F22 2 Series coupe (228i) prototype spotted in SoCal. First prototype sighting in the US.

Admin edit:

The M235i coupe (315 HP) is already confirmed for the US (see VIN details and spy photos). Production will begin in November 2013 in the Leipzig plant, for an 8 month first-model-year production run (until June 2014). There will be no 235i model in the US or elsewhere, as the M235i will take its place in the lineup.

The M235i will be joined by the 228i coupe in the US. The 228i coupe will also begin production this November. The production 2 Series will be revealed in the Fall, with its public debut potentially coming at the 2013 Frankfurt auto show in September).

As the VIN thread linked above shows, Europe will see additional models, including a 220i, 225i, 218d, 220d and 225d.
