What is weird is that they still released the M6 Gran Coupe with only RWD regardless of the 4MATIC AMG rumors.

Maybe BMW just want to get knocked onto their heads by the competition and come back even stronger afterwards... For now we know that the M5 and M6 Gran Coupe won't get LCIs for at least 2 or 4 years respectively, which means no AWD.
