BMW has plans to launch a series of new sports cars in the coming years, including the M4 CS, a more powerful and lighter version of the M4 coupe. The M4 CS is set to be unveiled in 2024, following the facelift of the M3 and M4 scheduled for 2023. Additionally, BMW has announced that the new generation of the M5 and M5 Touring will arrive in 2024, featuring a new plug-in hybrid powertrain, which is a first for the brand.
The M4 CS will be based on the M3 CS, a super-sport sedan launched in January 2023. The M4 CS will share the same engine and drivetrain but will have some chassis, body, and tire modifications to enhance performance and handling.
Before the M4 CS, BMW will refresh the M3 and M4 with a mid-cycle facelift. These two sports cars will receive some cosmetic updates, such as new front and rear lights. It is not yet clear if there will be changes to the mechanics or power, but it is presumed that the Competition versions will retain their 510 horsepower. The facelift for the M3 and M4 is expected to arrive in 2023.
Finally, BMW has confirmed that the new generation of the M5 and M5 Touring will be introduced in 2024. These two cars will be the first in the BMW lineup to feature a plug-in hybrid powertrain, combining a 4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with one or more electric motors. The total power output is expected to be around 790 horsepower, with a maximum torque of 1,000 Nm.
