We ‘ve reported on several occasions that M has hinted at developing it ‘s own car that is not based on a standard ‘series ‘ BMW platform. Now we have some veiled references from M themselves (courtesy of Insideline).

>The engineer claimed that M was also ready to adapt to the development of alternative powertrains. “Our job is to sell emotion and fun, using the technology that ‘s socially acceptable at the time. Whether that ‘s a combustion engine or an electric motor, we don ‘t care. ”

Pretty vague if you ask us. But still it ‘s intriguing. Should M go the route of producing a bespoke sports car? Would you be interested?
