Sure, it’s been plenty of talk about it, a lot of work will go into it but the amount of rumors regarding the next generation of the F30 M3 simply outweighs both.
Most of them have been dismissed by this point and while some still rage on, the main points have been pretty much cleared.
A few details have been appearing lately however there’s something considerably important to talk as they are biggies.
The 3.0 liter-ish straight six engine was something we already knew and loved considerably more than the rumored V6.
Turbocharged system haven’t been cleared up yet but the displacement is finally available. It will be a 3.2 liter, something that can’t be described as anything other than great.
Some of BMW’s greatest cars ever were powered by a 3.2 liter straight six so the F30 M3 has a lot to live up to.
This happens with every single new M3 model but this generation will have a special “problem” as the Bavarians have announced something worrying.
It seems that the F30 BMW M3 will use an electric power steering system. This usually robs you away of feel and unless BMW manage to revise it brilliantly, the steering may be… less than perfect.
We need to consider the situation like this, would you like less power and have a great steering setup or a rather less responsive one with added boost?
It’s a hard decision and BMW have already made it for us. Perhaps they know what they’re doing better than we can speculate.
