Rumor: BMW files for ‘M2’ trademark, 1-series to be rebadged 2-Series

BMW 1-Series M Coupe

We absolutely love rumors here at egmCarTech – they make day-to-day automotive news just a little more interesting. Did you know that BMW is considering an M version of the 9-Series? Well, because they’re not and the 9-series doesn’t exist and we’re just kidding.

However, recent rumors suggest that BMW has filed for trademark rights to ‘M2’ and ‘BMW M2.’ Apparently the German automaker is considering launching a 2-Series lineup that will consist of a 2-Series Coupe, the 2-Series Convertible and the M version BMW M2.

So what is the 2-Series all about? Rumors say they are essentially the next generation 1-series coupe and convertible, but renamed as the 2-series.

We’re not sure why BMW would change the 1-Series nameplate to 2-Series – but that’s what rumors suggest.
