The next-gen BMW M4 already has people excited, even though the details have barely been released. Fortunately, there have been a few sightings on the test track that have many just as excited as ever about this M4 coupe.
M4 Coupe – The Goods
One of the biggest pieces of news about this vehicle is its large grille. While it’s tough to tell exactly what it might look like from the camouflage BMW notoriously puts on its cars for trips to the test track, what is clear is that it is significantly larger than that of the 3 Series, and it may even be much bigger than the vehicle actually needs. It’s this large piece of news that has many interested in a model that’s bound to look pretty seriously different from anything this brand has previously released.
A few other details were visible while the vehicle was at the test track. The windows seem to be shorter than the older M4 models tend to be, and the entire car seems to be much closer to the ground. It seems to have carbon ceramic brakes, as well as a quad-tipped exhaust and a large muffler. Previous shots of the vehicle have shown the cabin to look quite a bit like the 3 Series. It seems to have the standard 8.8-inch touchscreen, as well as the expected digital gauge cluster, and rotary controls for the iDrive system.
While it’s hard to tell from the test track, most believe this will use a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six, just as the X3 M and the X4 M currently do. BMW has promised that it will include a manual transmission option, and most believe that the company will offer rear-wheel and all-wheel drive options. Initial deliveries of the vehicle won’t occur until 2021.

BMW isn’t afraid to go head-to-head with some of the toughest competition in its class. Whether it’s on the Autobahn in Germany or at the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois, BMW is more than happy to show everyone there what it’s got. Car.com decided to find out for themselves which was the best luxury performance coupe, and the 2015 BMW M4 was up.
The other two vehicles in the lineup included the 2016 Cadillac ATS-V and the 2015 Lexus RC F. Each car was driven on a 162-mile real-world mileage course. This included the Byron Dragway located in Byron, Illinois for testing on each car’s 0-60 mph acceleration ability, quarter-mile time and speed, and a 60-0 brake test, and the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois for a day drive on the course there so judges could feel how the car handled.
Five judges drove them back-to-back on the same stretch of pavement. The judges consisted of three Car.com editors, PBS’s MotorWeek producer, and the Cars.com in-market shopper. BMW car dealers geared up to see how the 2015 BMW M4 fared against the Cadillac and Lexus.
As it turns out, the 2015 BMW M4 came out on top. Powerful, strong, well-built, and worth every penny, it performed above and beyond the contenders with excellent acceleration, comfortable ride, and braking power.
BMW car dealers like Braman made sure to take note – with such high praise it’s hard not to pay closer attention to the M4. Naturally, with BMW, it’s hard to look away as it is. No doubt BMW already knew the answer to who would win the Luxury Performance Coupe challenge, but they’re not one to brag. After all, the results speak for themselves.
See the 2015 BMW M4 for yourself at Braman BMW. A test drive will quickly show you exactly what the judges found so appealing in this car, from interior design to speed; it’s just what you’ve always wanted.
It’s hard to glean new information from car companies when they’re testing out new concepts and planning new cars. The best places hold tightly to every detail, waiting for that one special moment when they can do the grand reveal. As much fun as those reveals are, it’s still rather entertaining to try and peek behind the curtain before the show.
In this case, everyone is eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new 2016 BMW M4 GTS and the new 2016 BMW M2 Coupe. Many people suspected both of these were in the works, and official confirmation is slowly bubbling to the surface. An image taken at BMW Internet Market Workshop has since made the rounds, and it’s very promising.
2016 BMW M2 Coupe
So far, what we do know is that the new 2016 BMW M2 Coupe should enter into production sometime in November. The word is that it will receive a modified body as well as a modified chassis. Beneath the hood, we’ll likely see a 3.0 liter turbocharged engine that is thought to offer up about 380 horsepower.
2016 BMW M4 GTS
Then what will the new 2016 BMW M4 GTS have in store? It’s hard to say given BMW’s lockdown on the vehicle. Given the designs and facelifts that other BMWs have had in the past, there’s a good chance that it too will be lighter. It may also feature some of BMW’s cool new water injection technology in order to boost the performance of a straight-six turbo engine. Still most things are going to be purely speculation until BMW reveals the M4 in all its glory.
Until these two are available, you can always satisfy your longing for a BMW at Braman BMW in Jupiter. Ask any representative there about future possibilities of getting an M2 or M4 – but you can trust that once either of those is available, Braman will be all over it.
BMW likes to make their cars zip around the racetrack as much as anyone, but they’re also very aware that the racetrack can be a dangerous place, and there needs to be the right amount of order in case of an issue. Safety cars are sent out to the front of the competing cars in case something happens that causes an issue. The safety car will set the speed and remain in front until the issue is past.
This means that the safety car involved needs to be able to run with the best of them. The racing series picks their safety cars, and they choose very carefully. In the MotoGP series, they like the BMW M4, for sale in West Palm Beach. BMW has been a part of the MotoGP series for a very long time – since 1999 in fact. So MotoGP knows what it’s going to get when they team up with BMW. And BMW knows how to deliver.
A quick look at the M4 will put one in mind of a futuristic police car. And, in some ways, that’s what it needs to be. The colors make it stand out drastically from the actual competitors, and the overall color scheme immediately lets people know that something is up and they need to pay close attention to this car. But this new safety car has an innovative water injection system that actually injects water into the combustion system as a fine mist. This may sound counterproductive to what we know, but BMW doesn’t play about safety or performance. According to BMW, it aids in the combustion process by helping to lower the temperature – which is often hotter than ideal – thus allowing for better combustion.
Of course, this isn’t going to be restricted to the BMW M4 safety car – eventually this technology will be seen all over, which means the next time you visit your BMW dealership in Jupiter, you may just discover a BMW M series car or two with this system under the hood.
