I believe that was just a rumor. Of course you could argue that BMW M is simply using a F30 sedan to test rough power plant and suspension options to get a jump start on the coupe development. That being said I think if they let a test mule be caught in such obvious M clothing it means we will see a production M3 sedan.

Maybe the concerns about taking away M5 sales didn't happen? Or with the new M3 coming with a turbo six it allows them to position the M3 as the lighter sporter car to the grand touring luxury V8 M5?

Who knows....all I can say is that I think a M3 sedan is coming.
