The fact that BMW has never sold an M3 wagon is baffling. But it’s true: The only M3 long roofs in public hands are the ones Frankensteined into existence by dedicated roundel fanatics.
That could be changing soon, according to a report by Autocar. Spy photos (and common sense) confirm that a 3-series Touring wagon is in the works, and it’s a given that we can expect to see an M3 sedan down the road, as well. But Autocar’s BMW insider source suggests the company has hit upon the downright revolutionary idea of combining the wagon body with the M3 go-fast bits -- and that it is seriously considering taking it to production.
Why the company decided to build, say, the 3-series GT instead of doing this years ago is unclear. In any case, it’s likely that any resulting M3 wagon will remain beyond U.S. shores even if it does come to fruition.
