No, it's going to be presented in September 2013 at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

Does anyone think the likely hood to see the 2 series coupe in Canadian dealer showrooms by this time next year is slim?

I've been looking at ordering a 1 series but the dealer said I would have to wait till march most likely, by then I'm thinking we'll have the details on the 2 series and I'll have regret my decision.

The render looks very nice.
If BMW builds this and offers it with a 3.0 NA or turbo then it WILL be my next BMW.
If not a 3.0, then at least a higher tune N20 2.0T, I'll still take it.

BUT, if they price this 4 door at the same pricing as a current 3 series, then no.
I came out of a 09 135i and now drive a 2013 335i Msport.
MSRP was $52K.

BTW, it's about freaking time BMW starts talking about the replacement.
It would be MUCH better if they started actually showing the new 2 door coupe as well.

Why does this have to be a "gran coupe"? Will there be a 1/2 series sedan also?
I ask because BMW "gran coupes" cost MORE than their 4 door starting points.
The 3 series gran coupe will be priced higher than the standard 3 series sedan.

I am interested in the engine options as well.

Because all of the indications and hints seem to be that the M2 or 2M will be a high strung 4cyl. See below:

It is known as the "Downsized" M because BMW M are investigating the concept of a completely reworked N20 based four cylinder in terms of the successor to the 1M offering the same recipe as before but with lower weight but still offering the entry to M ownership with the key of precision rather than outright power.
I think some buyers would have a tough time psychologically accepting that the 4cyl is better (more powerful) than the 6cyl. But I would welcome a Tri or Quad Turbo 4cyl for the model topping M2 Coupe. I think the N20 in the current 328 is a good base and since we won't see an M2 until around 2015 or so. The engineers have plenty of time to tinker.
