The BMW CS and BMW GTS appear to be real and set for production. According to sources on the German forum 2erTalk the BMW M2 CS will be first up with production beginning in March of 2018. The CS will be powered by a 410 hp version of the M4’s S55 twin turbo inline six and will not be a limited edition model. Orders are said to begin in January of 2018.

Sound compelling? One year later things get way more interesting. According to the same sources, the BMW M2 GTS will go into production in March of 2019 with a 450 hp version of the M4’s S55 engine. Word has it that BMW will limit production to approximately 1000 unites worldwide.

If you’re interested in either we’d recommend getting in touch with your dealer now.

Note that we’re including photos of the Moto GP Safety car as we believe it gives us a good idea of what the new GTS will look like (sans stickers and gold wheels).
