BMW's new M Performance models, enthusiast-tuned vehicles slotted below the hardcore M models but above the standard lineup, will start rolling into the States in early 2014. First in line will reportedly be the M235i coupe, set to debut at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, according to Autoweek.

As BMW is renaming the coupe and convertible models the 2 Series (the hatchback will retain its 1 Series nomenclature), the M235i coupe will be the official successor to the 1 Series M Coupe (shown above) which quickly sold out in our market last year after just 600 examples were offered for sale (worldwide, the production run was 6,000 units).

Autoweek is reporting that the M235i coupe will be fitted with BMW's N55 engine, a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six rated at 316 horsepower, mated to a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox. Rear-wheel drive will be standard, but all-wheel drive may be offered in some markets. Eventually, the automaker is expected to add an M235i convertible with a cloth roof and the same powertrain and driveline as the coupe.
