sedan, by German publication Auto Test. These are some of the more attractive renders we’ve seen and are clearly based off the F10 5-series, but with some attention to paid to previous F30 spy photos.

The rear 3/4 view is particular attractive. However, the renders are missing some new styling features revealed in the most recent F30 spy photos, such as the double character lines.
