While the BMW M3 has grown into a V8-powered muscle car, the original was a different story altogether: a compact, nimble coupe that could school supercars. It's to those roots that BMW is returning with the upcoming 1 Series M Coupe.
Envisioned as a successor to the original M3, the 1 Series M Coupe will pack a 340-horsepower twin-turbo six driving the rear wheels through an old-school six-speed manual transmission. BMW's been teasing the car bit by bit, but will pull the wraps off sometime in December ahead of its full debut at the Detroit Auto Show.
