Earlier today we revealed you the fact that BMW will not offer the 1-Series Coupe and Convertible for the 2014MY. Of course, many of you folks already knew the reason but today this reason became official: 2-Series. Just like it did with the 3-Series Coupe and Convertible that were transformed into the 4-Series Coupe and Convertible, BMW will replace the 1-Series Coupe and Convertible with the 2-Series Coupe and Convertible.

BMW officially announced that it will unveil the 2-Series Coupe next Friday, on October 25th. As expected, BMW will offer the 218i, 225i, 220d versions but also top-of-the-range M235i Coupe. There will also be an M2 version that it is expected to debut in 2015. Both M235i and M2 will be powered by the six-cylinder 3.0-liter turbocharged engine rated at 320 hp (M235i) and at 350 hp (350 hp).

The BMW M2 will be capable to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in around 4.6 seconds, while the M235i will be 0.3 seconds slower. BMW 2-Series Coupe will be offered as standard with rear-wheel drive but the Bavarian manufacturer will also offer all-wheel drive as an option. A 2-Series GranCoupe is expected, following the 6-Series GranCoupe and the 4-Series GranCoupe.
