With the all-new 2014 BMW 4-Series Coupe set to release in just a few months, we’re naturally already looking ahead to the high-performance BMW M4 variant. BMW’s product manager for small cars Matt Collins recently sat down with Top Gear to discuss the upcoming M3 Coupe replacement.
BMW USA has released official pricing for its first production electric car, the 2014 BMW i3. After months of speculation, we now know the i3 will sell at an MSRP of $41,350, not including $925 for destination. That price, which puts the i3 squarely between mass-market electrics like the Nissan LEAF at one end and the ultra-luxurious Tesla Model S Sedan at the other, is before any applicable Federal and state electric car tax credits, which will knock off another $7,500 to $10,000 for most buyers.
After the end of the 2013 model year, the legendary BMW M3 Coupe will no longer be offered for sale, presumably ever again. The two-door, sharp-handling Bimmer has been in production since the late 1980s and its now-classic E30 generation, but will be replaced some time next year with the all-new BMW M4 Coupe and Convertible. BMW needed a fitting send-off for the current-gen M3, and that car is the 2013 BMW M3 Lime Rock Park Edition.
For a limited time, BMW USA has expanded incentive programs on its 2013 328i and 528i sedans to now include $750 Conquest Cash good toward the purchase or lease of the critically acclaimed turbo-four-cylinder luxury sport sedans.
You’ve not long to wait to be able to take the all-new 2014 BMW 4-Series Coupe for a test drive. The Bavarians say the car will enter production in July, and will be all set to come to U.S. showrooms by the end of Summer 2013.
