BMW has never had an all-wheel drive M, and I doubt they would do it. As great as it can be when done right, the classic rear wheel drive setup has its own benefits in terms of steering feel, lower weight, balance and fun. I have heard no rumblings of the possiblity.

As far as debut, Frankfurt in September would be about right, but it's only held every other year so none this year. I'm sure BMW is going to keep this as close to their vest as possible.
