Apparently, the Bavarian concern will still leave options with mechanical transmissions, versions with all-wheel drive and rear-wheel drive will also be offered. And although there are already a lot of rumors on the Web about these models, sales will begin no earlier than 2021.

Despite the fact that the Web is already full of spy photos of the prototypes of the BMW M3 and M4, sales will not begin soon. Markus Flush, head of the BMW M’s “charged” division, says it can only enter the market in early 2021. Production starts at the end of next year, but the presentation may take place at the beginning of March 2020 as part of the Geneva Motor Show.

 “We are not officially declaring anything, but I can tell you that we will most likely offer several options for models with automatic and manual transmission, as well as front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive,” Markus added in a conversation about possible versions of the new BMW M3 and M4 generations.

 According to the latest information, it is also known that the BMW M3 will be offered with several power levels. What options will be offered is still unknown. BMW M3 Pure, presumably, will receive a less powerful engine and only rear-wheel drive. BMW M3 Competition will probably be offered with the most powerful engine (more than 510 horsepower), but only with automatic and all-wheel drive.

The cost is still unknown. But judging by the spy photos, the production version will retain a huge radiator grille, and can get an open-top version.
