Exclamation 2016 BMW M2 (F87) is a Go! Coming Late 2015 - Early 2016

BIMMERPOST NEWS
BMW M2 (F87) is a Go! Coming Late 2015 - Early 2016
438
COMMENTS

We've recently learned from multiple inside sources (who have been accurate in the past) that the BMW M2 is a go!

The M2 start of production is said to be scheduled for late Fall 2015, which places the first deliveries at the very end of 2015 or early 2016.

Confirming what we reported earlier, we've been told that the M2 will be powered by the N55 turbo inline 6 engine (N55B30T0), producing around 370-380 PS (365-375 HP).

BMW M reportedly also considered a "S48" engine for the M2, presumably an inline four cylinder turbo derived from the (future) B48 engine family. For whatever reason, this engine did not make the cut and we know now that the N55 inline six engine will power the M2.

The code nickname for the M2 is "pyrat2." Why pyrat2? If you recall, the 1M coupe's nickname was "pyrat."

The model code for the M2 will be F87. We do not expect a limited production cycle as the 1M experienced.

Note: the image used on the homepage in connection with this news is a rendering only.

Awesome!!!!!! But the N55.... Really?! Here's to hoping it's actually a twin turbo system like the N54 or the new M3/4 engine....

Not making an M2 would have been the dumbest decision ever by BMW AG. Ridiculous that this Is even a thread topic. OF COURSE there will be an M2. The only question that remains is will it outsell the M4?!

Ditto... Far more than the M3/4.... Especially if it looks anything like that red M2 render....

No surprise, but still great news. I would have expected a mid/late 2016 release, but late 2015 sounds better.

This could be a category defining car. I wonder if BMW will give it the chance to beat it's bigger siblings.

Likely in order to get it to market faster......


Agree. Perhaps an S48 M2 CSL ... That would be nice.

Exactly. BMW might be stealing from Peter (M3/M4 buyers) to pay Paul (now M2 buyers). Not sure it makes financial sense but I'm sure research may prove me wrong. Gotta tell you it's making me rethink the M3 also.

Horrible idea to release in the same year as the M4/M3 they should push as many units of those first then release
