Has BMW Killed This Dream For Everyone?

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

Afew days ago, we told you about the unfortunate unlikeliness of a BMW M3Touring 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 tofall in love with the idea of this car, a 431 horsepower 406 lb-ft of torquefamily car with a fun factor that would make you reconsider birth control. Rendering artist Theophilus Chin also went right ahead and produced a coupleof stunning images presenting the visual potential of such a model.

But despite the fact that an M3 would be the perfect rival for domesticrivals like the Audi RS4 Avant and Mercedes C63 AMG, a BMW official has comeout 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 mightappeal 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 renderingimages.
