Did you know that Audi is planning to use 17 BILLION dollars within the next couple of years to try to become the biggest luxury car mfg in the world? Think about that, 17 billion. If BMW doesn't try to expand its line, what do you think will happen?
And FYI, as much as I love Porsche, let's cut the BS about heritage and all that shenanigans. You realize that they sell diesel Cayenne's right? Would that stop me from buying a 911? No.
My point is this: If BMW comes out with let's say the M2, which is the best thing since sliced bread (the M135i has been a success in my eyes), then go for it. Who cares of they make the X1 through X6? Who cares if the new M4 coupe is not named an M3? All these things are so irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
