BMW has released the BMW M2

The BMW M2 is now a reality. Coming in 2016, the BMW M2 takes the 2 series platform and gives it ‘M’ performance.  The car comes with 365 hp and 343 lb-ft of torque. You can get a 6-speed manual or DCT and weight comes in a 3,400 lbs. So the question we need to ask – is this the real BMW M3? The current BMW M3/M4 are big. They are just big big cars – the same size as the previous generation M6.

More and more people are feeling that BMW has moved away from what made their sports cars so great – small footprint, great handling, great chassis, good power. Now its all about power with turbo-chargers. Since we all love the M235i, and believe its the closest thing to a BMW M3 sold today, we are all pumped about the new BMW M2.

We believe that the BMW M2 is now the true successor to the BMW E30 M3, E36 M3 and the E36 M3. Everything else went to a larger size that we just don’t care about. To learn more about the BMW M2, go to the M2 forums at
