The long-time rumored and upcoming BMW M2 is somewhat officially confirmed now. The Centernet system of U.S. dealerships now lists the BMW M2 with a production date of November, 15, 2015, a we have previously mentioned.
While production kicks off in November globally, the first deliveries will only take place in March 2016.
Under the hood, we believe the F87 M2 will not use the inline-six turbo from the new M3 and M4 – even detuned – but rather an updated version of the N55 TwinPower 3.0 liter engine (N55B30T0) with 370 horsepower. The M2 prototype runs with both a manual and automatic transmission so we expect both options to be available in the production series.
BMW will debut the M2 either this summer at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance or a month later at the 2015 Frankfurt Auto Show.
