BMW subtly reminds us that the reveal of the M2 is imminent

BMW’s Facebook page for their homeland in Germany decided to subtly remind us that the reveal of the M2, one of BMW’s most highly-anticipated models, is about to happen in the very near future.

Due for an online web reveal sometime soon, the M2 is expected to be a successor to the beloved, limited production 1-Series M Coupe. Though, this time around, the M2 will be sold as a normal model, with no cap on its availability.

As a refresher, we’re expecting a detuned version of the same 3.0L TwinPower Turbo inline-six as the M3, with around 365hp and 343 lb-ft of twist, with an overboost function bumping that up to 369 lb-ft of twist for a temporary period under full throttle. The intended result is a 0-62 time in a “screw you E90 M3” time of less than 4.5 seconds, with BMW M’s seven-speed M-DCT dual-clutch cog swapper.
