Exclamation 2023 G87 M2 Spy Pics/Videos: Competition (or Special Edition) Model Spotted

Latest compiled info for the G87 M2 model [from the Future BMW Models Info Thread]:

G87 M2
  • Production 12/22-07/29
  • Production only at SLP Mexico
  • Same S58 as G80/G82 under the hood, tuned to 455hp. RWD.
  • Will be available with a manual and an automatic. Most options will be the same as G80/G82, and I don't see much of that decontenting that was done with the original F87 compared with F80/F82. Though ceramic brakes and bucket seats seem to be missing, all the drivetrain and suspension things are the same as G82, and even carbon roof will be an option. The wheels will be 19" front and 20" rear, G87 specific design. The first four months of its production will fall into the "M 50th anniversary" period so expect the initial run to become somewhat collectible. And the new dashboard will be standard from day one.
  • G87 M2 Competition will indeed be called "M2 Competition".

Well...I don't dislike the horizontal slats...but really hoping that front bumper design is NOT the final product.

Once again the leaks on here are proven to be correct.

This is going the same way as the G8x release. First the leaks, the denials that it can't be true, and then everything all starts to become reality.

it's funny how many people will deny things until they launch then just complain. I think it looks tasteful

Sales so strong that the local BMW dealer has dozens of M cars sitting on their lot, while you can't find a 911, Boxster, or Cayman at a Porsche dealership anywhere.

What I'm not loving this particular leak, it could end up looking a bit like a retro squared off E30/E36. Still need to wait and see.

Guess BMW is watching Bimmerpost as well. The more leaks we can find, the less camouflage they will put on their prototype cars😜

They say the direction BMW is heading. They are looking to buck the trend of traditional and going for something entirely different. Only way to know if it truly works is to see how sales are over the next couple of years.

I don't like everything they've done as of late and I especially didn't like the G8x design at first but as more photos and videos rolled out I ended up loving it and ordering one.
