The new BMW M3 sedan and M4 Coupe will debut in summer of 2014, followed by an M4 Gran Coupe just a year later, but the ///M wizards have no plans to introduce a touring version of the M3.
So what would the F81 M3 Touring look like if it were to be designed? Rendering artists take a stab and show us the rear-end design of a potential M3 Touring. The photoshoped image builds atop the F80 M3 with the F31 Touring looks.
History says that the only M3 Touring ever built never saw the daylight. Buried deep in the secret garage at BMW M in Garching is an E46 BMW M3 Touring, an on-off car built by BMW that due to homologation issues and profitability has never made it into production.
The E46 BMW M3 Touring is powered by a naturally aspirated six-cylinder engine with a capacity of 3246 cc that produces 343 horsepower and runs to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just over 5 seconds.
