Houston M Club began when a group of friends from M3POST went to MSR Houston for a track event. Since their first event in May of 2011, their events have grown from five cars and sharing the track with motorbikes to almost 50 cars and renting the entire track exclusively for the Club. In a short span of two years, Houston M Club has become one of the most recognized car clubs in the Greater Houston Area.
As they wrap up our 2012 track season, they take the opportunity to thank M3POST and the club’s members for making this Club possible.

The F80 M3 is continuing its development at the Nurburgring and we’ve captured it on video once again. We’ve also compiled our recent F80 M3 and F82 M4 videos below.

We’ve put together this latest set of renders of the 2015 M4 Coupe (F82) based on recent spy photos.
We started with a photo of the F82 M4 right outside of the BMW M testing center at the Nurburgring and began peeling away at the camouflage based on details which can be discerned from this particular prototype, other F82 M4 and F80 M3 mules, as well as our other imagination and speculation.
What you see is a sleek M4 coupe with a more fastback shape than the current M3 coupe. Here’s some render highlights:
• Sportier and sleeker kidney grilles (as seen on previous F32 4 series coupe prototype).

• Similar front apron/bumper styling as the F80 M3 … CONTINUED
