BMW has been busy testing the next generation two door M3, known as the M4. BMW is switch two door 3 series naming to 4 series and as result the two door M3 is now known as the M4. As you can see from the spy pictures the M4 is still heavily in development and BMW isn't giving away any secrets about the design of the 2 door just yet.

See more pictures of the M4 testing on the Nurburgring at Autocar.co.uk

What do you think about the M4 naming? Do you think the next generation M4 is going to be a hit?

They're copying what Audi did with the A5/S5, which is just a 2 door A4/S4 with a BIG price hike. Or heck, what they did themselves way back when with the 6 series, which is just a 2 door 5 series with a price hike.

Seemed to work OK, people will pay more for less if it's prettier.

Still not believing there will be a 4 series naming convention on the coupe.

Nothing at BMW is confirmed until it happens but Mr. Willisch, BMW NA CEO gave a good indication that it is happening at Bimmerfest 2012. Skip to 12:20 for the specific questions -
