• Online reveal will come in October 2013.
• World public reveal at Detroit NAIAS 2014 (January).
Follow our 2 Series news, coverage, and updates @ http://www.bimmerpost.com/2-series/


2 SERIES INFO / RUMORS / SPECULATION

• M235i Coupe will beat 1M Coupe around Nurburging - source
• M235i M Performance Parts will feature limited slip differential (LSD) - source


POTENTIAL 2 SERIES LINEUP

The 2 Series models will be built on the same RWD platform as the current 1 Series hatchbacks (F20/F21) and is expected to spawn the following lineup:
• 2 Series Coupe (F22) - confirmed.
• 2 Series Convertible (F23) - confirmed.
• M235i M Performance Automobile - confirmed, with xDrive (see prototype VIN info).
• No 235i (replaced by M235i in lineup).
• Rest of 2 Series model lineup also previewed - see VIN info
• 2 Series Gran Coupe (four door coupe) - still speculative [more info].
• 2 Series Gran Sports Tourer (Hyundai Veloster type vehicle) - still highly speculative [more info].
• M2 Coupe - successor to current 1M coupe, recently rumored to be 4 Cylinder [more info] (though we have our doubts as the M235i is likely to share the M135i's six cylinder inline engine and our photographer confirms clearly hearing a 6 cylinder in the M235i prototype).
• M2 Gran Coupe - M version of 2 Series Gran Coupe to compete with Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG and Audi S3 Sedan; still speculative [more info].
Also see the latest summary of the potential 1 Series, 2 Series, M2, Z1, Z2, and X1 lineup.
