Is The BMW M2 Going To Be Around For Much Longer Than We Thought?

Rumor

Oh man, we so hope so.

The BMW 1 Series M Coupe was always intended to be a limited production model. The plan was to build 2,700 examples and call it a day, but massive demand, especially from the US, stated otherwise. All told, just over 6,300 M coupes were built in just two model years. So what about its successor, the recently unveiled M2? How long will its lifespan last? BMW hasn’t said much yet, but a reliable German source, according to BMW Blog, is claiming M2 production will continue until 2020.

We’ve reached out to a few BMW sources looking for confirmation regarding this, but BMW Blog elaborates that this isn’t at all impossible. Reason being is that M2 production is taking place at the same Leipzig facility as both the 2 Series Coupe and Convertible, 2 Series Active Tourer and 1 Series five-door. Point being, it’s simple enough to accommodate M2 production despite it having plenty of unique parts. If this turns out to be true, then the mad dash to grab an M2 won’t really happen at all.
