BMW 1 Series Supersport

I think this sounds like the best car to come out of BMW in a long time if it actually sees light of day:

Although, I'm really hoping that they go with an all aluminum 350hp turbo 4-cylinder motor. Then just give it a LSD, some really good brakes, optional racing seats, and make sure the car comes in under 2700lbs when lightly equipped. I'l all the way to my BMW dealer with cash in hand

Autocar UK returns with some new information on the rumored BMW 1 Series Supersports, an “M-like” model that will be placed below the M3. According to sources close to the magazine, the new car has been favored over a highly-awaited BMW supercar.
As we reported several times in the past, the “Supersports” model is based on the next generation 1 Series, more exactly, on the 135i Coupe. The car would compete with the Audi S3 and the UK pricing is rumored to start around £32,000.
An M division source somewhat confirms our previous statements: BMW needs to offer a new car for its enthusiasts, something that will replace the so-missed M1. With them moving towards smaller, more efficient cars, it is only wise to develop a super sporty car based on a 1 Series platform.

I'm sure they'd end up calling it something like a 135iS or a ///M135i

Yeah I was thinking the same thing. Chevrolet first used that term well over 40 years ago.
