Man, that would be cool. Kinda like the BRZ/FRS enthusiasts have been asking for since that car came out (minus much of the lightness, but hey its 2021, everything is fat.)
Pretty sure nobody is asking for a 3600 lb coupe!
But 992 porsche TTS is almost 3,600 lbs...
And it's a perfect car

I hope it doesn't have the same stupid rear bumper design of the 2er Gran Coupe as well as the new G80/2

Reading a lot of these responses, it constantly amazes me how consistently negative a lot of posters are - particularly given this is supposed to be a BMW enthusiast forum.

I mean, sure, if they released a G42 that was a complete horror show of a thing fair enough. To my eyes though this looks pretty tidy, obviously there's a few minor details that may not please everyone.

At the end of the day, BMW should get at least some credit for even bothering with a 2 series coupe in todays climate. Small(ish) 2-door rear drive coupes are a vanishingly rare breed nowadays and given the push to electric (and the investments required), combined with relatively small sales figures, they could have easily just killed off this model entirely.

So I'm not saying forgive them for any old nonsense they push out the door, but there are fair worse things than some slightly bulky mirrors or a triangular shaped vent.

Modern safety standards and market expectations mean this will never be a Lotus Elise or Caterham 7 flyweight, so if thats what you want you'll never be happy anyway.

On the positive side, I suppose though if a few minor design points are all you've got to complain about that's probably a good thing right?!

Given the how big and ugly has the new 4 has become, this will be the one I'd consider once it's out in the showrooms. Overall I'm liking it so far.

By the way I posted this elsewhere, but in case you haven't seen it, the G42/87 based 'iM2' has been reported in Car magazine and on their website: https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/spy-shots/bmw/im2/

Not really the biggest fan of those disappearing body-lines that the industry seems to be using. Also, does the front overhang look a bit long to anyone else?

Nice color.The side profile looks great and those rear fender flares are huge for a regular series BMW.They look very similar to the design on the current M2.We must be getting close to the full reveal of the G42.

Yeah the rear fender bulge looks nearly identical to the F87 and to me that's a good thing as it was kind of unique to the car. Would be cool if they introduced the car in this purple color as you don't normally see a color like this as a launch color of any car.

I like this car so far, but if BMW really wanted to make this car small and light, they could even with the current regulations.

The current Miata is slightly shorter, and lighter, than the original one which came out 30 years ago. It's possible.

As per lemetier, it is only a 220 MSport.
