Exclamation ///M2 Gran Tourer ?

Well... this is probably the last kind of BMW everyone would want (7 seater van). But I bet, some people would want one! And we all know anything with a ///M badge does sell well.

I'd like to hear what you guys think ?

It's a little thing, but the stock 2AT being fwd based means that for packaging reasons the front brake calipers are mounted in front of the rotor.

There's very little chance that a production M would be able to repackage the steering, suspension and drivetrain to be able to mount the brakes behind the front rotor.

I haven't had any coffee yet.

Cough, new vehicle segment, cough...
"The new BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer:
Unbeatable versatility and space for up to seven people.
The BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer sees BMW once again creating a new vehicle segment. Its signature feature is the impressive amount of space within its compact dimensions.

No one would buy this.

Anyone who would want a high performance family hauler would also be vain enough to never be seen in a van. That's what SUVs are for

You should make a poll of those responding, who has children and who does not.
Years ago I wouldn't even have felt the need to comment, but now having children, I would look into something like this.
Why limit families (or dads primarily) who need this type of vehicle to the Honda Odyssey or Mazda5?

And to the SUV comment, I had an X6 and my better half, being petite, quickly demonstrated getting the kids in and out and/or loading things was far from convenient (even had it lowered on KW in attempt to alleviate this).
Seeing her try to load the stroller in that trunk was something I dared not bare witness to more than once.
I am certain there are many that share this issue, along with the simple fact minivans are much more practical.
