“Klaus Fröhlich, BMW's head of vehicle development, previously said the next M3 and M4 would be in production until 2027 or 2028 and called the car a fortress to protect the manual transmission”

Same article that talks about an 8-speed DCT. Don't believe a word.

There are a lot of talkers threating to leave the brand. Personally, I welcome 8AT mDrive as I was blown away when I drove the F90 around the Ring for 2 days during a BMW Driving Experience training event.
HAHA felt the same way when with the P Car Configurator.

In one year. July 2020. Thats when 4 series production starts. M3 will be shortly after as MY 2021. The 4 series front will tell you the front of next m3. Go drive m340 x drive. It will tell you the handling. Drive x3 m. It will give you the engine power.
Put all 3 together - voila
