BMW is under heavy scrutiny for its incoming and hugely anticipated M3 sedan and M4 coupe as the compact luxury sports cars enter their fifth generation ever. That said, many of us enthusiasts are wondering what exactly is in store.

Just as a few examples, the E46 generation saw the M3 CSL while the last generation E90 and E92 M3 saw the M3 GTS.

The supposed result, a lightweight (E36 fans would be grateful if the LTW term returned), track version of the all-new M4 coupe. More power is expected as well, but details were obviously kept to a minimum.
The interior will also receiving some component removals to aid in the mission to decrease the weight even more, improving the M4’s performance.
