Yes, it will fill the void left by the recently departed 640i.

US product strategy:

1/2 family of products - B48 only (coupe excepted)
3/4 family of products - B48/B58/S58
5/6 family of products - B48/B58/N63/S63 (no B48 in SAVs)
7/8 family of products - B58/N63/S63 (N74 dies with the G12)

And before someone asks if there will be an M7 next generation - I have no idea. But they really should, right?

The BMW X3M and X4M have their World Premiere in Shanghai this week.

An M7 would be cool, although the grill would ruin it, but what engine would they use? The V12 is already in the M760i, and a V8 isn't as cool as a V12, plus they got the Alpina B8 which is the closest they'll ever get to an M7. Maybe they should try and make a V16 again, so the M gets the range topping engine




They should also include the double rear intakes for the radiator as well, I'd love to see how people would react to that!

Shame that BMW is leaving the wagon market in the US for Audi RS6 and Mercedes E63 to conquer.

I figure they'd have the same lineup as the 8 Series - an M7 with the S63 and the 750i would be renamed to M750i to replace the departed M760i.

Since June 29th 2017 until April 10th 2019: 78 X4M cars have been at least build. this is what I was able to find out by writing down the VIN code of the car showed to me last week. Unfortunnately, I reached the end of the sequence and I have no idea which VIN are applied on new ones currently been produced from April 11th. Driver's guide for X4M is online.
