Now, I would not be surprised to see a M5 GT and M3 GT with AWD in the future. However, for M coupes and sedans, I really doubt it.
Strictly speaking, an entirely new M model with AWD wouldn't be an "all-wheel drive suprise" (Biermann's words). I think it's a good idea as long as BMW leaves its customers a choice. Some are willing to lose some agility for AWD, others aren't. Cater both groups' needs and all are happy.
