Is History Working Against The Idea Of A Convertible BMW M2?


Apparently BMW is considering chopping the top.

The all new BMW M2 hasn't even made its official public debut yet and already people are speculating about new variants, specifically a convertible. CarScoops is reporting that an M2 convertible is being considered by the automaker. This news comes from an anonymous insider, so take it with a Roman soldier's ration of salt. Apparently the source would not confirm or deny the project but CarScoops was led to believe that it's still being considered. However, history is working against this idea (somewhat).

The BMW M2 is a spiritual successor to the 1M and the spiritual successor to the E30 M3, neither of which featured a convertible option. However, the 2 Series does offer a convertible, so there's that. Both the M4 and M6 offer convertible options but does that mean the M2 has to have one? The 1M was ridiculously successful as a hardtop coupe and the E30 M3, well if you don't know its cult following then do some googling. Either way, the M2 should be a blast to drive with its turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six pushing out 370 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque. Said blast might be a bit more intense with the top down and 0 to 60 mph happening in about 4.3 seconds.
