Report: The BMW M2 to surface on the web in October, could be physically debuted in LA or Detroit

You’ve probably heard about it by now, but it’s the next big thing to come from BMW–the highly-anticipated follow-up to the original 1-Series M Coupe, the all-new M2.

Here’s what we know: it’ll be built on the current 2-Series platform, the next-gen version of the former 1-Series sports coupe and convertible. It will have a stonking 3.0L TwinPower Turbocharged inline-six, with around 365hp and 343 lb-ft of twist. The typical measuring point of a 0-62 time should take no longer than 4.5 seconds, with a top spring limited by the usual gentlemen’s agreement of 155 mph.

In addition to the extra oomph, there’s every reason to suspect high-performance suspension tuning, a limited-slip differential, and a much more aggressive bodykit, modeled after the current M4.

When should we expect it? BMW enthusiast site, BMWBlog, says sometime in October for a web debut, while the actual physical reveal of the car could happen at either LA in November, or Detroit in 2016.

And should you care? Yes, because it’s likely be the purest, most driver-focused Bimmer to come from Munich in recent years, more so than the M3 and M4 because of its smaller size, lighter weight, and thus, less cumbersome arse to haul about.

I can hardly wait…
