Exclamation 2014 BMW F30 M3 / F32 M4 (bimmer)

First sighting ever.

Rumored to have tri-turbo inline 6 motor with 450hp

Tri-turbo? 1 turbo per two cylinders? This should have a hybrid powertrain to give M3 performance without having to push HP higher.

I think the next 3 will be the most sexy implementation of the current classy yet kinda dull design language of BMW sedans. The M3 in particular should look as hot as ever

The Germans are showing no forward engineering leadership. The new M3 will be good when it could have been game changing. Epic fail!

LOOOL. And who is showing the engineering leadership? Chinese? Korean perhaps?. Evertything not european is a complete lack of taste and when it comes to asiatic cars, cheap and lame.

Wow someone clearly is living in denial with a dose of cultural bigotry.

Engineering leadership has NOTHING to do with taste. The fact that European brands tend to have a higher warranty and service incidence rate than Asian cars, speaks volumes about engineering.

Let's look at German engineering brilliance such as it is. The magic TDI costs more than a conventional gas engine and brings with it a lot of complication, whereas those cheap, lame Asian companies you've just shown your hatred for get the same MPG as the supposedly amazing TDI from a naturally aspirated gas engine.

Let's look at the Cayenne hybrid which still delivers abysmal economy, but boy is it tasteful!

Let's look at hybrids in general and note the Prius by lame Toyota has been around about 15 years and the Germans have yet to produce ONE mainstream hybrid despite the fact that anyone with a brain knows hybrids will be the preponderance of vehicles produced by 2025.

It was a lame Mitsubishi patent that Porsche used on the 944 when they were incapable of producing a smooth engine on their own. Toyota may be as boring as Wonder bread, but they are an engineering juggernaut. And yes, the Chinese are in the hunt especially with battery technology.

You should probably stick to posting your supposedly insider information in the 20??SuperUltraMegaWowUberSaloon!!!!!!!! thread

Of course, thatīs why a BMW 320d achieves the same MPG than a super hybrid Toyata Prius. I have long experience with KIAs, not owning one of course, something that ugly doesnīt deserve not even 100€, they surely are reliable, but the materials the use, thhe lack of top noch tech plasys an important role on that. Iīve yet to hear a mechanic or an engineer that the Korea or any asian car has better tech or better anything than an european one.

And regarding the über Luxury Saloons, I havenīt read any nonsense over there, because everything is based on rumors (which of course is something you are not interested in, as everytime you post there you demostrate your deep knowledge). The problem is when taling about facts one doesnīt know what a fact is.

But go and buy an asian car, I guess thatīs what you were thinking, isnīt it?. Surely a hard decision, they are all as advanced as beautiful.

Man... look at that stance, those proportions. This is going to be a seriously good looking car and I really hope they do make a sedan version. Always have preferred it over the coupe version.

Mind the front end is the one of the F32 4 Series M3, as thereīs not going to be an M3 Sedan.
