A rendering artist showcases what a future BMW M2 could look like. The rumored successor to the 1M has yet to be confirmed by BMW and despite early reports of a new “baby-M” coming to market in 2015, it is uncertain if BMW will be able to slot the M2 between the M235i and M3/m4 models.

Earlier this year a source close to the brand mentioned that a BMW M2 will undergo a longer development phase. With an aggressive package, the M2 will strongly differentiate itself from the M135i hatch and the M235i Coupe model. The M2 is said to sport an unique fascia with large air intakes, wider track and wider rear fenders, as well as a rear spoiler and the signature M four-exhaust pipes.

As expected, power would be sent to the wheels via the rear-wheel drive platform. Even though in the past we have heard of rumors around a four-cylinder banger powering the M2, an upgraded version of the 3.0 liter TwinScroll turbocharged engine might be used. Total output? Somewhere around 340-360 horsepower.

BMW M2 could compete against the Audi RS3, Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG and Volkswagen Golf R.

    wonderful looking car , since its rwd it needs more power well above 400hp to compete with all wheel drive competition , if they make it xdrive , the better , so much more power than competition , the competition is bigger and badder than ever ,

    bmw seldom looks what we want it to look. the new m4 is a huge car, and pretty glitzy looking. I’d prefer a more clean looking cars not the new trend when a bmw m modell must look like it drove through a pepboys with a magnet attached to it.

    the aggressive style is ok, but don’t overdo it. This M2 rendering is actually not bad, too much glitz on the front bumper though. clean that up a little and you got a pretty decent looking car.

    the m4 and this m2 rend. front bumper reminds me of the early 2000′s when every rice burner had these gaping bumpers.
