Lightbulb BMW 2 Series Coupe (F22) and Convertible (F23) Spy Photo and Information Compilation

SCHEDULE

• The 2 Series will begin production in November 2013, as a 2014 model year.
• 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.

Back from NYC but was not involved with the NYIAS.

The M235i is a little rocket , especially when let loose on freshly fallen snow. basically the M135i but with more direct chassis and dynamic involvement as per the other 2er models. It really loves to play and will let you. It is not a 1M but it is no less dynamically unfaithful but its potential shines for future M involvement.
Which brings us back to the M philosophy that the base car has to be outstanding to become a true M and there is no doubt about the M235i.

Did you see the pre-marketing has begun? We are familiarising people with the 2 and to show the genealogical aspect of 2 we go back in time to the 2002 in someway a spiritual ancestor to the current 1er Coupe and bringing it full circle with the forthcoming 2er.

The 2er will be filming in Los Angeles very soon.

Of course if the 2er does not float your boat as they say , there is exciting BMW news just two weeks away.

Scott, could the announcement possibly be the M2? I really hope so! I'm excited to see the M235i and what it has to offer.

If your going to announce the hatchback F20 is coming to US I will be very happy. Otherwise, I'll just get an M235 but a 4 dr would be nice.

Scott, I am in the market for a new car this year. Is there any chance in hell the M235i will come in at under $40k? I know there probably isn't any word on pricing yet, but what do you think? If it isn't to be under $40k I am probably going to for a Z4 3.0si Coupe (Roadster is still a possibility, but I would prefer a coupe). I am literally screaming at ya'll to take my money. Please help me help you!

I take it the m3 is what is going to be revealed in two weeks.

Wow. The rear headrests on the 2-series Cabrio look way bigger than on my current 128i.
Rear view in the cabrio is already a bit of a PITA. This isn't going to help..
But t's not a deal breaker.

Scott26 ... thanks for the pics. Apologies if its already been mentioned elsewhere but my biggest question is when will the M2 be launched? Actual year (not US launch year). Cause if its coming towards of the end of the 2 series life cycle like the 1M was for the 1 series then I'm gonna need to move onto another car in the interim. Thanks
