It’s a rumor that’s been around for years and now it looks like it may become reality for at least one BMW model line. According to a report in Autobild BMW will rename the 1 Series Coupe and Convertible the ’2 Series’. The idea is that it would help the F22 and F23 avoid confusion with the new family of FWD models also marketed under the 1 Series brand. It would also help in moving the cars slightly upmarket to correspond with a much higher level of premium options that will be available (similar to what BMW has done with the X6 over the X5).
What does this mean for the 1M? Get ready for the 2M or maybe even a M2.
