M cars are popular, but the M2 looks like it's going to outsell the rest soon.
We rate the new BMW M2 quite high, it's a great car that packs a serious punch, and in true M-Car fashion it handles brilliantly. It's smaller than the M3 and the M4, as the name suggests, which makes it better because it's closer to the original M cars that started the whole legend that is ///M. Originally touted as limited edition, the BMW M2 is luckily in mass production, or at least it will see production as long as there's a market for it. That said, production will reportedly stop at the end of 2017.
This news gives us hope that a new M2 should be on the market in 2018, although we have no way of knowing if that would be a facelift or if it will be an all-new car with even more power and better tech inder the skin. As it stands, for the princely sum of around $52,000, you can own a BMW M2, one of Bavaria's finest that features a brilliant turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder with a very healthy 370 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque available. Many Americans also seem to consider this as the best M car on the market, or at least the most sought after. This info doesn't come from a survey, but according to BMWBlog, the sheer amount of orders destined for America is seriously high.
According to the post, BMW has supplied nearly 1,200 M2 cars since the model launched in America in Spring of 2016. That's quite an impressive number. At the end of August this year BMW stepped up production on the 2017 models of the M2, they are now churning out cars at the rate of 130 units a week. How many more will we see in the States? There's no way of knowing just yet but we're sure there will be plenty more, especially when they start being given serious aftermarket makeovers.
