BMW Decides Fate Of M Division

Written by tonks on July 29, 2008

BMW M1 ConceptLudwig Willisch – the CEO of BMW M GmbH – gave us some information of what will happen to BMW’s M division during an interview with Auto-Motor-und-Sport. The information he provided had some positives and a few negatives that not everyone will enjoy.

When it comes to the positives – Willish mentioned that future M-models will include high-revving turbocharged engines, and offer ceramic brakes. The bad news is that there will be no E91 M3 Touring, E92 M3 CSL, or M1 Concept.

Apparently, BMW doesn’t feel there is enough of a market to support those vehicles. The perplexing news is that BMW is currently working on M-versions of the X5 and X6.
