The future of M: BMW X5, X6 and less

The CEO of BMW M GmbH, Ludwig Willisch, spilled his guts to Auto-Motor-und-Sport in a recent interview about the future of BMW's high-performance M division. The news was good, bad, and downright dumbfounding. For the good, Willish mentioned that future M-models will include high-revving turbocharged engines, and offer ceramic brakes. The bad news is that there will be no E91 M3 Touring, E92 M3 CSL, or M1 Concept. Apparently, BMW doesn't feel there is enough of a market to support those vehicles. The perplexing news is that BMW is currently working on M-versions of the X5 and X6 (apparently to answer a question that enthusiasts have yet to ask). While we cannot control the electrochemical signals being sent between neurons within BMW's think tank, we can continue to hope that BMW doesn't dilute the M-brand the way Mercedes-Benz has with AMG.

A grandes rasgos:
- Futuros modelos M sobrealimentados (hay que joderse con las modas).
- No habrá M3 Touring (gracias a Dios), ni M3 CSL (aún no me lo acabo de creer) o M1 (esto no sé ya si es bueno o malo, porque el diseño me pareció espantoso).
- Al parecer se fabricarán versiones M del X6 y X6 (en fin...).
