Is This Proof BMW Is Making An M2 Convertible Despite Its Denials?

BMW may have denied its existence but images have just surfaced online showing an M2 Convertible.

Uncovered by Autoblog.nl, it is claimed that these images are the real, computer-generated deal and have been somehow lifted from a source within the German marque.

While they appear to show an M2 Convertible that’s ready to roll off the production line, there’s a possibility they were created during internal discussions about the car before a decision was made to not build the car.

Earlier in the year, BMW’s chief engineer Frank Isenberg claimed that there would be no M2 Convertible. He said that the firm decided to cater to purists with the M2 and wouldn’t compromise on that by creating a drop-top which would inherently be softer and less capable on a racetrack. The M235i Cabriolet, he said, is the best middle ground.

Potentially, BMW’s position on this has changed. If an M2 Convertible were to launch, it wouldn’t be unprecedented for the firm, following in the footsteps of the M3 Convertibles of yesteryear and the current roofless M4, itself a slightly tamed version of the M4 Coupe.

Will it happen? Who knows. But if it does, expect to hear news in the coming months.
