We’re coming to you live from the 2012 Paris motor show and our first car covered is the BMW M135i 3-door hatchback. This model had its world public debut at the 2012 AMI show in May, but its showing here at the 2012 Paris motor show represents its biggest audience yet.

Inside are the the vitals on this newest model to the BMW M Performance Automobiles lineup. The F21 M135i will unfortunately not make it to North America.

Here’s a video summarizing the M135i hatchback [official thread] [reviews].

Although the M135i will not be available in the North American market, it’s recently been rumored that a M235i coupe (2 Series coupe version of the M135i) will be the first M Performance Automobile to be introduced to the US market. Keep in mind that a M235i coupe model will not be a replacement for an expected future M2 coupe model – the successor to the E82 1M Coupe. Instead, it’s a model which can be viewed … CONTINUED

Automotive News has also published a report supporting the claim that BMW has plans to launch a 1 Series [2 Series] sedan. They claim that BMW will bring the RWD small sedan in 2015 to rival the future Audi A3 and Mercedes CLA sedans, both expected as early as next year.

According to them, company sources say the growing dimensions of the 3-series sedan led to the decision to build this sedan.

Ever since the introduction of the first M Performance cars (the new BMW model lineup slotting between the M models and regular series cars) earlier this year, we’ve been hearing and BMW has been hinting at such cars for the North American market.

Now that the first petrol model, the M135i (official info | reviews), has debuted, Autoweek reports that the M235i coupe will be the first M Performance model to arrive in the U.S. and Canada. The report states that the M235i coupe will start sales … CONTINUED

But, it makes for some fun speculation and certainly paints a rough map of what potential future models we may see out of Munich.

Recent Trademark List:

X2, X4
M1, M2, M7, M10
2 Series Active Tourer

We previously reported on a possible four-door 2 series sedan / gran coupe. Autocar has now joined the rumormill on such a potential 4 door model.

The report claims that BMW has plans for or is discussing a RWD sedan based off the current 1 Series platform that will target the US and China markets in particular. Autocar calls it a 1 Series, but in all likelihood it would be called a 2 Series. If you remember, only the hatchbacks and upcoming FWD models are likely to … CONTINUED

A new BMW 2 series coupe render has been posted, courtesy of Autoexpress. Although this render may give us an idea as to the general shape, size, and proportions, the BMW 2-series coupe is expected to have a significantly different look (particularly the front end) than the F20 1-series hatchback upon which this render is clearly based.

There will be no next generation 1-series coupe and convertible, as they will take on the 2-series badge instead. The 2 series coupe is expected as … CONTINUED

One of the most anticipated BMW models in the next few years will include the BMW 2-series coupe/convertible (which will replace the 1-series coupe/convertible). With the 1M coupe receiving overwhelming praise, its successor, the BMW M2 (based off 2 series coupe) will surely receive even more attention.

Here’s the latest of what we’ve recently learned from a trusty source regarding the upcoming M2 and 2-series:

- The M2 has not yet officially been approved for production (and may not be officially approved until the 2-series commences production)
- Intent … CONTINUED

Autoexpress comes in with some exciting confirmation from BMW M GmbH’s new managing director Dr. Friedrich Nitschke – the M2 is in the works. But that’s not all… a ‘revolutionary’ new M3 is in development and discussions are underway about a possible Lamborghini Aventador rival supercar!

The M2 will be based off BMW’s F22 platform (Autoexpress uses ‘F21′) and will be based on the upcoming 2-series / 2 series coupe (BMW has plans to rebadge its small coupe model as 2-series beginning the next generation) due in … CONTINUED

We’d like to make clear that the previous announcement of the 1M coupe’s end of production in December 2011 is specific for the US market. The production schedule we refer to for such info is US-market specific. Whether the 1M remains in production beyond that for the other markets remains to be seen.
