Smile when will we see the new M3?

Hey people,

2012 Q2? close to 500hp? twin turbo? sedan and coupe?
Really looking forward to it.

I thought it was supposed to be introduced as a 2014 model, so I would imagine October/November 2013 (a little over 2 yrs away)

I think that is optimistic.

The new F32 won't even debut until early 2013. It is unlikely the M3 version will be available less than one year later. In fact, 1.5+ years after introduction is probably more likely, see the timeline of the F10 intro vs. M5 version.

I would say there little chance you can buy a new F32 M3 before the end of 2014.

I wouldn't think till like 2013? They still have to release the M5, M6, and then we might start seeing stuff about the next gen M3?

Not even close. The concept will probably first be seen in Geneva 2014, seven years after the last one:

Maybe you can if you live in Taiwan like the OP. But then maybe not either - I'm not so familiar with M3 release timeline in Asia and such.

For the US, though, you are most likely correct.

Irvine BMW has a pilot production 2013 F32 M3 demo right now! It's Sienna Sapphire Metallic over Dijon leather and looks simply amazing. I only got a short test drive though, as there was actually a line of local M3 owners waiting for a chance to demo and place our deposits. My first impression is that the new engine is a BIG relief! It is an inline-six with a roots-type supercharger and two small KKK exhaust turbos. It builds boost instantly and redlines at 8,250 rpm with a somewhat muted howl (the big drawback to the turbos is that they stifle intake and exhaust sounds)

Anyway, I decided not to drop a deposit on one, because they are asking $88,990 base and that's a bit too steep for me. For that price I'd rather have four Toyota Camrys.

P.S. They went back to the single-clutch SMG II transmission because it is the only one that can handle the 470 LbFt of torque produced by the new motor.

Sincerely,
-Sean

Yeah, imagine a space frame with a Camry at each corners. What is that, 600HP collectively?
