Mein Auto: BMW M3, Z4 M Coupe

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.

BMW would be foolish if they decided not to make the F30 M3. All BMW's prime competitors, Lexus, MB and Audi, will bring 4-door-M3-equivalents (IS-F, C-AMG, RS-4), and BMW doesn't want to be left out.
