The German auto publication Auto Zeitung publishes a rendering of the next generation BMW M3. Due out in 2014, the new BMW M3 is built under the codename F32 and will be using the platform of the upcoming 3 Series.
According to BMW sources, the new BMW M3 models will be available only in Coupe and Convertible variants and, but ongoing discussion around a potential Touring model or other variant, are continuing.
While most of these design interpretations are still in the early stages, the rendering from Auto Zeitung showcases a sporty M3 Coupe, but with many design lines still being too aggressive nor matching the M3’s core idea.
For an enhanced artistic impression, the rendering artist added the CS Concept wheels, a common trait in many renderings.
The 2014 BMW M3 is rumored to drop the 420-hp V-8 and replaced by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight six producing around 450-hp. Next generation 3 Series will be introduced in 2012.[Source: Auto Zeitung via Germancarforum ]
