Slightly dumbfounded by the announcement. Let me try to repeat what I heard:
1M -> M2, still RWD, but lesser weight and turbo 4.
Now what is this M-one and Z2??!?!? I am sure BMW is well aware that Porsche is pipelining a smaller Cayman/Boxster as well therefore in response to that BMW will release a Z1? Z1M in addition to Z2 FWD, which is going to be what? A cooper s on steroid?
BMW i and BMW M sharing technology would allow to build small cars to take on Porsche Boxster and Cayman
Based on F20/F30 platform, yet an exclusive M model
Although in no way moving forward but currently in the realm of ideas.
with the Z2 now joining the FWD family , The original proposed Z2 which went to the final stages before the car was switched to the FWD programme.
Is effectively reborn in this project.
