Report: BMW is in the works with an M2, might be due sometime in 2016

LeftLaneNews reports that BMW will actually be getting around to producing a fully-upgraded 2-Series, sent through the M Performance finishing school, to produce an actual M2.

Rumored to launch sometime in 2016, the M2 will utilize a more powerful version of the M235i’s 3.0L TwinPower Turbo inline-six. That said, this supposed M2 will carry on the legacy of the original 1-Series M-Coupe that BMW enthusiasts fell in love with. Though unlike the 1-Series M Coupe, the M2 won’t be a limited production model.

Power figures are estimated to hover around 375-400hp for the M2, versus the M235i’s 320hp, allowing the latter to hit 60 in just 4.8 seconds. The M2 will expectedly be quicker.

As for the rest, you can expect the usual treatment of M Performance visual and body upgrades for better aerodynamics and less weight, larger wheels, and lots and lots of M badges.
