🔥 UPDATE: 2023 G87 BMW M2 revealed early

The internet abhors a strict schedule, so it was only a matter of time before the new 2023 BMW M2 showed up online sooner than the M division would’ve liked.

This trio of photos, posted to Instagram over the weekend, reveal what we can expect from the new halo coupe’s styling.

And, while the car pictured has not been confirmed as an actual M2, the details clearly line up with the camouflaged car that BMW has been showcasing in the lead-up to the G87 M2’s October unveiling.

Of course, photos of this type – low resolution ‘potato phone’ shots captured at unflattering angles and distances – are rarely flattering, but there’s enough here to give buyers and fans an idea of what’s to come.

What do you think of the new M2’s look? I suspect it’ll look much better in the proper marketing photos – and, as always, we can likely expect an element of “I like it more in the flesh than I did in the photos” when it finally hits Australian roads next year.

September 7: New official preview shows up on social media

BMW’s M division has posted a fresh preview of its upcoming 2023 M2 hero coupe to social media this week, ahead of what is expected to be a mid October unveiling.

The new video shows little in the way of detail, however, with the lively and colourful camouflage worn by the prototype we drove in June probably offering a better look at what’s to come.

If nothing else, this latest clip gives fans a decent look at the new M2’s proportions, showing potential buyers a tougher set of proportions than those enjoyed by owners of the current M240i coupe.

Catch the teaser in the short clip below, and scroll down for our ongoing coverage on the upcoming new 2023 BMW M2.

May 2022: 2023 BMW M2 teased in sideways, smokey video

BMW has continued to preview its upcoming, second-generation 2023 M2 coupe, with the rear-wheel-drive sports car shown off drifting in the dark.

Having previously only teased the new M2 in camouflage, the latest BMW video briefly shows its upcoming model going sideways in an industrial area, while also showing a brief shot of its interior – albeit focusing on the driver.

The teaser comes as BMW’s M division marks its 50th year of operations this week, with the manufacturer telling its fans “get the presents” and to “get ready for playtime”.

June 2022: BMW M2 prototype review

We’ve now driven the new M2 on track! It’s still camouflaged, and technically a prototype, but this is your best insight yet on what’s to come.

“Specify this new M2 with the no-extra-cost manual, and you have a fairly-priced instant classic with no waiting list. A no-brainer, really.”

Teasers from last year have hinted at the M2 scoring a more agressive body than its 2 Series base, as the model was refreshed roughly 12 months ago into its second generation.

It’s tipped power will come from the S58 engine which drives its bigger M3 and M4 stablemates, although a slight detune to “only” 317kW would ensure it doesn’t knock the more established nameplates too quickly.

A manual gearbox for the M2 has been all but confirmed, potentially making it one of BMW’s last performance cars to be sold with a row-your-own ‘box.
