Has BMW Killed This Dream For Everyone?

Rumor / 23 Comments

If we can't have it, no one can.

A few days ago, we told you about the unfortunate unlikeliness of a BMW M3 Touring making it to the US market, following what should have been its debut at the September Frankfurt Motor Show. We weren't the only ones to fall in love with the idea of this car, a 431 horsepower 406 lb-ft of torque family car with a fun factor that would make you reconsider birth control. Rendering artist Theophilus Chin also went right ahead and produced a couple of stunning images presenting the visual potential of such a model.

But despite the fact that an M3 would be the perfect rival for domestic rivals like the Audi RS4 Avant and Mercedes C63 AMG, a BMW official has come out to deny the existence of this car in the automaker's pipeline. Speaking to Autovisie, M development chief Carsten Pries said that a wagon as hot has this might appeal to some buyers in Central Europe, but it wouldn't work in any other market – ours included. This is bittersweet news for American wagon aficionados like us. Yeah, we won't be getting our M3 wagon, but hey, neither will anybody else. Meanwhile, all residents of the world can equally enjoy these awesome rendering images.
