I am going to throw my estimate out that the next gen M3 will debut at autoshows next summer/fall and then show up in the US as a 2015 model.

I say this based on historical evidence...

US spec E36 M3 1995-1999 -5 yr run (6 in Europe 94-99)

2000 model year- No M3

US spec E46 M3 2001-2006 -6 yr run

2007 model year- No M3

US spec E92 M3 2008-2013 -6 yr run

2014 model year- No M3

Just my guess but its how BMW has done business in the past.

Jason
Good point but things are slightly different this time as the M3 sedan will debut first. So you're most certainly right that there won't be a 2014 M3/4 Coupe but there'll be a 2014 M3 Sedan.


Best regards,
