We previously shared the first confirmation about the next gen (G87) M2, with production set to begin 12/2022 in Mexico. Autocar has now published some more G87 M2 details in its newest report.

According to Autocar, the G87 M2 will feature:
  • S58 engine from the X3M / X4M and G80 M3 / G82 M4
  • At least 420 hp / 406 lb-ft
  • 0-62mph in low 4 seconds
  • RWD exclusively
  • Manual and 8 speed automatic transmissions
  • Built on CLAR platform (along with upcoming second generation (G42) 2 Series)
  • Possible mild-hybrid electric boosting incorporated some time during 7 year life cycle
  • Assembly in both the San Luis Potosí Mexico plant (for NA) and Leipzig Germany plant.

Great to hear on the manual!

Does this mean if you want European Delivery on the M2 you better do it this year or next?

"slightly larger dimensions" = ugh
future "mild hybrid electric boosting" = interesting

Get one before the huge grills get fitted

Going from the excellent DCT to 8 speed torque converter auto in what is the purest M car of its range.

Abomination.

To be honest, the whole industry is sort abandoning what you would traditionally expect in a certain type of vehicle. I'm at the point where I don't really look into these sort of details anymore and just see if the application works as intended. The 8AT in the M5 is a perfect example of this.

Part of me still hopes it won't be another pig like the current M2.

A different part of me knows it will be.

Agree, M2's size is perfect where its at right now. The Mild-Hybrid sounds interesting but, it will require BMW to work around the weight of the car, and the current M2 is already pretty heavy.

Been dying to pick up another M car, especially with a manual. The current one was just a BIT too slow for me, this one should be perfect though!

Sounds good, however I'd prefer it to retain the current size and work on lowering the weight of the vehicle. Hopefully they will make improvements in areas like steering feel in particular (although I am doubtful) and hopefully it won't look ugly (although again, still doubtful).

Wife and I are currently enjoying the F87 M2C so we likely won't upgrade to the new one unless there are some major upgrades for this generation.
