Simple as that. Do you have an idea how long it took for the BMW board to authorize the 1M which was relatively cheap and easy due to its "parts bin" character? So, let's celebrate when we see the details (weight, power, design and so).
Yes, I understand the hurdles Dr Kay Segler had to overcome to bring us the 1M "Pony Car". It was that^ same level of enthusiasm
, that cost him his job.
As... father Marketing declared the //1M too valuable.
(Too valuable even if it cost $60k, it was still too valuable for BMW to offer it any longer, as it messed up their pretty portfolio)
Tell me, why do people doubt the focus of this new M2..? Could it be the previous lip-service us enthusiasts get... instead of buyable products?
