So why is the M2 a bad investment? Simple: there will be too many of these on the road. Not complicated at all, right? BMW has been tight-lipped on the M2’s production numbers. At the 2016 Detroit Auto Show we were told that while the car “wasn’t a mass market product” production would be “a little more relaxed.” Rumor has it that BMW will also make the M2 until 2020.
That’s a damn long production run! While the newest M is a spiritual successor to the 1 Series M Coupe and E30 M3, its production should easily exceed the caps on both those cars. Only 6,342 1 Series M Coupes were made. The E30 M3 saw a much larger production run, with 16,584 cars making it off the line worldwide.
The BMW Next 100 Concept will also be prominently on display, showing festival goers what the future holds for the brand.
As the featured marque always does, BMW will be in charge of the large sculpture on Goodwood house’s front lawn. This year, it will feature a 328 Mille Miglia Roadster, a Brabham-BMW BT52 Formula 1 car, and a Le Mans-winning V12 LMR.
BMW will also make sure to have its Rolls-Royce and MINI models also prominently on display, celebrating their British heritage. The M brand will also have its display known as “M Avenue” which will celebrate BMW’s performance brand’s 40-year history.
