2011 was the most successful year for the M division in 40 years of history, mainly due to the releases of the baby BMW 1M coupe and the M5 F10 saloon.
In the following youtube video, Dr. Friedrich Nitschke, president of BMW M GMBH, talks about the M division company direction and future models to be soon launched into various markets.
The next car to be launched will be the F06 M6 convertible and afterwards the coupe and gran coupe models.
But the most important part that Dr. Friedrich Nitschke is featuring, it’ regarding a new category of cars in BMW range: The BMW M Performance. I posted some time ago, about the M550xd and x6 550d that will be the first pioneers of this new performance category.
The first M performance models will be presented at the 2012 Geneva Motor show starting on 8th March.
