M Gets Small: BMW Cutting Cylinders for M3 and 1 Series


I'll get excited for a 2900lb turbo 4 banger 1er with 300hp

That car also is in the inception stages, with BMW M working on its business case. The 1 Series M will weigh less than 2900 pounds and its turbo four must make at least 300 horsepower, Willisch says. I would love to have a car like that in our range. It would also be a good thing to get the interest of younger customers again. This would only be a story for the next 1 Series, so youd be looking at 2014 or so.

In 2014, i will buy a 135i for $10,000, junk the interior and put in a tune/mod it conservatively. Should teach the 300HP 1M and the 6 cylinder M3 a good lesson and make for track fun.
