This Shootout Between the BMW M4 and Porsche Cayman GT4 is Epic
Here’s How The Traction Control In the 2021 BMW M3 and M4 Works
From the M Drift Analyzer to the two brake settings and the second M mode further split into Road, Sport, and Track, the new BMW M3 and M4 are brimming with geeky tech meant to boost one thing and one thing only: the driver’s pleasure. At the same time, the traction control system developed by BMW M is a brand new concept that comes to improve on the old one used in the previous M3 and M4.
This is Probably What the New BMW 8 Series Should Have Looked Like
By this moment in time, we’ve seen the retro-futuristic design in many incarnations. We’ve seen the American trio – Mustang, Camaro, Challenger, the Alpine A110, and now the soon-to-arrive Nissan 400Z. They all harken back to their originals from the 1960s and 1970s. That said, a design from the 1980s is a bit trickier to reinterpret. TheSketchMonkey has decided to take the challenge and gives us his take on what the current BMW 8 Series would look like. His YouTube channel has been around for a while and this is just one of the graphic designer’s many projects.

Great Alternatives to the Volkswagen Golf GTI
The Volkswagen Golf GTI is considered the forefather of the hot hatch segment. The first Golf GTI was introduced in June 1976 and has been going strong ever since. Nowadays, the Golf GTI is in its eighth generation and is still one of the best all-around performers in the segment. It’s also sold both in Europe and North America, which is not something that can be said for all the cars on the list. With that being said, the modern hot hatch scene is as dynamic as ever and many new contenders for the best hot hatch title. Here are some of the best alternatives that aim to de-throne the GTI.
2022 BMW M2 - Everything You Need to Know
We know from the recent spy shots that BMW is hard at work applying the finishing touches to the upcoming M2. Test mules have been spotted around Munich but also dashing through the snow in Sweden, which means a debut should happen by the end of 2021. Here’s what the new BMW M2 might have in store for us.

This Video Review of the 2003 BMW E46 M3 Will Take You Back to Simpler and Better Times
The go-fast version of the E46-generation 3 Series is seen as some sort of a last hurrah since it stands as the final M3 to be powered by a naturally aspirated inline-six engine. With turbocharging being the norm nowadays, an N/A M3 may never return and, as such, we look back fondly to the E46 M3, the first properly fast M3.
Or do we? Many criticized BMW for fitting this M3 with the SMG-II semi-automatic transmission that was lackluster at low revs and oftentimes sluggish when compared to the manual six-speed transmission. Then there was also the crowd that bought M3s that blended in well with the rest of Bimmer owners that give the Munich-based company a bad rep because of the way they behave in traffic. RCR dives in to give its opinion on whether the E46 M3 was a hero or a villain.

It Almost Seems Like BMW’s Design Boss Is Trying to Justify His Job Amid Big Grille Criticism
It is no secret that BMW’s decision to enlarge the front grille of its 4 Series (and M3 and M4, for good measure) has been receiving a lot of criticism from fans and potential customers. In fact, the decision has prompted tuners to come up with conversions that take the grille to a more bearable design, yet BMW continues to defend this polarizing styling cue.
Artist Creates the Mythical BMW M4 Shooting Brake and the M4 Gran Turismo With Perfection
BMW has no plans to build shooting brake and Gran Turismo versions of the M4, but that hasn’t stopped digital artist Sugar Design from imagining what they could look like if the German automaker put them to production. Designed with the familiar styling of a coupé with extended hatchback proportions, the M4 Shooting Brake looks like a car that BMW should build. The M4 Gran Turismo, however, looks like what you’d expect to see from the M3 Gran Turismo if that model ends up becoming a real thing.
Can A Tuned, 490-HP BMW M240i Take On the Porsche 911CS and BMW M3?
Sometimes, the best drag races are those that have some form of handicap. Take this race hosted by YouTube channel Track Day, for example. It’s a three-car throw down involving an F80-generation BMW M3 Competition, a 992-generation Porsche 911 Carrera S, and a BMW M240i. The latter is the obvious underdog in this race, but this isn’t your stock M240i that comes into the race with significant modifications, none more important than an engine upgrade that helps the turbocharged inline-six-cylinder engine produce more output than both the M3 Competition and the 911 Carrera S. The scales tip differently now, do they? Does the modified M240i have what it takes to beat the M3 Competition and the 911 Carrera S? Let’s find out.

We Bet You Didn’t Realize How Much Effort BMW Made to Make the M3 and M4 Sound Amazing
While BMW isn’t even thinking about dropping its current design approach (ahem, the bucktooth grille) on some of its sports car, Munich has been hard at work promoting the new M3/M4 via a mini-series of videos that focus on the performance sedan’s and coupe’s features.
This time around, we’re getting schooled on how and why the new M3 and M4 sound the way they do.
