from a South African car site:

"The new BMW M2, in coupé guise, will be launched in the next two years.

Following the German car manufacturer's revised naming strategy, the coupe and cabriolet models will carry the 2 Series designation.

Little info is still available about the M2's engine and performance figures but insiders have hinted that it will feature a 3.6-litre 24-valve unit.

This naturally aspirated engine will have an expected power output of about 275kW.

The other models in the 2 Series line-up will share its engines with the 1 Series, which include 2-litre petrol and 2-lire diesel units.

BMW will launch the 2 Series in the second half of 2005."

Second half of 2005 is here now, anyone hear more about this model?

Old info if it was. Although there are rumors of a 1-series body being tested with a 3.5L engine. The other rumor is of the same car with the 130i engine with a turbo. I think it is the mule for the M2. The coupe and sedan versions have been pushed back to next year at least and we still won't get anything until the 07 model year, late next year.

330 HP in a 2800# car. That should be fast.
