Few cars on the road have the capability to stir the soul like the BMW M3. The perfect blend of everyday practicality and true sports car performance, the M3 pushes the envelope with each new generation. The car you see here is the next-gen model, caught hot weather testing in Death Valley, California by the eagle-eyed spy photographers at CAR Magazine. Despite some dizzying camo, you can clearly make out the deep-set intakes, prominent hood bulge, quad-exit exhaust, widened stance and huge brakes that signify all things M.

The next M3 will return to six-cylinder power with an all-new mill displacing around 3.3 liters and likely featuring three turbochargers for 414-450 horsepower. Other than RWD performance and the presence of manual and DSG gearboxes, that’s about all we know. Look for BMW’s latest and greatest in showrooms in late 2013 or early 2014.

New BMW M3 Coming Soon…in Sedan Form

October 28th, 2011

New BMW M3 Sedan Will Come First Coupe Convertible Header

Industry sources have revealed that unlike every M3 before it, the next-generation M3 will debut in sedan form rather than as a two-door coupe. Indeed the M3 sedan is reportedly the only version there will be at all. No, BMW hasn’t lost its mind. The new 3-Series coupe and convertible models and their two-door M successors will be renamed the 4-Series and M4, respectively.

This brings up an interesting question about release dates. BMW will likely release the 4-Series at the end of 2012 or in early 2013, around a year after the new 3-Series sedan. Is it possible the new M3 sedan will see the light of day around the same time, rather than at the end of 2013 or in early 2014 as first expected? We’ll keep you posted.
