That ‘s the rumor from BMW insider Scott26. BMW M is strongly considering the release of a convertible version of the 1M. Like the E30 M3, the idea is to close the book on the smallest M car in years by lopping the roof off. And with almost all the engineering already done, it ‘s a rather simple and cost effective way to bring a new variant to market.

So what are the real odds? The biggest issue is the BMW board ‘s reluctance to sell the N54 in anymore past 2011 due to emissions. Because of that one fact, we give it50/50.
