New M1 series??

Anyone know any details of a M1 upcoming?? There are some reports of its development, with the old E46 M3 six cylinder engine and similar raw feel. I would be very interested, as I miss my 2006 E46 comp pkg M3 but like some of the newer features. I do not want E92 M3. Next BMW purchase spring 2010.

Not gonna happen for a couple of reasons.

1) the name M1 belongs to the legendary M1, the first M car I believe. It was gorgeous, looked like a Ferrari (I believe the designer actually came from either ferrari or Lambo) and was top of the line, exclusive, pricey... the exact opposite of what an M based off the M series would be (entry level, cheap, affordable, ubiquitous).

2) BMW already went very M with the 135: it comes standard with M cosmetic treatments and has an optional LSD in the accessories department.

If anything, BMW will release the tii concept instead of an M1, but its uncertain whether or not that will actually happen. My theory is that BMW will offer all of the goodies of the tii as accessories for the 135 sooner or later.

Here's the M1:

bmw first subcontracted the M1 to an italian company i believe. then things went bad and bmw took over. however the exterior design remained very italian.

Why would BMW denote the current 1 series with that name, given the fact they have a system of nomenclature that describes each series by numeral, with the M car following?? I hope you are wrong, but I see your point.
