In an interview with BMW Blog, BMW M CEO Dr. Friedrich Nitschke, he confirms that there will be a successor to the famous 1M. When asked about the lessons that the division learned about the 1M and if they plan to make a successor Nitschke says, “We stopped the production of the 1 Series M Coupe in the middle of last year and we launched in Germany the M135i. It’s a new category for us, the M Performance. At the moment we are very successful with this car. It’s not a pure M car, but we, for example, won the prize of the best sports car in its category in Germany and England.
At the moment we are thinking of what can we do with an entry-level car for the M brand. We haven’t made a decision yet, but the 1 M coupe was so successful, that in my opinion, I am absolutely sure we will build a successor.”
This is very interesting news for M enthusiasts, especially those who loved the 1M. This successor will be another interesting addition to the M family.
